Open Line Friday–Do You Have a “Travel Project”?

Hand Dyed Miniature Hexie Quilt First, I want to thank you for all your kind words and encouragement about my new column: My Line with Lori Kennedy in American Quilter Magazine.   Read more HERE.  To answer your questions:  Yes, I will continue blogging–I have way too much I want to say to limit myself to six times per year!   And, I agree-my next project is THE BOOK!  (But first…two college graduations, a confirmation, a few showers, and A WEDDING in May!)  Then I will buckle down and work on THE BOOK.

Hand Dyed Miniature Hexie Quilt I know many of you love hexies.  My sisters inspired me to start this mini hexie project.  It’s small enough to carry all the necessary supplies and fabric in a stationery box.  I like to work on it during long car rides.  I used to bring a Travel Project wherever I knew I’d be waiting for long periods of time–sport practices for the kids, air travel, etc. but I always found it awkward to pull out my sewing.

While I love the idea of using those little bits of time to work on my projects, my Travel Project is only for long car rides.

What about YOU?  Do you have a Travel Project?  What projects do you think best for travel?   Do you think it’s awkward to quilt in public?

I’d love to hear…
