A wooden clapper pressing board is a board that is used right after steam-pressing a seam. It simply is used like an iron but sets the seam professionally without any shine to fabric. Sadly I found it after I have sewn and quilted most of this wool log cabin lap robe. I loved the rich look of the wool in this lap robe, but the thickness of the wools made for a very "primitive-looking" quilt, as I could not get the seams to press flat.
About two thirds of the way through this project my cat, Zelda, tested her teeth on the back of this lap robe. "Need is the mother of invention", I have learned too well, and so this wool quilt block will be sewn on the back to cover the tiny spots that will be mended. It properly credits Zelda and me for this log cabin wool lap throw.
(This wool log cabin lap throw will be for sale when it is completed. It is going to be toasty warm. It is rich in color, and quilted primitively using Sashiko thread. This is a course Japanese quilting thread that is both decorative and durable. Anyone interested in potentially purchasing this lap throw, please contact me. Of course Zeldie added much to its value with her picture on the back!)
