Investing in a Wool Pressing Mat
When I first started quilting, my amazing husband built me a pressing board. It was a piece of wood with a layer of foil to reflect the heat back, covered with three layers of batting, and then topped with fabric that we stapled around the back of the board. I have three of them in different sizes and use them for very different reasons. One I take on retreats, one I use for pressing backing and full quilts, and a medium one I leave up all the time next to my sewing machine. I loved them. I thought they were the bomdiggidy, until I first used a wool pressing mat.
