One more area on Murrieta Stars is done – yes this quilt does seem like it is moving along nicely – but remember it is a big quilt so yes it will be taking awhile and it will be well into the New Year before it is done. There are 6 or 7 rows of stars and I’m only on the first one.
About half of the leaves are now appliqued on this border of Fall Harvest – I mainly pick it up to work on while the evening news is on.
One more bird is done for Bird Brain. I tried out my little iron – brand is Clover – I bought it on Amazon as I have prime which meant no shipping and the price was lower then anywhere else that I saw.
Here is is with the box – it is a small iron. The cord is a good length for working at your sewing table. If you click on the photo it will take you to Amazon and tell about the product.
The only complaint I had to make is that it seemed to take a long time before it got hot. The directions say that the indicator light well go off when it is hot – well – it took a long time for it to do that – in fact I was about done pressing the pieces I wanted pressed when the light finally went off. Then I left it plugged in to keep it hot while I was making my bird so that I could press as needed and then I noticed that when I wasn’t using it the light would come back on indicated that it was no longer at the hot temperature but when I used it – it seemed hot to me. So I’m I pleased with the iron – I’m not sure! There is no steam but I knew that – it does come with a very tiny spray bottle so you can spray water on your fabric – I think I would just as soon buy a tiny spray bottle instead you can usually find them at Wal-Mart or other stores and toss this tiny one away. The main thing would be to turn your iron on and let it heat up way before you need it – it took between 5-10 minutes for this one to heat up – much longer than any iron of mine has ever taken to heat.
Here are the 11 Birds now finished.
