If I am doing a queen size, I use a counter I have In my craft room.  I made an ironing pad the size of the counter, about 2x5 feet.  If lap size or smaller I just use my ironing board.  I always start pressing in the middle and work out to the edges.  Today I finished quilting a lap quilt; I had no wrinkles nor tucks on the back side.  Keep trying and you will get it.

Jan, to answer your request how to eliminate pleats on back when quilting your quilt.  I use fusible batting all the time which I buy here from CT.  First, starting in the middle, I iron the backing to the batting; I pin that about every 12 inches and flip it over.  Then iron quilt top to backing starting in the middle.  I pin this about every 6-8 inches; remove pins from back.  If I don't pin, the layers do separate while manipulating the quilt to sew.  I rarely get a pleat on back side when I do it this way.  Good luck.

From one Jan to another!  :)  If you'd have asked me about seamless arcs when I was piecing mine, I'd have said seamless was the way to go!  :D  Thanks for your nice comment.

I went to the Golden Thimble website but did not find the quilt barn BOM.  Do you still have that pattern or know where I can get it?

The car seat organizer pattern I used was Simplicity 2916.  There are several different options you can do with the pattern.

Jan I am not sure about the "king cake" that you saw but I think it was a giant "cinnamon bun" pincushion that I made as a joke for a girl in Ok. I do love king cakes but do not have a picture of one. I have been doing some quilting for my great grandies for Christmas and have been staying busy. It is not very cool in South Louisiana but I can always set the A.C. to an appropriate temp to make it cooler and then do my quilting.

Jan, Thanks for leaving a comment on the blog about me switching machines. I had not intended to purchase an 830. I took DH with me when I decided to go look at machines and his attitude is that you don't buy a sewing machine very often so why not get all the bells and whistles. I think once I master all the buttons and screens I'll feel more comfortable. I just haven't had much time to play with it between work and other family commitments.
