Last year, I started a series of posts about remaking the quilts from my book, Modern Patchwork. It's been a really fun project to work on - one that has been, unfortunately, derailed by a bunch of difficult life stuff that's happened since then.
My counter height pressing table is one of the most useful things in my sewing room. It's wider and sturdier than an ironing board, and the plywood base makes it a much better choice for pressing patchwork seams.
I've gotten a lot of questions about how I put my pressing table together so, while making a new cover last night, I took some photos to write a little tutorial. Here goes!
This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I made a neon version of the Honey Quilt. You can see my earlier post about it here.
I had all kinds of plans for photographing this finished quilt, some of which may have involved a black light, but I ended up finishing it just in time to meet my shipping deadline, so I had to settle for a quick photo shoot complete with a lot of dead leaves. (Why all the dead leaves at this time of year?!)
