MisterStitches and I recently took a road trip to Ashland, Oregon to attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It is a full day of driving, mostly straight highways. So I took along a project to keep my hands busy.
I wanted to do some hand quilting, so I found some light blue fabric at my LQS, The Loft. After washing and ironing, I sandwiched it with some backing fabric that I had in my stash. I decided to hand quilt around the edges of the leaves on the fabric.
I chose this cute variegated thread that I already had on hand for the quilting.
I really enjoy hand quilting. It is so relaxing and peaceful to me. (Except when I poke myself with the needle!)
This is the backing fabric that I chose. The stitches hardly show on it.
And of course, I used my trusty portable sewing station that I could attach to the car window. It is so handy!
