Default ironing board cover

Okay - sigh.........
I am tired of buying a new ironing board cover at WalMart every 3 or 4
months. I need one that will serve a QUILTER! What have you guys found,
and where, that you liked and that lasted?

I made my own

from good quality, but cheap cotton and I used my usual batting underneath -
it can take anything a quilt can

I got something from the county fair 2 years ago. Holds more heat so I can
use a lower level on my iron. Love it. Washable and LASTS!

I like the fiberglass ones I buy at quilt shows. You can, however,
order them online now.

I have one on my regular ironing board, one on my big board and a
rectangle pad that I take to classes and sit on a table.

Looks good so far!

Wears really well. The seam binding doesn't rip off the cover when you
try to pull the string tight around the ironing board. Ink from paper
piecing foundations, sticky stuff from fusibles and any other grunge
that's touched it all washes right off, no scrubbing/stain
remover/incatations required.

It reflects the heat from the iron. So a not so hot iron works better
than it should.

The cover on my regular ironing board - used for quilting until I got
the big board last month, and for all clothing, and yes, I am one of
those crazy people who irons the laundry every week - has lasted 4 years
now. It does have a worn spot on the side that I patched with a double
layer of heavy muslin.

The con is that it's slippery. A slinky blouse placed on it will
instantly slide to the floor. It took some getting used to so that
clothing stayed put. I don't really have that problem with fabric and,
the blocks I sew generally don't hang over the side of the board anyway.

I'm not sure. I use the ironing board cover that came with the iron.
Then I cover it with a very ordinary towel. I like the sink-in padding
that the towel gives me. Every now and then, I wash the towel.
