    Quilting project for holiday travel

    We will be taking a 12 hour road trip and I need a quilting project that I can do in the car... Any suggestions?

    Applique, sew down the curves on Cathedral Windows blocks, Grandmothers Flower Garden flowers, or sew down the binding on a quilt. Of course they all need some kind of prep so they are ready to go. Do you knit or crochet? That would be a good project for a car trip too.

    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

      I really enjoyed having 10 inch blocks and 7.5 inch Dresden blades the last time I traveled. I plan to make a "handmade" quilt and I was able to put all the fan blades together and have them ready to applique to their blocks while I traveled. It was fun, and easy, so I would suggest this as a travel project. You can see a photo of my Dresden choices on my blog...

      Don't know how much time you have to prepare the stuff, so maybe a pinwheel project. You could make pinwheels while you travel and then, put them together when you have the number you choose. I've learned that it takes a lot to make a big project! Visiting a home last week, I saw one of these quilts on the guest bed and there were 1,762 of them put together, so I think that would take all 12 hours!
      Have a great trip and enjoy your road partners! Debi

        I really don't have much to add to the list of projects you could take along. Oh, but are you interested in hexagons?? That would be a great take along project and not a ton of prep work would be needed, just making your templates--which could be printed off of the computer or better yet, the plastic ones at JoAnn's purchased with a coupon are very reasonably priced--and cut squares of fabric (or use up your scrap pile!). Making yo-yo's for a project would be fun too!
