First Post

This is my first blog on blogger!  My husband, Tom, and I tavel fulltime in our 31' vintage Airstream Travel Trailer.  Home is where we park it!  Presently we are enjoying the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.

I have been a part-time quilter since the early 1990's.  Since we began our fulltime travel journey 3 years ago I had pondered how I could once again quilt.  2012 was the year I started quilting on the road!.. Bonnie Hunter is to!  Her blog, her humor, her not taking the quilt police seriously and many other attributes relite the quilting fire within me.  This year I have made 3 quilts from my little quilt studio....I will post pictures in an up coming blog.......I travel with 2 sewing 1976 Bernina 830 which I bought new in this machine.....and thanks to is cleaned up, oiled and ready to sew.

Now I am ready to continue this journey by making Bonnie's mystery quilt...."Easy Street"!  When the fabric requirements were posted I knew the lime green, purple, aquas, and grey were not colors in my fabric collection.  So I selected colors in my, red, yellow, green (my constant) and white to light cream as backgrounds. One goal is to use up my stash and complete all my UFO's.

Bonnie posted the first clue last Friday.......I plan on making a twin sized I made only half of the 182 four patches.......that is 97.....a few extras are always good.  I am looking forward to following this mystery to completion.....and thank you Bonnie for all you do!
