Design Wall Help

I finally have a little bit of space I can use as a design wall.  What is the best way to make a design wall with the least amount of damage to the wall itself (I am renting an apartment)?  Any ideas?

WIP Wednesday - 02/29/2012

I'm back!! Did you miss me?  Of course you did.  I don't even know why I bothered asking.

My move went well.  I still don't have some of the furniture, but it is on order and will arrive soon.  There are still a few boxes that need to be unpacked, but I'll get to them.  During the move and the settling in period, I have not done much sewing.  If it weren't for my bees (thanks, guys) I may not have started back up yet.  But the bees are due every month, just like bills.  One heck of a motivation!

Here is what I worked on.

Always Bee Learning for February was a Supernova block.

Quilting NewBees for February is string blocks.

The only other thing I have been working on is getting my kits ready for March's Always Bee Learning group.  I have been cutting up fabric. I am doing a test block tonight with one of the kits to make sure the fabric provided is the right amount.  It's hard to tell with mosaic blocks.

I want to include something for my bee-mates, but there is no time for anything hand-made.  Suggestions?  What would you like to find as a surprise in your kit?

I will be absent from my blog for a month or 2 while I make the giant move from Ohio to Louisiana.  Maybe as I pack and unpack, I will find something I squirreled away to give to my lovely followers?  What do you think?  Good idea?
