Looking for instructions

I've been spending (a lot) of time this afternoon going through old magazines. Why is it that we keep these things for the patterns that we like, and then can't find the right magazine to see/use those patterns?!

Within the last few years, a magazine had instructions on how to make a folding travel cutting board/ironing pad like the one in the link. I know I saved the magazine because I thought it'd make a great workshop. And I can't put my hands on it!

Anyway, I've subscribed to Fons & Porter, American Quilter, and the AQS magazine... It must be in one of those. Does anyone remember this and could you put your hands on the issue/mag name??


Here is a link that might be useful: Omnigrid foldable travel cutting/pressing station

It was in a secret stash of magazines I forgot I had in the closet! hmmmm, a sign to clean? I think not.;)

RE: Looking for instructions

Clean? When there are sewing projects to complete or start? You have learned well, grasshopper. lol
