BlockButler quilter's design wall system lets you mix and match block designs as easily as rearranging magnets on a refrigerator.

BlockButler is easy to use, easy to maintain and long lasting. As a single sheet or in sections, you will find BlockButler the simplest project wall system you'll ever try.

BlockButler's unique self-stick surface holds without tape, tacks or pins. Made of a special double-sided tacky material that leaves no sticky residue on walls and surfaces, Block Butler is perfect for all kinds of quilt and craft projects and great for taking projects to and from classes.

BlockButler Product Instruction Sheet

  • BlockButler is a unique and versatile design wall system. It can be used on most flat surfaces such as painted and wallpapered walls, windows, mirrors and wooden doors.
  • BlockButler , because of its unique features, is ideal for use when a dedicated design wall space is limited, when you want to take a section to guilds or retreats or when you do not want to damage walls.
  • BlockButler can be used in sections and can easily be transported to classes or guilds for display or even take on trips.
  • BlockButler will last for many years without losing its tackiness or leaving any residue on walls or fabric.

BlockButler can be washed by hand in warm water and mild detergent if necessary to remove any oily or dissolvable matter. It will not lose its tacky surface. Hang on line to air dry only.

Complete instructions comes with each BlockButler along with a test piece to use on the intended surface.

FAQ: BlockButler NOT Sticking to the Wall

If your climate or room is very dry then you might want to give it a little humidity, BlockButler thrives on it. BlockButler also doesn't like fans blowing on it. If any of those are the conditions, you might want to make some adjustments there. You might also try a light spritzing or misting the side that will be against the wall with water, then let it rest overnight before installing it again. Try securing with blue painters tape until BlockButler learns where it is supposed to be. After a short while you can remove the tape (no harm to walls) and it should behave nicely. Walls do tend to get a film on them like windows. Washing the wall with a little TSP (Trisodium Phosphate), from the hardware store, should help BlockButler stay in place also.

FAQ: Blocks NOT staying on the BlockButler

Occasionally this happens when the BlockButler is first used. It is puzzlement as to why it drops the blocks because when first BlockButler tested blocks stuck by throwing them at the wall. It appears that BlockButler is like an organ transplant; it wants to reject the blocks until it gets acclimated to its new home. The BlockButler has been encased in plastic for a while and probably needs to absorb some moisture from the air. Try a very light spritz of water before going to bed and it should work fine the next morning.
