I’ve been doing my quilting for the last seven years in my one-bedroom apartment. Along one wall of the bedroom are a bookshelf for supplies, my excellent Brother machine in a custom extended SewEZ table and a sturdy steel table for cutting and pressing.

The problem has been the ironing pad on the table, which slips around and has curled-up edges., very annoying.

So I was thrilled to learn about a new product from Lucy Brennan at Charm about You. It is the QuiltMate silicone-backed ironing pad, which sticks firmly to the table surface. It comes in three sizes, a small one for pressing blocks or touch-ups, the medium, which I ordered, and the large, not yet available.

I ordered the medium three days ago from QuiltMate.com and it arrived this morning. As you can see, it is smaller, but still works very well for pressing WOF strips and my flimsy in progress.

I may order the large mat when it becomes available. Meanwhile, I can recommend it for anyone who needs a stable pressing surface. Thank you, Lucy.

I am one very happy quilter today and hope you all have had a good Quilting week.

  1. At first I thought you were going to say you had a new roommate who quilts! I think that’s the only kind of roomie I could tolerate at this point in my life, ha!

    Interesting product. Do you think you could use it on top of a cutting mat? My little ironing board, which has 4″ tall feet, sits on top of my rotary mat and is a pain to move when I need to cut. This looks much lighter and easier to store.


  2. I don’t think I ever saw this particular product. But I did get something similar at Aldi that I love, though I don’t think mine is as large as yours. It’s always a happy day when you order an item and it lives up to your expectations.
