Getting Road Ready

DSCN3995 (800x600)

Road trip coming up in the future and in this case that means 8+ hours on the road.

I can only hand sew in small spurts, but I’ll take what I can get to pass the time and enjoy my passion as well.

In order to get ready, I used left over fabrics from this project (still in the making):

Dresden Plate Baby Quilt

To cut  2 inch squares using the June Taylor Shape Cut ruler:

Dresen PlateThe ruler has open groves every 1/2 inch for your rotary cutter to slide into to cut. You can layer to cut many at once, my fabrics are 4 deep.

The result is quick and easy squares/strips the desired size:

Dresen Plate

The above cuts along with this:

Dresen PlateWill get packed into here:

Travel PursesThis has 5 pockets, 3 of them zippered and is a great little tote for small projects.

I will also be bringing this in case (when) my ADD kicks in:

Winter Wonderland

And when I need to divert my attention elsewhere, I have this and a Craftsy class on tatting to watch:

Do you have portable projects?

My daughter and family just moved, and we are going to help them settle in. She said I wouldn’t need my sewing machine.

Now what do you think? Should I bring it? 🙂

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie

    If you have room, of course! Maybe She changes her mind and asks you to sew some curtains for her! 🙂 Have a safe trip whenever you leave and drive carefully wherever you go! 🙂

  • Jaye

    Bring the machine or plan to buy her one! LOL!

    For what do you use the strips? The hexies?
