Hotel Sewing

I ended up making a spur of the moment trip home to see my parents. I drove partway on Sunday and stayed at a hotel. Yes, I brought a machine! After I got settled, I set up my sewing space.

I was glad for the iron and ironing board in the room.


I brought my log cabins to work on.


I have 12 blocks to finish. I got this far while watching HGTV.


I still have these pieces to add.


Thanks so much for all the recent comments. I’m so far behind and it doesn’t look like I will be catching up any time soon. Also, I may not be posting every day. Don’t worry, I’m just spending much needed time with family.

Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Enjoy your travels and your time with your family. I’ve spent some time quilting in hotel rooms. It is quite freeing actually, since there is no housework beckoning.

  14. I REALLY like your log cabin blocks – Interesting that you used a two fabric color way. Pretty Pretty! Hope things go well at home, from what I gather, your Father is ill. Wish your family the best.
