Almost finished

Well here it is...my new ironing area. 2 cabinets and a topper I covered with batting, ironing fabric and Simplicity by Moda. My Tennessee friend did a dresser in a similar way but with pink floral fabric. Since I have totally copied her enough this week I didn't want to repeat her theme. Aqua/blue and green do mix well with the rest of my home decor. I love it though...it makes me want to iron! Is THAT possible? haha It's been another good week....I was able to get 2 more quilts from my machine quilter. My Smores quilt is back and I love it even more now that it is quilted.

Swirls with lime colored thread....it's perfect. This isn't the best picture but I didn't want to leave any of the hearts out.
And the detail of the heart meander quilting. Lovely....now to bind them...whew...4 to do now....and 3 more coming.

I so, so, so love your ironing station! I think I'm going to have to copy the idea when my husband transforms part of his office into a sewing area for me. I just love it!

If I HAVE to iron, I think I would like your little ironing center too. I do iron Doc's dress shirts and anything else that I absolutely have to, but I've never learned to love to iron...yet...maybe there's hope for me. CUTE QUILTS!
