I loved the idea of a design wall but didn't think I had space for one in my small quilting room until I hung a flannel-backed tablecloth from my shelving unit. I made a hem in one end large enough to accommodate a 1" dowel and attached the other end to the top of the unit. My instant wall rolls up on top of the shelving unit when not in use.
