Huh?  You’re probably asking what the heck is this and why would we want to look at it.
Here’s the rest of the story.  I have a friend whose hobby is ironing.  I kid you not.  While stuck inside because of all this snow she told me she not only cleaned out all her drawers and closets but she spent a lot of time ironing.  “I ironed everything,” she told me.  “I iron a lot,” she said.  “Always have.”   Then she proceeded to tell me that the other day she was putting her iron away while it was still hot and it burned whatever she sat it on and got her iron all gunky.  I knew right then what I would make for her.  I made the above ironing pad.
I started out to make the larger version of the little ironing caddy that I blogged about here, but discovered I didn’t have enough of what was on the supply list.  So I made my own pattern using the fabric and Insul Brite that I had on hand.  I added the two ties in case she needed to wrap the pad around the iron when she put it away. Now I bet you think it's stunning...right? ;o)

  • The Modern Bee will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 26, from 10-2.  This is a new Bee being formed for those who are interested in Modern Quilting.  This initial meeting we will be discussing what modern quilting is and discuss what our meetings will involve.  Also information will be distributed about the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild and how we can participate in that.

ON ANOTHER NOTEModa Bake Shop has a tutorial for a Candy Scraps quilt. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

What a nice gift! I've known others who enjoy ironing. I don't understand it, but then they don't understand how I could enjoy sewing.
