    I have the Miracle cover, it is a good cover but I find it slippery!

    I find any silver sided works for me with a thin padding.

    I hate that silver stuff. I have a good cotton duck cover on my board. www.allbrands.com has a good selection of cotton duck and cotton canvas covers.

    I bought one at Hobby Lobby. It is wonderful! It was a little pricey I think $30+ but I used a coupon. It does have the silver fabric and nice firm padding. I'm sorry I don't remember the name of it but I recall that they only carried 2 ironing board covers. I've had mine for over a year and it is still going strong. I iron something everyday whether it is clothes or fabric.

    I have a BigBoard over my ironing board. I like it because it's a big rectangle. It's so much easier to iron backings. With my regular board they get re-wrinkled a bit, but with the BigBoard, not so much.

    The down side is that it's bigger and I don't have a lot of room for my ironing board. Sometimes I take it off, but then I have to lean it against the wall, which isn't really much better.

    Another vote for cotton duck here, but I make my own.

    I do not prewash the fabric.
    I cut out the basic outline of the ironing board plus a casing and seam allowance.
    I sew a casing and insert elastic.
    Once the cover is on and adjusted, I spritz the duck with water. (Quack!)
    As it dries, the cotton duck will shrink to fit the board like a glove. The texture of the cotton duck holds my blocks as well as a Steady Betty.

    I agree with Holice on this one. I've had some sad experiences with other covers.

    I use the Miracle one. Yes it was alot of money. Had it for a couple years, I quilt 20 hours a week on average and I beat the crap out of it. Wash it all the time, fuse on it, spill on it. And it keeps coming back for more. It is wearing around the corners because I have a homemade Big Board that pokes at the corners. Also I did spill something on it that made a stain. So it is on my list to get a new one at the quilt show.

    I bought one from Annie's, formerly Clothilde. It has lines and angles on it, is very heavy duck cloth, and very sturdy. I have a larger ironing board bought years ago at BJ's and they had the right size. I love it and use it to death, a la seamstome!
