My Traveling Quilt

This is my traveling quilt. I made it from a American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine pattern. It is a really lovely quilt, although not quite as color balanced as I'd like. I hand quilted it in a fan design--the first time I ever attempted that particular pattern and I'm hooked! I love it. Very easy and so nice looking. But!!! Big BUT--on two of the star blocks, my 'air erasable' marking pen did not disappear like it should have. I have done everything I know to do and it is unfortunately a permanent part of my quilt. So, I've been trying to find a different brand of air erasable quilt and in the mean-time I'm using a white pencil from the art store. The permanent marks are why this quilt has become my traveling quilt. No big trauma if it gets something spilled on it!! I have to have a traveling quilt because I freeze with air conditioning and my husband and I are polar opposites when it comes to compromising on a comfortable temperature.:)


  1. What a beautiful quilt -- hand quilted? Wow! I've hand quilted one quilt in my quilting history. Now I try and do everything possible on the machine.
    ;) I have thread on my floor, couch and myself!

  2. I wonder what a traveling quilt means. It is very pretty and I like the choice of colors. Your writing is very nice too.

  3. The traveling quilt is the current quilt of mine that goes where I go--it keeps me warm and gives me all the comfort of home.:)
