~ Pressing Matters~

Yesterday, I wrote about an ironing a pressing board my husband made for me. Perhaps I should have read Elizabeth Hartman's new book (which I just received and LOVE) prior to making it.

 In the chapter, "Materials, Supplies, and More," she wrote on making a pressing board, using that trusty staple gun, three layers of batting, and muslin or a neutral solid fabric as a cover. My pressing board was made using an old, raggedy perfectly good towel and very colorful fabric. No worries, though... It.Worked.Beautifully!!

My seams have never looked this good :-)

This block is the beginning of my latest project using Amanda Jean's Filmstrip quilt tutorial.

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog,

    I love your fabric selection.
