    Default Re: Wool Ironing Mats

    I'm trying to order one from ecorug.com, got as far as going through PayPal, but now the site won't let me place the order. I have a call in to ecorug. I definitely want to purchase this. I have been using my wool blanket on my ironing board and it's worked well, but I think the pad will work better. Thanks for the tip.

    I was able to order one but maybe their site has been inundated with quilters now? Keep trying!

    If I remember correctly, I either cut it with a utility scissors or a utility knife.

    Some people have complained about the smell. Mine did too for awhile, but I grew up on a farm and did not find it offensive.

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I am having a problem signing onto the forum from home; I signed in at work today with no problem. I quilted it Saturday and am sewing the binding on now. It wasn't too bad, but I was not as careful as I should have been with the bias edges because some of my squares were a little wonky. However, after piecing it all together, putting on the border and quilting it, I am very satisfied with how it turned out. Even my sashing strips matched up which really surprised me! I have another jelly roll and am probably going to make another one. I admire you for making one using the 2.5 inch squares; I don't think I would have made one that way. However, I found Jenny's way pretty easy and fun and I rarely make the same quilt twice, but I really like how this one turned out and how it looks. It was fun to make Let me know if you make one Jenny's way. Have fun if you do!
