Winter/windmills sewn together

      The blocks from the Winter/Windmill in the Cultural Fusion book were sewn together. What fun! I do not think I will put on a border. It is lap size. Wish I would have had more of the Marimekko fabric. I want to make another!
     I also finally made my portable design walls. I had to buy a whole 4 x 8 sheet of insulation board- the foil faced, cut it in half in the parking lot in order to fit it in the car. I cut a 3 x 4, 2 x 3, and some small left overs. I still have part of the sheet. I covered it with fleece on the large one, and felt on the smaller. I attached it with clear duct which it difficult to cut and handle. I hope it stays attached. The walls are light, rigid and pins go straight into it. Now I can work on some more denim applique quilts.

I used duct tape to hold 2 boards back to back (1" that I wanted to be 2") and it is letting loose. My boards weren't the foil covered so maybe yours will stay stuck.

Your quilt is looking great, and what a great idea for design boards.

Make another one.. Please! This one turned out amazing. I wish you had more fabric too but this gives us a chance to see another one of your quilts and explore more fabric combinations.
I too use duct tape as Wanda mentioned. It works. Also I used micro fiber polar fleece which does not peel and fabric sticks better than any other material - I think!
