Not to be confused with Really Random Thursday. Ha...
I had no sooner gotten my block tutorial posted as the last stop on Amy's Virtual Quilting Bee
than Sandy from Upstairs Hobby Room posted this picture. Seriously. I love her version so much, and it was such fun to see the block in a different colorway. She used Kona Amber (dark), Butterscotch (medium) and Champagne (light) in her block.
masterpiece. I would love to give a full reveal now but I'm tempted to wait until Bloggers Quilt Festival. Unless I really can't stand it a minute longer and show you the whole thing first, and then again at the end of the month.
And of course it started leaking the other day. I really like to press with steam, so the only choice is to keep the iron dry (which I know many of you do) and use a spray bottle, or purchase a new iron and start from scratch. I bought this one the other night based on the recommendation of my friend, Deborah.
So my question is: what iron do you use? What do you love/dislike about it? Are there any tricks for increasing the longevity of an iron, like draining the water each and every time you are done? Inquiring minds want to know.
