Design Wall Monday, and Angels

 The July color is red over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and last month's blocks for the Itty Bitty Row Along were these little hearts, so that is what is on my design ironing board. Later on in this post you can see the real work horse ironing board I invented to iron the flimsy and it's backing before sending off to the quilter.

Lately I've been seeing Angels in the clouds... Here is the one I saw 2 days ago

And here is the ironing facility I invented... a cotton blanket covered by a cotton sheet on top of my dining room table.  You can move the whole thing in order to get to the unironed spots. (I ironed from the bottom of the flimsy so I'd get the seam allowances to go where I wanted them.) 

Today I've gotta find a box and then ship it.
Now I see how Bargello works - I might make another MUCH SMALLER quilt like it.
Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful weather. It's been unbearably hot here, but the heat only lasts for a few looooooooong hours in the afternoon. We can manage this. Our next home is in cool country and we are looking forward to that.



  1. Love your ironing station...makes it much easier to cover a large area and not have to move the quilt top so much ...ironing boards are just not made for quilters!

  2. Juro que também vi anjos no céu das fotos!

  3. Those little red hearts are darling. I really like having a bigger area to iron big quilts and hunks of fabric on. Hum, bargello? I bet I have an unfinished one in my UFO collection.... your's looks nice even from the back!

  4. We've been in the upper 60's the past 2 days. We're supposed to reach 77 today (not there yet). You'll enjoy the cooler temps soon. Unfortunately, mosquitoes are terrible this year.

  5. HI Terri ! The red heart blocks are adorable ! We love the pretty print fabric in those blocks. And, what a great idea to invent an ironing facility like that, in order to get to the unironed spots. Looks like a real time saver !
    Best wishes, from Marina and Daryl
