Gosh, you all are so sweet! Thank you for the nice comments about my new studio - if I could, I'd have everyone over for tea, lemon scones, and crafty conversation :)
My fabric panels are super simple and I wanted to share how I made them. The inspiration was what many of us face when we have fabric we love but can't bear to cut it - what to do? I used foam core, double stick tape (I like poster tape especially or ones available for scrapbookers) and wall putty to put them all together. Cut your foam core to accommodate the piece of fabric that you are using. Make sure you have about 1" to 1 1/2" of fabric to fold over to the backside.
Place the double stick along the edges of the foam core, gently pull the fabric over each corner and press down onto the tape, and then working from opposite sides, gently pull taut the fabric along the sides and press down onto the tape.
I used wall putty to put them up so I wouldn't have a bunch of little holes in the wall. It also makes it easy to move them around and take down if you want to use a panel as a background for a picture; see here.
If you don't want to wrap the fabric around (or there just isn't enough fabric to do it) then put the double stick tape along the edges on the front and press your fabric on. You might need to neaten the edges a bit.
I think it would be so cool to create a whole quilt on the wall with the panels butted up next to each other, don't you? There's actually a ton of stuff that would be fun to do using this method. If anyone gives it a try let me know, I'd love to see!
