What is a quilting board?
Quilt boards are simple boards that have one side covered with fabric, usually flannel. Quilters use these boards to place and arrange quilt pieces when designing a block or to hold pieces in place so that they are easily accessible during the sewing process.
What is a design wall?
Design walls are most often created with a material that ‘sticks’ to fabric, making it easy to position your work on the wall without using pins or other implements to keep pieces in place. Design walls are available commercially, but it’s easy to make an inexpensive portable or permanent quilt design wall.
