The Sullivan BetterBoard is the perfect choice for an ironing station or a portable workstation. An added bonus? It folds in half – with attached handles – so it is easy to store and travel. You can even take it to retreats!
In their words:
Turn your standard ironing board into a spacious pressing surface with the BetterBoard. This overlay offers plenty of space for your biggest projects. Simply place over your existing ironing board to create a 59″ x 22″ work surface with rounded corners. The BetterBoard comes completely assembled with a smooth laminated surface and a fitted ironing cover with protective pad. It features bottom railings that are 14.875″ wide and will fit over most standard ironing boards. It is great for pressing lengths of fabric and quilt tops easily and quickly. Sit or stand while working on projects such as ironing, quilting, crafting, painting, cutting, and more. The ironing board can be lowered or raised to your desired height making the BetterBoard an ideal solution for any type of project.

I love everything that Meg Hawkey designs – and this new series is truly special!
In her words:
The animals are lining up to board the Ark! This whimsical 12 month BOM of the ark and it’s sometimes silly animals, all comes together in an enchanting 66 1/2” x 78 1/2” quilt. We’ll start with the large Ark block, and then move on to months where there will be 1 to 3 blocks given in one pattern, ending with the quilt assembly pattern. Most of the embroidery floss colors needed for the entire quilt are used in the Ark block, with a few more being added later. The embroidery on all of these blocks would be very easy for a confident beginner. The piecing in the quilt is the same… easy, but impressive looking! Instructions for cutting all of the embroidered blocks are given in the Ark pattern so you can have all of your stitching fabric ready to go!
I can’t wait to see this quilt as it emerges each month! The first patterns are due in any day!
Total honesty here – I haven’t seen the book – but I already have it on order and can’t wait to get it next month!
For those of us who have made a Dear Jane, this is the next step! The modern look and fabrics drew me in! I have now accumulated a lot of “happy” scraps in bright and interesting prints that would feel perfectly at home in this quilt. And, for shops, what a great block of the month!
The booklet is due to arrive in October so place your orders now!
With four different layouts included, everyone will be able to put their personality into the final project. How fun is that!
Kari Nichols has been a quilt store manager and pattern designer for 20 years. Her patterns have been featured in multiple publications, including McCall’s Quilting, Quilter, Quick Quilts and more. While you will find Kari’s patterns under the Mountainpeek Creations name, retirement from the retail store has given new life to her designs, and her new design company, Quilting Renditions. Just look how dramatic – but simple!

I love these wool designs by Dawn Shuck. The height is an added bonus since you can still display pictures, etc. beneath them. And the magnets make it easy to change out the designs.
These are great projects for those newbies that came from knitting or cross-stitch. These newest additions to the line are expected at the beginning of October. And, don’t forget to order your stand! From Kraft Klub, Black Round Stand# KK8864-B.
