  2. black gunky stuff on my iron

    by , 12-29-2012 at 05:42 AM
    I had been making doll clothes for Christmas and using some old nylon pieces -- thought I had tested them with my iron, but apparently it was just heating up -- instant melt away!!! Couldn't budge the gunk with anything and read on this site that ironing over salt on a plain white paper would work -- and it did -- thanks so much to whoever posted that tip. Saved my almost new Rowenta!!!

  5. Sewing pieced HST's

    by , 12-26-2012 at 02:02 PM
    I am making a quilt with pairs of strip sets. One strip set has the seams going one way, the other has the seams going the other way. I am to place the two sets right sides together and match the seams before cutting into 6-1/2" squares. Each pair of squares is to then be cut once on the diagonal, then the two resulting pairs are to be sewn together, forming the HST's.
