My mini design boards

I've been enjoying reading the blogs about the Farmer's Wife quilt-a-long. And I think Lori Holt's mini design board is a brilliant idea for working on the 6-inch blocks. I followed her excellent tutorial to create five mini design boards.

This was my first experience using a hot glue gun and I learned a few things. First, they mean it when they say it is a hot glue gun. Second, my hot glue gun is not a precision instrument. Maybe next time I'll figure out how to use it without burning my fingers or dripping hot glue all over.

I like the way they turned out, especially the map fabric from Moda's Peace on Earth collection. I'm looking forward to using them.

You'll find these are great tools especially for those "hundreds of pieces" blocks that really need to be laid out before sewing.

I still haven't put borders on mine. I have labels to catch up on, maybe I'll do it when I get to them.
