ironing board fabric from Joann's. It's sold by the yard. I actually needed a piece about 22" x 18", so a half yard would do fine. Ironing board fabric has a heat protectant filler, but I added insulbrite the first time I made my ironing board. The ironing surface seemed a bit too "squishy" to get a really crisp press, so I left it out the second time I made a cover. I often use sheets as the backs of quilts, particularly when I can find them on sale. If I buy a sheet set, it means that I frequently have the pillow cases left over. Half of a pillowcase was perfect for the lining.

quilt for her granny I used the scraps to make the double diamond quilt. I probably have enough scraps left from this bundle to make another quilt, but I'll save that for another day. butterfly quilt from random scraps too. Honestly, the more I look at this one, the less I like it, but maybe I will like it better when it's quilted. I saw the pattern online and couldn't wait to make it. It's not that it didn't turn out well, it's just... I don't know what exactly. Sunny Side Up quilt from a kit my daughter put together in her shop. (If you don't follow @a.craftyfox on Instagram, you're missing a visual treat. Her quilts, kits, and photos are so amazing. (She definitely did not get those skills from me!). This one wasn't using up scraps exactly, but definitely scrappy.
