A Beautiful Day in Rome

A Beautiful Day in Rome.001.2015

When India and I travel, I try to document the trip with a quilt. That way, we have our mental memories and a tangible memory that we can touch.

Last summer, India and I spent a magical weekend in Rome before joining a group of friends to board a cruise ship to sail around the Mediterranean. We felt so brave. Even though we did not speak the language, we rode the subway, visited all the major tour destinations, shopped in beautiful stores and ate delicious food. A year later, we often talk and laugh about our adventures. Now this quilt will add to the memories as it hangs in our home.

Vacations are important. Did you find time to make memories this summer? If not, it’s not too late.

  1. As always your quilt is beautiful! I also had a trip to London and Paris last year but obtained Paris related fabric fabric here in the states. Haven’t done anything with it. Been very lazy about quilting, but did join a local quilt guild which has inspired me to “think” about making a DST t-shirt quilt.
