    I finally got the mini iron

    I finally bought the mini iron i've been wanting. It went on sale at Joann's and I just had to have it. lol
    I've been making the Eldon quilt and sewing 1 inch strips to make 4 1/2 blocks. I got tired of getting up and pressing after each strip. They also had a binding mat for pressing which works perfect right in front of my machine
    I am so glad I bought it too. It makes things easier when working with small pieces.
    However, I don't think I will be making anything else that has such small pieces.

    I like to iron my seams as I go when quilting. You will use it more often then you think and besides it is so darn cute I would have bought it too.

    I have the Eldon pattern, haven't started it yet. Please post yours when you get some of the blocks put together! I'd love to see how it's coming along.

    I like that binding mat also for pressing small pieces, it is very handy. I put a table next to the sewing machine when I am sewing projects that require "sew, press, sew, press" such as string quilts.

    What kind of iron is that? It looks a lot less likely to be a burn hazard (for the user) than the one I have!

    this is a Dritz iron that I bought from JoAnn's last weekend. It was 39.00 on sale for 19.00, and the little binding ironing pad was 14.00. So far I really like it.. You have to press your strips to get the correct size and it makes it easier and faster. No complaints
