The most unusual place I have "quilted" is in the labor room when my DIL was delivering my granddaughter 15+ years ago. The other grandmother and I were good friends, and I was teaching her to quilt. Piece, really. We got the Block of the Month kits from Joann's and were sitting there, piecing, waiting to be ejected at the time delivery actually began. But things started moving so fast, and my DIL's mom was helping by rubbing her daughter's back as my son helped with the breathing coaching, that we never did get ejected! The quilt blocks we made from that BOM series are going to be put together into a quilt for our granddaughter's wedding. Since she is 15, perhaps we had better get going if we are going to hand-quilt it!

I have taken appliqué blocks with me when taking my son to dental surgery at OSU dental clinic. It helped pass the time as he was there for 3 to 4 hours for several visits. I have also taken lap robes (that needed the bindings finished) to work and sewed on them at my lunch hour,

I have taken my sewing machine with me when we would go to a resort for a week, I was always sewing something for the kids. But now I take hand applique, or wool applique, and knitting projects. We just came back from our vacation and I made knit cotton dish rags, worked on a knit sweater for my 4 yr old and made come stamped cards! We had 2 rainy days and it was nice to have things to work on for part of the time.

I don't take my quilting with me I usually take my cross stitching-- though once when I was hand quilting a lap quilt for my daughter, I took it with me to a church business meeting.

I always take a crochet project with me on car trips. I just finished my latest afghan which took about 4 years. On the next car trip, I'll have to start another. Not into it at the moment. We are going on our vacation in another week and I don't know how I'll do without sewing. I'm not one to hand sew much so I don't think I'll be taking anything. I'll guess I'll read and take my IPAD and IPHONE. We'll be doing some geneology so have to have access to ancestry.com . So many hobbies, so little time. Carol

I've never taken a full quilt project to work on outside the home, but I've taken appliqué work on vacations and worked on it in motels while dh was napping.

I'm another one who'll bring a knitting or crocheting project with me. I don't usually have small enough quilt projects to bring with. Maybe this year when I start making my calendar quilts.

I once took a quilt with us on a camping trip - it only needed the binding stitched on. I slept under it each night we were "roughing it". Even with the sleeping bag, that extra layer of quilt felt really comfy!!!

I don't take my quilting anywhere, but I take my crochet or knitting when I travel.

Oh, take that back. When I first started quilting I acquired some "Quilt As You Go" kits in Ketchikan, AK, and did those on our cruise. I used manicure scissors and needle and thread from my emergency sewing kit. They were paper pieced and I had never done or seen it before, so the result was rather crude, but it was a lot of fun, too.

I don't take my sewing places. It is usually a space issue and I don't want to fill my traveling space with quilting things. I also have the gift of motion sickness so doing anything while traveling is not going to happen.

My sister, however, carries hers everywhere. She always has a project going.

We were camping in TN last week (blog to follow tomorrow) so I missed the weekend fun post. How about a week day fun post.

I have been known to take my quilting on vacation, plane trips, camping, and even on cruises. Where are some unusual places you have quilted?
