Board A Ship – Quilt Pattern

I traveled by a ship only once to get to Orkney, Scotland from the northernmost post on the mainland.  It was not a cruise ship, just a passenger and cargo ship so the amenities were pretty minimum.  We were there in midst of winter, and it felt like we were going on an arctic expedition.  So I made a ship quilt pattern, keeping that experience in mind.

It was pretty late yesterday when started working on this one and I seriously didn’t think I would finish it.  But as I started sewing and it started taking shape, I wanted to see the finished block.  So here it is.  I really like the dark red fabric I used for the the ship.  It has a old metal feel to it.

Board A Ship quilt pattern is available at Craftsy and Etsy of course.

Cab Or Car – Quilt Pattern

Depending on which city you find yourself in, it really matters whether we are to take a cab or rent a car.  This cab quilt pattern one can be easily converted to a car quilt pattern, so two patterns in one, a cab and a car.  The cloth I used is actually yellow, but my scanner thought it’s more orange!  This one is also super easy to make.

Cab Or Car quilt pattern is available at Craftsy and Etsy as well.

Fly On A Plane – Quilt Pattern

I love the excitement of being at the airport before a trip. Yesterday I finished testing Fly On A Plane, another super easy quilt pattern in the travel series.  You could make the plane bi-color like I did, or with just a simple single color.  You could also make the smaller wings with a different color than the larger wings.  I had to remember to cut the fabric large enough to cover each part while I was sewing.  It was really a fun one to make.

Fly On A Plane quilt pattern is also available at my Craftsy and Etsy stores.

Ride The Bus – Quilt Pattern

I can’t imagine my life without traveling.  It has been part of my life since I was a little kid.  There is so much to see out there, so much to experience!

The idea for creating a travel quilt came to me one night while I was flipping through a guide book for a trip.  I thought wouldn’t it be nice to make quilt with the signs that we see at the airports, stations, national parks etc during our travel.

Ride The Bus is the first quilt pattern in the series, available from my Craftsy and Etsy stores.  More to come very soon!
