Irish Chain

Another customer quilt finished.  This is Barbara's first quilt.  It was a Quilt in A Day pattern, that she said took years.......  Turned out very good.  Quilted with an all over design that she picked out.  I added the binding and now all she has to do is sew it down.  She is thrilled.  Now on to other quilts for Barbara.

Just had to show off my new toy.  I bought an Oliso iron when in Knoxville.  They were on sale at a great price at the AQS show.  Well, got it out today and had fun.  It has little legs that it sits on.  You dont have to stand it up or knock it over.  You just touch the handle the legs draw up and iron you will go.  Let go of the handle and the legs pop up!!!  Amazing.  It irons well also.  I did the binding on the quilt above,  making a nice crease in the fabric.  Very nice.  Steams great, heats up fast.  The booklet says it will stay hot for 30 min before shutting off.  And then will heat back up fast.  For those of you that dont know, I needed a new iron anyway.  Ranger, when he was a smaller puppy, chewed the cord just a little.  Well, DH put electrical tape on it, but I never felt good about it.  So, new iron and I am happy.

Happy Quilting,
