Quick Time Tip Tuesday

Pressing Station

This tip took me years to implement! It has resulted in flatter blocks and easier piecing. You don't need a lot of space. I have a mini ironing board that lays across the top of my printer/scanner. My iron can even be tucked behind on the desk so it doesn't stick out temptig little hands when not in use. This desk is on the opposite wall from my sewing machine. Easy access is key.

Now I just stack up some things to press or iron from a couple projects and go for it. Or, if I only have one thing that needs done it's not an ordeal to press it.

Quick and Neat.
Make room for this tip. Your quilt tops will thank you.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

This is so true. I have a little sewing room downstairs...outside entrance only and no faciities down there, so if I chose to sew there I get a lot of exercise running up and down, or getting rained on or I get to see the stars or hear birds...as I commute back and forth. But there is an ironing board right behind the machine. Upstairs, where I like to be, I have to set everything up..lift out the maching, move the computer...and sewing still doesn't happen unless I am willing to get out the little ironing board; the closer it is to where I am working, the better.
