Nothing stuck to the Wall. I am very disappointed as I bought a design wall from Fons and Porter about 10 years ago and it worked beautifully. That version had a sticky surface.
I gave this a 2 as the grid is nice, the grommets are a nice touch, but I had to attach batting to this to have it actually hold any blocks. I sent an email to F&P to let them know how displeased I was with this item. I did not purchase this from their site, but it was still their endorsed product.With that said, they do have some items I am pleased with.
I love this design wall. I'm new to quilting and can't visualize things quite as well as more experienced quilters plus my husband and kids were beginning to complain about me taking over the living room floor or dining room table with quilt blocks! I used 3M removable hangers and have my design wall in my sewing room right behind my sewing table, where's it's soon convenient. i can leave blocks hanging for days and they never fall off!
The quality of this design wall is not what I expected. It's plastic on the other side and you can't get the creases out for it to hang properly. Doesn't appear that you can iron it.
I have one at my home and one at my quilting retreat Two Chatelaines farm. These work well and have stood up to regular use. The grommets are sturdy and hang the wall well. My quests are requesting more design wall space and this is the one I will again be purchasing.
I don't know why I waited so long to get this. I hung it up from its generously-sized grommets with those small clear Command hooks (not included) (so I could quickly and unobtrusively take it down if necessary) and started using it right away to sort and place blocks from a mystery quilt project I'm working on. The blocks stick without any pins or tape...and they stay up where placed while I move them around a bit every day to find the best color balance. I'm thinking about getting another one as I generally have at least two or three projects going at a time! I love that the grid lines show through enough for aid to placement but not so much as to detract from the quilt blocks' design.
