Good Morning, Quilters!
As I was packing up to visit my new grandson in St. Louis, I realized I didn’t have any easy, totable quilting projects!
Now all of YOU know what a crisis that is!!
I grabbed a charm pack of Boundless pre-cuts (5 x 5 inches)…and quickly stitched a background.

I added a charm pack of warm colors to my bag and, voila!-–instant quilt project, ready to travel!
Not sure where I’m going with this…but it’s coming along swimmingly!
What about YOU? Do YOU have a stash of pre-cuts?
My new favorite, “must-have” supply...(‘cuz I’d rather be quilting than cutting!)

create a fabric, thread, ruler hoarder, warm her and her family for a lifetime.”—LCK

Very cute! Did you needle turn applique the the fish while traveling? Good for a little boy.
Yes. I always needle turn.
Any chance of getting a neat little tutorial on needle turn at some point in the future? I’ve always wanted to learn how to do it, but so far haven’t seen one that gives me the confidence to try.
I’d love to do a tutorial on needle turn. I’ve tried several methods and always come back to needle turn.
I too would love a tutorial from you on NT appliqué.
I am anxious to see how you quilt this. It should be fun. I like your color palette.
Yes, I have all sorts of precut “stuff” but never quite know what to do with them. Thanks for this great idea.

I love the fish- very creative and I know it will be a great project whatever you make it into! Whenever I am going away, the first thing I pack/plan is my project(s)…..I can spend hours packing those and then throw clothes, toiletries, etc. together in minutes! I do recognize how crazy that is but that’s the ethos of a quilter…in my opinion. I don’t think I am alone-someone else was recently talking about a similar issue, taking hours to pack many things for a vacation and then spending minutes on them :). This might be an interesting topic to hear from others about – how/what do you pack for vacation?
Let’s add it to our Open Line Friday!
would love to see a bigger view of this little quilt……PLEASE?????
I, too pack hand work first before a trip. However, we are going camping for a couple of days this week, so I will stick to hiking and reading! Happy summer, my friends!
I also would really appreciate a tutorial on needle turn appliqué; your fish are just beautiful.
I will be interested in hearing how much time you actually spent working on the project. I recently took a vacation that involved a lot of plain, train and automobile travel. I spent an entire evening getting everything packaged up so it would be easy to pull out and work on. During that 2 week vacation, I spent a total of 2 hours working on my projects. Last week, I was reading a blog from a knitting store in town. She recently had a similar experience, spending a lot of time getting organized, then knitting a total of 10 rows. I wonder how many of us spend lots of time preparing and very little time working on the project.
