A New Quilting Notion?


Well! This is absolutely the last thing I ever expected to see at a quilt shop! I was cruising a favorite website this evening and came across a logo for Quilt Dash, which is some kind of online shop hop sponsored by Cotton Spice. There were less than 30 sites listed, so I thought it might be fun to play since I'd never done a shop hop before.

This ironing board cover is the featured product at the Global Quilt Shop website. You can actually choose from not one, but three different covers. Know what else? When you iron over the towel, it disappears. Yes, it disappears. I have no idea what kind of quilt shop this is--there's no fabric for sale except a few batik panels, and the rest of their offerings are... just plain strange. I didn't quite know what to make of it. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, now that I'm retired!
Need a new ironing board cover? Anyone?

Well, I guess that could encourage you to press every seam!

Now, is that ironing board cover for the quilter who has everything or what? Personally, I would rather spend my money on fabric.......must be old age speaking!

Congratulations on your retirement. I know it will take some adjustment but boy will you have time to quilt and knit and blog and look for new ironing board covers!

So does this mean you'll have the best-pressed seams in the state?

You should send that in to Mark Lipinsky, of Quilter's Home. He'd love it!

Stephanie is right! He would love it!! That is a hoot! Now, go look at my blog!!

That is just too funny! and weird! I know that quilters have the best sense of humour, and fun, but, well, yes, a bit odd.

Cheers!

Oh gosh. I bet more women would iron with a cover like this one. I'd probably burn my clothes :) I need a new ironing board cover, but.....
