We have pretty much unearthed all the "gadget" things I need for sewing except I could not find my Best Press spray bottle. I am sure I will find it, I just need it now! So I went to my local quilt store, Quilt N Stitch to get some. Bingo they even had the "flavor" I like.
I have been thinking a lot about pressing and ironing lately...go figure. Anyways recently on a blog (sorry I can't remember which one) there was a great simple description of both...ironing: the iron moves on the fabric...pressing...iron is lifted up and down on fabric. (Very simplistic for my point).
I believe I am neither of these when I use the iron for quilting....I "prion". Yes this is a new word just for us that press and iron their blocks. I maybe shouldn't admit this, but I do move the iron when pressing/ironing 1/2 square triangles open or seams to one side. I don't iron hard to where the fabric is stretched, but I do move the iron to help me put the seam or fabric in the direction it needs to go. I also press...like setting the seam, pressing a block or seam...so I have decided for all of us who do not iron or press that we are "PRIONERS" and proud of it. Are you one?
