Do you love to paper piece?

I absolutely LOVE to paper piece!!!

And lately I have been working on some paper pieced blocks.  But it wasn't until the last couple of weeks I started using something I had purchased months ago.  Can you guess what it is? 

It is one of these--the Hobbico Sealing Iron!

I have it sitting on a snack tray table beside my machine.  No more getting up to use the iron that sits on my ironing board.  Of course I use with one of those reversible cutting/ironing mats that you get at Walmart.  But I have to tell you, this iron is handy.  Gets super hot!  Is so much lighter than my regular iron!  Takes up very little space!  And best of all saves me so many steps!  I heard it is also great for applique.

So if you are a paper piecer like me you might want to check into it.  I know Kelly over at I Have a Notion carries them as well as the Accuquilt GO that have become all the rage.  I haven't been purchasing fabric lately but I do enjoy going over to IHAN and checking out all the great gadgets.  Great prices and great service.  Let her and her co-workers know I sent ya!

And no I am not affiliated!  Just found her website great to order from!

Hope you are having a great day!

I have actually been wondering how well it worked. It is nice to read a review on it.

I have one of these and yes, it gets dangerously HOT. It came with a little stand, but I'd rather set it in a ceramic mug on a hotpad or something. It tends to move around easily and I am always afraid I am going to either scorch something or start a fire! Seems it is hard to find a hot iron, doesn't it?

Ms. Clueless here...I have no idea what paper piecing is...and I am an absolute iron-killer! I'm on my 4th iron in two years, and three of those were Rowentas! I don't know why I can't keep an iron alive! :o(
