Commemorate Your Summer Trip with a Quilt

My daughter India and I love to travel as often as we can. We always take a spring break cruise, and I try to commemorate each cruise with a quilt. Shown here is Caribbean Rock, our 2006 commemorative quilt.

In 2006, we traveled on an Italian cruise ship called Costa Mediterranea. Our itinerary included stops in Key West, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Ocho Rios. Being a relatively new teenager, at each port-of-call India wanted to find a Hard Rock Cafe to purchase a tee shirt. Aboard ship, India hung out with new found friends and ate lots of ice cream and pizza. I spent time sun bathing, reading and quilting on deck. Most of the time we go our separate ways on cruises, except for formal dinner and shore excursions. However, this cruise we took an Italian class together. It’s pretty cool when a teenager is willing to take a class with Mom.
Summer is traditional travel time, and I hope you have something wonderful planned. Consider documenting your trip with a quilt.

Bon Voyage!
