Rolling Ironing Board And The Witchy Quilt

With the help of my crew, I turned my big Sullivan ironing board into a solid and movable way to press all those fabric projects. I'm loving it! 

The ironing board easily sits on top of the cart and the Velcro strap slipped through the
drawer area. The board is heavy enough that it doesn't slide around.
The wheels are a fabulous bonus to roll this thing where I need it.
It's about 35"-36" tall with the wheels and board.

I bought the ironing board online from Joann's and the microwave cart and board cover from Amazon.
Here are the links (I'm not an affiliate):

The big rectangle ironing board can be found HERE.

The ironing board cover can be found HERE.

The microwave cart can be found HERE. It comes unassembled.
The drawer has been great for holding my clapper, glue stick, and scissors.
I'm sure I'll find more things to throw in there.

I'm usually sewing applique quilts that I design, but this one called my name.
I wish when it was calling my name that it had let me know that it has a gazillion
1-1/2" pieces in almost every block. They make me crazy...I like big pieces!

After having to use my seam ripper way too many times, I thankfully remembered to use
that fabulous glue stick to make all the seams match.
Dab a little on the seam and iron both layers for a few seconds to hold it in place.
After sewing them, I only had a couple that moved a bit and weren't spot on.

It made a fast job of  matching the seams in the stars and skirt. 

I started with the skirt because it was what got my attention in this pattern.
The directions in the pattern had pictures. I love picture directions!

I've been taking pictures of each section as I go along. I can't wait to finish it!

 Joan at Moosestash Quilting and Carla at Creatin' In The Sticks have been
working just like me to get ready for the Cackling Stitches BOM. We're very excited!

Joan and I have been thinking of blog hop challenges for next year.
We're almost ready with those, too!
Here's a sneak peek for January. Details will be released soon.

The rest of the year will have these blog hop happenings:

I hope you join us next week for Monster Mash!


  1. I love the Quilted Witch's patchwork skirt. This is going to be a wonderful quilt.

  2. Carol this is so, so cute! I love the fussy cut "Out Of Candy"!

  3. Oooh, I love a sneaky peek! Thanks for the glue stick tip. I bet my bohin glue stick I use for hexagons would work even better! I'm not sewing much at the moment, but a tiny bit gets done. Good luck on that witch's skirt. I keep seeing that picture different places, and I am so tempted, but resisting because I know I'm not up to speed yet.

  4. Love your ironing board and your sneak peek is great! The skirt is awesome on the witch...need to hop back in to the hop world...I am thinking Dec or January!
