Moving is stressful. Leaving a house after 35 years is stressful. The actual moving process is stressful. Lining up proper documentation is stressful. None of this is distress - it’s all eustress. Nevertheless it’s stress. So of course I have to sew.

Sewing to keep calm…
The fabrics from Ben's quilt - Japanese linen canvas - do not play well with other cottons, so these are the leftovers. This Trip around the World pattern is one of my favorites and one I do on automatic pilot. It’s hard to see the middle navy border next to the brown, but you work with what you have, right?
I started this yesterday with a group of fabrics that belong together, leftover from other projects. I’ll have to see what I have left for the borders. Normally these small blocks are made from 5.5” strips. But this quilt will be smaller. I was working with fat quarters and had to drop down to 5” strips.
The top quilt is on the basting tables. And I’ll put borders in this today.
