    Yay! I’m so glad I found this video! It has help me so much with the sampler quilt I’m making. I was wondering what the white surface you are ironing on is made of? Is it your desk or do you have some kind of board over your desk? I would love to be able to just iron right beside my machine as I sew:-)
    Thanks, Jessica

    • Hi, I am actually using someone elses studio in this video and in fact am using her ironing table as my desk! The table is covered with a padded layer and cotton, possibly sheeting, over the top. Makes a great surface for ironing, I have a simialr surface at home, on top of the chest deep feezer!

    Can you tell me what kind of iron you recommend and also what kind of pad are you ironing on. Thank you so much. I am thoroughly enjoying all of your videos. I am trying to collect all the tools that I neex to start quilting and don’t know what I should purchase.

    • Hi, thanks for watching the video. As for an iron, I usually use a middle of the range steam iron, not a fancy one as I find them harder to manage. If you can get one with a blue non-stick soul plate, that is helpful but now essential. In this video I am ironing on a table that has been covered with padding and cotton fabric. At home I ron either on a regular ironing board or a chest style deep freezer that I have covered with a couple of old woolen blankets and cotton fabric on top. Works well for me, especially when ironing large quilt tops.
      As far as quilting supplies in gerneral are concerned, you could consider a rotary cutter, self-healing cutting board and quilters ruler. I always suggest to get the best possible ones you can afford as some of the cheaper ones don’t last so well.
