New To Me Use For My Vegetable Brush!

Hey, just thought I'd let you in on the use of my vegetable brush. I love it when I can make an item do double duty! I have a large design wall in my basement, but everytime I put a quilt or quilt blocks on it I end up with a ton of strings all over it. If I put a new quilt up I get some of those strings on the back of the new quilt, so I spend a lot of time using a lint brush roller to get them off the wall. Today, I decided there had to be an easier way. Yep, enter my vegetable brush. Here is a pick of a small portion of my design wall before I cleaned it with the vegetable brush! And this is what it looks like after I finished brushing it: And this is a picture of the reason I wanted to start with a clean design wall. My daughter asked me make a quilt for a friend of hers that is getting married on October 6, 2012. With the time constraints, I opted to make a lap quilt. More time....bigger quilt....sorry Sara. I think the couple will like it. Sara said that their colors are black, gray, and white. I just had to add a pop of red! I think the binding will be red too! You can find this quilt pattern on . It's under the free patterns and it's called Nature Rythms. Til Next Time~

Thanks, Terry. Wishing I would have placed at least one of the "red" blocks in the center. I
should have taken a picture before I started sewing. :(
