They are wonky log cabin blocks with my bright scraps. The idea came from the Quilting Modern book. I now have 12 blocks done that will finish at 12" each, I have a setting in mind and need a few more blocks to do it.
Don't cha just love my little iron!! A friend had one at a sewing day, I was really impressed at how hot it got and it steams!! It's perfect for setting beside my sewing machine for pressing small things and for taking with me to sewing days. I ordered mine through Home Depot since I have a store close to me and it was free shipping to the store. Here is a different view of it, oh it fits in the palm of your hand just to give you an idea of it's size.
I also want to share with you my new little traveling ironing board-it's a TV tray I purchased at Walmart. It was a wood top, so I covered it with aluminum foil to protect it from moisture. Then layered with Warm and Natural cotton batting, and the silver fabric for covering ironing boards with. The hubbs stapled it to the back for me. I also love just having it sit right beside the sewing machine for ironing small projects.
Linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday, Freemotion by the River and Let's Bee Social this week.
