Mini Design Boards

When I saw these on Lori Holts blog I had to make them (Part 1 and Part 2). They are perfect for my short spurts of time to work on Dear Jane and other projects. I often cut for 15 mins, then the next day maybe sew for 15 mins and maybe 3 days later sew some more. These will keep my pieces together by block and will make it easy to carry to the ironing board. Mine are 10" square, but I may just have to make some bigger ones too!

Most excellent. A great way to create, especially when you're a full time working woman with many responsibilities!!! :>

Cute and such a manageable size, too!

I need to make a handful of these boards too. Yours are great. Some in various sizes would be fabulous to have on hand.

I love my design boards!! I have at least 15 of them and mine are 15" square. Can't sew without them. I have posted about them a few times to encourage others to make them. I think they are a "must have!" Spread the word!!
