  1. The cover is gorgeous. I have always wondered if the seams in the cover affect the ironing? Can they be felt?

    1. Hi Ali, Tahnsk for your feedback. The seams don't affect my ironing at all, I cant feel them. I think the only thing that may affect ironing would the the style of quilting you use. I have stipled the scrappy squares section, and I don't use this for ironing often because ou can feel the quilting. On the Herringtbone section, I have just done some straight line quilting which doesn't affect ironing at all :)

  9. i have seen tehis before and actually have done it. My only suggestions are to press your seam open on the quilt design to make it thinner and less likely to creat bumps or ridges and prewash the fabric, several times, if you use the vivid colors.. I had one with a red fabric and had dye transfer to the garment I was ironing with steam setting. After that, I made one with only pastel or calico light colors.

  10. I just love my ironing board cover. I changed the design to fit a larger board. My herringbone pattern goes in reverse to the top herringbone. I also left out the checkered board at the bottom. Thank you for this pattern. It was so fun to make.
