Sew Out Loud Quilt Along - Press On!

Today it is my turn to share my block design for Sew Out Loud!!
My block is called 'Press on!' and is all about the trusty old iron. I quite enjoy ironing as part of the sewing process but when it comes to ironing the laundry it is one of my least favourite chores. Funny how that works, I wonder if I had an iron like this it would change the way I feel ;)

Press on!
 I have included templates for freezer paper piecing or foundation paper piecing. You can download the pattern here

I really enjoy being part of this sew along and seeing all the wonderful blocks you all have been making! You can add your blocks to our Flickr group here
And don't forget there will be a block design contest soon with some fab prizes, so get those thinking caps on ladies.
I am excited to see what you all will come up with!!
