This is a little tool I made which saves you getting up all the time to iron pierced blocks together. Which means that you can pierce blocks together more quickly.
I know that some quilters have an iron right next to their sewing machine but my ironing board is on the other side of my sewing room, which means that I would pierce several pieces, then get up and iron them, them pierce some more etc. With this little tool I remove that extra step which makes building quilting blocks a whole lot quicker. Might not make me as fit perhaps, but that’s another story.
In the video I mention that I use doweling which you can buy from a hardware store, the minimum length of doweling that you can buy will make several of these tools, so you can make some for your quilting friends as well. The circumference of the doweling doesn’t matter, that’s a personal choice. You might find that you have some spare pieces floating around, I use doweling to hang quilts and I always seem to have a piece left over.
