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?!)
I'm a big fan of sparkle and shine, but I've been slow to get on board the sparkly fabric trend. I love a challenge though, so when I started seeing Michael Miller's Mirror Ball Dot fabric pop up in my local shops, I thought it was a good time to give it a try.
I mentioned the other day that my friends had been pushing me to finish the pattern for the Sewing Circle Tote. This is another pattern that I've been asked to publish, and I'm happy to say that both the Iron Cozy and the Sewing Circle Tote patterns will be available on Monday, April 1.
