A wooden iron is used to press the seams of a quilt block while you are sewing it together. An example would be the log cabin block. you press the seam away from the center block as you sew the strips on, and you don't have to get up to use the big iron. Another example is sewing 4 triangle blocks together. These cedar irons work the best of any that I have found, the cedar sort of gets warm and does a wonderful job. My husband Raymond enjoys making them as no two turn out alike. You can request a narrow one or a wide one, they are 5" long and 1/2" to 3/4" wide at the top. Light, dark, or marbled. Remember, shop today, the Peculiar Country way.
We have changed the style of our wooden irons for 2017. They now have a finish coat on the top and they are 3/4" wide and 6" long. We had to raise the the price but I'm sure you will still enjoy them.
