Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

Bought a new ironing board cover a while ago, but the padding wore thin in some spots right away. Instead of taking it off to change it, I covered the old pad with a new muslin pad and cover. Love the extra padding...fewer seam lines show through.

I would love a TOL iron. I think quilting would be in my plans.

Muslins are my new best friend, I don't use them for everything, though; I definitely need them for pants, and for my daughter I need them for tops. Don't be afraid to slice and dice the muslin- That's where all your adjustments and most of your tweaking should be done.
