Quilting is an art form that demands precision and careful planning, and having a dedicated quilt design wall can greatly enhance your creative process. Enter Felt Right tiles – an innovative solution that not only serves as an excellent design backdrop but also adds a pinnable surface to keep your fabric squares organized and off the floor.
1. Selecting Your Felt Right Tiles: The first step in creating a quilt design wall is choosing the right Felt Right tiles for your space. Consider the color palette and design aesthetic you want for your quilting haven. Felt Right offers a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to customize your design wall to match your personal style. Opt for a neutral background to make your quilt fabrics pop, or go bold with vibrant hues for an energizing creative environment. A good starting point is in our quilting section.
2. Planning Your Layout: Before adhering the Felt Right tiles to the wall, plan the layout of your quilt design space. Consider the size of your typical quilting projects and the available wall space. You may choose to cover an entire wall or create a designated section. Check out our online Design Studio to create your own design from scratch.
3. Installation Made Easy: One of the perks of using Felt Right tiles is their easy installation process. These tiles are designed with a peel-and-stick application, making them perfect for a DIY quilt design wall. Start from the middle point of your design and work your way out on the wall. The simplicity of installation means you can have your quilt design wall ready in no time. With our Paint Safe adhesives, this project will leave your wall damage free. If you plan to hang heavy quilts on the tiles, we recommend switching to our Commercial Grade tabs at checkout for a stronger hold.
4. Enhancing Functionality: Felt Right tiles not only serve an aesthetic purpose but also enhance the functionality of your quilt design wall. The soft surface of the tiles allow for batting, flannel, and craft felt to stick without pins. Some quilters choose to place a large piece of batting on the tiles to then stick their fabric squares to. Without that batting, you will need to use pins to hold the fabric up. Additionally, the acoustic properties of Felt Right tiles can help dampen sound in your quilting space, creating a more focused and serene atmosphere.
In conclusion, creating a quilt design wall with Felt Right tiles is a simple yet impactful way to elevate your quilting experience. With a personalized and functional space, you can immerse yourself in the joy of quilting, surrounded by a design wall that reflects your unique style and creativity.
