I'm currently remaking some version of each quilt in my book, Modern Patchwork. This post is the first about a new version of my Happy Hour quilt. You can read more about the project, including links to the previous installments and a schedule for those remaining, here.
When I chose Happy Hour as my next quilt for this project, I didn't have any idea what I was going to do with it. I went back and forth with different ideas, but I couldn't settle on anything I liked that wasn't just making the same quilt with different fabric.
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!
