I have always been ready to travel when the opportunity arises. Quilting and travel seem to fit together fine. So I am a quilter on the road again.

The hubby and I took a few days off to escape north to see my sister, her family, and any other family who showed up in MN. The plan was to make the drive each way a two day trip with overnights in the Wisconsin Dells.

Peaceful, quiet time…

The other part of the plan was simply to relax on the lake, enjoy no schedule, and have a great visit. The trip was great and the plans worked out fine.

Quilting by the lake

I am still dealing with a problem shoulder so chose a small project that is very mobile. It is also great to just pick up, work on, and put down. No stress.

All the fabric pieces in the small project bag was cut out prior to the trip. The bag also had needles, thread, and small scissors. This makes for keeping everything together, and does not take up much room in the suitcase.

Fabric shopping to complete the trip

On the return trip, we made a stop in Hutchinson, MN. Hubby headed for the DQ down the block while I did a quick shopping spree at the wonderful store “Quilt Haven on Main”. If you are up that way, make time to stop at this fun fabric store.

Ok, I really don’t need any fabric, but I picked up a few pieces anyway.

Travel, peace and quiet, and quilting can go hand in hand. If you have a chance to do so please take the time away from your regular life and just enjoy. Pick a project that travels easy and work on it while relaxing.

Happy quilting.

Happy quilting. Make today amazing.

  1. I’m really love your quilting site. I recently found this blog and don’t want to miss any posts so subscribed. Thanks for all the great ideas.

  2. You have one of the best quilt blogs on the internet. Thank you for sharing.

    English paper piecing is a travel friendly way to keep working on a quilt project. I have been working with diamonds that are paper pieced. It is a slow project since I don’t travel much anymore.

    1. I am so glad you are enjoying this quilt blog.

      I like English paper piecing and it is travel friendly. Um…paper pieced diamonds…sounds like something I should try. Not right now though since I am really trying to clean out the UFOs.

      Happy quilting.

  3. Your trip looks very pretty and also relaxing – with your job this is a necessity.

    Thank you for reminding the rest of us that a few days of relaxation is good for all quilters.

    1. The trip was relaxing. Yes, we all need a few days away to recharge. In today’s world, it is so easy to really get stressed out. If each of us takes a little time away we make better employees, spouses, parents, friends and quilters.
