Very nice! None of my quilts are perfect. I believe in the Amish way: they make sure there's a flaw in every quilt "because only God is perfect". It's my mantra!

Yes, do post pictures. I love to see pictures! They are inspiring.

Hello all quilters!
Mary, beautiful quilt...love the vibrant colors. I've been away from quilting too long and was thinking why not gear up with something new for our new Airstream. Found some yardage of print from several years ago but "new" to me....Camp Sur.Click image for larger version

The International Quilt Study Museum at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln is only 7 miles from Camp Away in Lincoln NE. Ask me how I know!

Are any of you going to Alumpalooza 5? This is our maiden voyage into camping and Airstreaming and thought it would be a good place to start. Would love to meet up with fellow quilters..now that I am not new to!

Hi all, we bought a few tons on stone product today after several weeks of searching for a retaining wall to support our new driveway extension for our Flying Cloud. Hope our order will next week so we can begging the stone retention wall around the driveway & rake the disturbed area before we bring her home early June.

We also need to run electric shore power to the site to replenish the batteries & get ready for our homecoming. We've got tons of work to get done before then. There will still be plenty of time to shop for essentials before our first camping adventures & may need to hold off on quilting project for now but will update you later.

Sounds like you have enough to keep you busy!
I was going to make the quilt for the second twin bed, but it may wait until fall - or at least rainy days.
The garden has been calling me :-)


Enjoy all the preparations!
:-!
Mary

Greetings from a newbie. Just picked up the AS two weeks ago (2008 31' Classic) and will head out on our inaugural trip next weekend. No quilting on the first trip but hope to have my machine and projects with me on trip #2.

For all of you experienced road quilters - what kind of sewing machine do you use? My old machine is a 1974 Pfaff. Big and heavy. I'm going to be looking for a lighter, sturdy machine to use.

I'd also welcome any tips and tricks you've gleaned for sewing on the road.

I can't wait to get started!!!

I bought a refurbished 1938 Singer Featherweight for travel. It's small, sews beautifully for straight stitching/piecing, and stores in a small space under my dinette seat. It's mechanical so I can fix any problems on the road, unlike my big electronic at home. Feels like I'm sewing on a toy sometimes.... I have a cutting mat stored under the mattress of the bed (stays flat). I have a small sewing case that was my moms (still smells like her perfume) for my pins, needles, scissors, etc. and a small travel iron with a pressing mat I made. I've only hauled it all out once so far this summer, but it seems to work out just fine for me for piecing and cutting.

Sewing while traveling

I also use a Singer Featherweight. Small but substantial, sews beautifully for quilting, mechanical so I can do all maintenance myself. I use a cutting-board/ironing mat combination that I purchased at a fabric store years ago, one side is for cutting, the other is padded for ironing. That easily stores behind the couch and the Featherweight in its case goes under the bed. Easy-peasy. on beautiful days when I feel like sewing, I run an extension cord to the picnic table and sew outside so that I can both sew and enjoy nature. Life doesn't get much better than that!

Thanks for the advice! All good ideas to get me started. We're heading out on Friday for our 1st time. I wanted to bring sewing along and hubby thought perhaps wait until the 2nd outing. That's OK. Gives me time to assemble what I will need once we start using the AS more often. For the time being it will be weekends only. At some point in the next year or two we will hit the road for long trips.

I have used a couple different travel machines. All in portable plastic cases. My machines always ride in the truck as I believe the trailer would be too bouncy for them.

Most of the time they stay home unless we are going on a week or longer trip with a few days of downtime in the middle. Usually I bring knitting. Very portable and won't get damaged.
