Some progress was made in the sewing room this weekend! Woo to the Hoo!!
There was some beautiful Kona Snow sitting on my cutting table that needed to be starched, pressed and cut so I could finish my Grungy Windows quilt top. There was a great big pressing board that had stains from previous pressings and starch remains all over it. I did not want to put my white fabric on that, so I found this tutorial and made myself an ironing board cover. Start to finish it was only about an hour and a half to make. And THEN I pressed my fabric and finished my Grungy Windows quilt top!
Instead of a throw size it is now a twin size quilt, measuring 63″ x 84″. Very happy with how it looks. Now to quilt it! I hope to get a backing made for it this weekend. I also have my 2014 Modern InstaBee blocks that need to be trimmed and sewn into a top. I’d like to get that assembled this weekend too.
This week’s To-Do list:
- Make Backing for Grungy Windows quilt top
- Sew InstaBee Blocks into a quilt top.
- Continue with the c25k program. Do the best you can and be satisfied with that!!!

Your Grungy windows top looks fantastic! I love it! I’m going to have to check out that ironing board tutorial because my current cover is NASTY!
Thanks! That ironing board cover was a breeze to make. I didn’t use elastic though, I just took the cord out of my old cover (from before the conversion to the pressing board), and used that. It worked fine, so I’m glad I didn’t have to run out and buy elastic (I’m a quilter, for crying out loud!!) 😉
Nice Grungy Windows! Did you like working with the Kona Snow fabric? I just ordered some from Craftsy. Wish I had a larger ironing service, great that you found a tut to recover yours!
Thanks, Sharon! I love Kona Snow. It’s my go-to fabric for “white” (but not bright white) backgrounds. Not too off-white, and not glaring white. I think it’s perfect!
