Design Wall Monday – Literally!

Today’s project: install a design wall. Check! That’s 3.75 sheets of 1″ x 24″ X 96″ rigid foam insulation, screwed to the wall with drywall screws, anchored with large washers. I removed 8 inches from each board to get the right height, which was remarkably easy to do for a quilter. Since each sheet was […]
