You’re watching the 1700 series of Love of Quilting. Your host Marianne Fons and guest for this video is Ehsan Alipour who is a product designer with an interest in many areas- especially in irons and ironing.
Ehsan is a big fan of public television and excited to be featured to talk about irons. This is also his first time on public tv!
When doing patch work and using irons to make quilts, they really don’t do much actual ironing. Ironing is a horizontal motion, it gets wrinkles out of fabrics, it’s what we do to clothing, which is kind of drudgery actually. When we’re making quilts, we’re pressing which is an up and down motion.
