Quilt Design Boards

Another great idea I happened to come across while cruising the internet. These quilt design boards are easy, inexpensive and cute.

It is explained here on this video with Lori Holt at the Fat Quarter Shop.

The materials are simple to obtain. Here is what I used: foam core board (like you use for posters), leftover jelly roll strips for the outer edge finish, leftover lightweight batting, a glue gun and a dull-bladed rotary cutter.

I got six 10x10 inch squares from the standard size foam core board (20x30). These will work well for 6 inch or 8 inch block designs. I may make a large one - the size of the standard board to work on mini quilt ideas.

Happy crafting to all~!
