Quilt Borders, Quilting tools, RV Quilting, Travel quilting

It’s a great day to quilt..

I had a full day to spend on quilting yesterday. Since it was a warm and sunny Florida day, I set up my sewing macautumn-pennieshine outside the camper. While my husband was kayaking and taking pictures on the Turner River, I completed two quilt tops.

The  Autumn Pennies table topper last week was completed last week.(January 28 post).  From Kim Diehl’s book Simple Seasons, the pattern suggested black fabric for the borders.  Instead I chose a rust and gold leaf print on a black background.   I think that the print accentuates Fall even more.  (My favorite season!


Since we’ve been camping in Big Cypress , I’ve added Churn and Dash borders to the 12 monthly and center embroidered blocks of the Seasons sampler (February 1 post) . After auditioning two different border fabrics on my portable design wall, I chose the fabric on the right and added borders and embroidered corner squares. Now seasonsI’m not sure how to quilt it. Any ideas?

What a great day!

Lucia, Quilting from the Road!

    Hope you don’t mind, Lisa told me about your retirement! Congratulations! I think it is wonderful. You and Tom, minus the bad rain storm, sound and look like you are having a wonderful time. Your quilts are beautiful. You will certainly be ready for the quilt show next year.
    Enjoy your journey. Safe travel and see you……..??????

      Mind? I’m just happy that you got on the blog and left the comment. I am enjoying myself and getting a few UFO’s completed. If I don’t, I’ll have to move to a bigger house just to store the UFO’s! We’ll be back in Syracuse at the end of the month and will see you at the March meeting, if not sooner.
