For our 1,130 mile journey to Key West, my project needed to last me a while. I made this dupioni silk flower block using fusible applique a few weeks ago while I was stuck without a sewing machine.
I originally created it for a friend's quilt show auction, but then I made another.
And then I thought, hmmmm, I like making them so much, maybe I have the start of a quilt.
I did realize that I was committed to handstitching.
Here are the two blocks that I have prepped for the trip.
(Of course, I had to stitch a bit before I packed them into my travel bag.)
I'll add to them as we travel.
There's always an iron available at hotels along the way.
I think this is the start of a great quilt. I'll keep you posted.
