Quilting Motifs.......While Traveling

Autumn in Idaho

Click Images to Enlarge:

Once in awhile Brad manages to get the camera out of my hands.
He took this incredible photo in Idaho last fall.

He prefers to be behind the wheel when we travel,
so this is what I do:

Practice Quilting Motifs at 55 mph

Just lift up the plastic to erase,
then keep drawing more...

Drawing out your quilting motifs like this really helps.
It mentally prepares you, so that when you get on the sewing machine your brain and your hands are ready to work together.

Give it a Try !

Those oldies (now new) are great, aren't they? That's a nice size for traveling.

I use a kids "MagnaDoodle" -- similar principle. I keep it next to the TV, and play, draw, erase, to imprint the designs in my brain. 8-))
