An Inexpensive Kitchen Tool Does The Trick!
Design walls (and boards) are practically a must-have for quilters, as you can lay fabric pieces and blocks on them and move things around to find an arrangement you like. They’re typically made with a nubby surface that fabric will stick to, like fleece, flannel or batting.
However, surfaces that allow fabric to stick also tend to collect loose threads and lint. Over time the design wall or board may become less “sticky” as debris accumulates.
Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict has found a simple way to remove that debris, and quickly. A few swipes across her design wall with an inexpensive silicone scrubber leaves it clean and ready to go.
Learn more in the following article. (She also has a great tip for storing needles and explains why she LOVES the Hera marker.)

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
