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!
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.
I finished a couple of samples this morning and I like them so much that I had a hard time leaving them at Modern Domestic!
I'll be teaching a text quilts workshop there this Spring that will cover two methods of adding letters to your quilt projects. I'll post again when I have exact dates for my upcoming classes but, in the meantime, I just couldn't wait to share photos of these pillows! You can read about the classes here.
This is part of a year-long 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, the featured quilt from Modern Patchwork is Neighborhood, which appears on Pages 34 - 41. I made a pillow version using a single block, and you can find my post about making the block here.
I've gotten a lot of questions about how I made the panels for my quilted Weekender Bag and, since I'm in the process of making a second one, I was able to take some photos and write up a little tutorial.
