I'M IN LOVE WITH MY IRON AND I DON'T CARE WHO KNOW'S IT!!!
Seriously though I AM. I totally underestimated how bad my old iron had gotten, not that hot, definitely not very steamy. Ironing with my new Reliable Velocity iron is A DREAM. I can't wait for my pal Greg to get his next week so I can see what he thinks. Holy cow people. My quilt is so flat. I want to IRON ALL THE THINGS. Ok, ok, lets not get carried away. Sorry.
Yesterday I put the borders on this quilt. I love how it turned out. I'm debating on centers for a few of the flowers, but I'm in no hurry. Will I quilt it myself? Probably not, though it's not all that big. But I know for a fact my attention span isn't what it used to be and I'd probably be stitching along fine then just be OVER IT and do something stupid.
So I won't risk it. I'll add it to the pile of things to be quilted, which is getting pretty big. I also might throw more centers on those flowers.. I tried them out when I was first fusing them all down and didn't like them, but maybe some different fabrics will help or some buttons or something.
Details details.. I used my Sizzix Big shot, with this die, here's the link. I also used this leaf die, several flower dies and this circle die. Anchor I cut out by hand (like a savage.)
Ok, hope you have a great week! xo
