It is wonderful to find a product that is useful, very well made and solves a problem. TheQuiltMate is a completely different type of ironing pad - something I think quilters could get really excited about. I have teamed up with TheQuiltMate to be able to offer you a discount code, a giveaway and to share my honest thoughts on their product. I will tell you straight away that it's really great!

"TheQuiltMate was designed to be used virtually anywhere!  No more bulky ironing board to setup or move around.  No more slippery ironing pad that never stays in one place as you iron.  No longer the inconvenience of not having the right ironing surface available wherever you are.  TheQuiltMate ironing pad was made to be easy-to-use and portable, with a firm surface that stays put while you iron.  TheQuiltMate is designed to be used on most any surface safely, and wherever you may need to iron.  The .7mm 100% silicone backing gives a unique, firm, non-slip ironing experience."  

My package of two mats arrived and in truth I was initially a little underwhelmed. I love the floral design on the mini pad but I thought the packaging looked slightly generic. Well that was a lesson in not judging an ironing pad by the cover! As soon as I opened it I could feel the quality. These aren't flimsy ironing mats that I've used in the past. The cushioning is exceptional and what really sets TheQuiltMate apart is the silicone backing. As soon as you put it down you can't easily move it, it's not going to slide around as you iron or press. That is a big deal! The surface you place it on is protected and you are safe in the knowledge that the pad will stay put.

I've had mine for a couple of weeks, enough time for me to put it to work. I can tell you that it has made life a lot easier. We have a small galley kitchen and not having to get the ironing board out to press seams, fat quarters or a block has been brilliant (it also means other people can move about in the kitchen!). I have used steam from the iron, wet the mat and done a lot of pressing. TheQuiltMate is brilliant, it even didn't leave dampness underneath when using steam, which other mats have. I am really impressed. The quality of the pads is so good, I know they are going to last a long time. The mini is a very handy size and the medium one is really pretty big at 25" x 17", so useful!
