    Ok I wasn't sure about this tool. I have purchased many tools for quilting and found few where worth the price and sometimes difficult to use. Gadget queen here! I have almost every tool made in recent years for quilting. I read reviews about this pressing tool and they where favorable. So I jumped in and bought it. :mrgreen: I am soooooo very happy I did. I am doing 2BOM and HST blocks , 8 in each block so they can stretch very easily. I did not believe how nice it works in preventing the awful stretching of the block. Try it out and see what you think. :thumbup:

    Is this something that is used for pressing? How exactly do you use a Steady Betty?

    I saw there are several sizes; ironing board cover,hand covers for FMQ , and several sizes for pressing. I purchased the 16 by 16. Great size for large blocks.

    I bought one from Joanns with my 50% coupon, but due to moving I have not had a chance to use it. Can't wait.

    Would you please enlighten those of us who have never heard about Steady Betty?

    What is she all about?

    Oh so sorry. You can goggle Steady Betty and read their speal. But what it is a pressing board with a sponage type fabric that allows you to press a square and it does not distort. Love mine. Also put it in search box here and read what others have said.

    We could be gadget twin queens! I love trying new quilting tools. I may not use it but for one project but if it works it's worth it. I'm not big on making do or making my own tools if I don't have to and it never looks as nice. I have the Steady Betty and use it for all my block pressings. It's quality made and it's two sided. It's worth it just for pressing strip sets.
