I am definitely making some progress on my patriotic drunkards path quilt. I pieced my blocks into four square units to make it simpler to arrange them in a pleasing way on my "design wall". Since I live in a fairly small apartment with my husband and three kids here in Germany, I really don't have a dedicated space where I can arrange quilt blocks. In the past, I would wait for the kids to go to sleep, move the dining table, mop the floor, and stand on a chair to get a view from above of my quilt arrangement. This has gotten a bit old so I thought that I would try to hang a temporary design wall on my closet with hangers and fleece. It was a complete fail. Getting them up wasn't too hard, but any rearranging made ten blocks fall off. Taking this photo with the blocks on the fleece was a miracle. In the end, this did work, but it wasn't a time saver. I like the idea of getting the quilt blocks up on a design wall, but I need something more stable and also compact so that I can store it while it's not in use.
