Like many of us, I haven’t been doing much traveling but I still couldn’t resist signing up for See Ya Later, Alligator! My very favorite souvenirs from any trip are photographs and, you probably guessed it, fabric!
Recently, I completed a quilt with special memories embedded in every thread. This was a panel that Phil and I found when we traveled to California. My school has Heron in the name and of course, I needed it as soon I saw it. My friend, Margot, gifted me with a beautiful stack of fabrics that worked perfectly and this was the result.
I quilted it with wavy watery lines for most of the background and then added quilting to the heron.
I’m pretty pleased with how it came out!
Then, I had another opportunity to use another fabric with travel memories. My younger daughter requested a baby quilt for a co-worker and the shower was themed as “turtle.” I knew there were turtle fabrics from a trip to Hawaii in BC (before covid.)
This was my fabric pull from my stash
I did get a few adventures in recently. I had a little fun trip to the beach with friends this weekend. And, I took my new fold-up kayak out recently, too.
