New ironing table.

I mentioned my new ironing table my last blog and want to give update on this. I like the bigger surface to work on and the height. I put a layer of fabric and a ironing fabric on the top to pad it a little. That is secured with clips. The only down side is the metal expands when heated to much. I have a padded board to use when I need to apply extra pressure.

Christmas in September

I have decided to pull out my box of Christmas fabric and see what I can make or finish. I found two quilts that I started and should finish and am cutting out a third. They will be small lap size quilts. I want to make some table runners also. I divided the fabric by colors and will go from there.

We will see how many get done. If you need something just give a yell, or email. There will probably be hot pot holders in the works too.

I got a table to replace my ironing board a couple of weekends ago. It has been working well.

It is 48 inches wide so I should be able to iron a whole piece of fabric. The steel top has a tendency to expand if it gets hot so I am watching that.

A better picture of the binding

Quilt is done

The baby quilt I have been working on is done.  I used a new technique on the binding.  Two strips of fabric are sew together first then when folded it looks like a piped edge. Trick I learned on someone's blog.
