We bought a sheet of Fome Cor - Foam Board from PSP in Petone, who also delivered it. The board is only 5mm thick and incredibly light, similar to the paper coated foam board available in art shops.
The sheet needed to be trimmed to fit the space where it is to hang, super easy to cut with quilting tools! blunt (for fabric) rotary blade, ruler and cutting board.

The board is attached to the wall with 3M velcro-like strips that had been cut narrower. The velcro is on both sides so the board can be removed and turned around so the shiny side can be used.
Works a treat, maybe my quilts will now get a bit bigger!
