  • Machine-sew the binding to the front of several quilts prior to your trip, and then use the time in the car to hand-sew the binding to the backs.
  • Try hand-quilting a small project (or tackle a larger project if you are ambitious).

  • Many quilters find hand-stitching to be therapeutic, which helps alleviate any stress that might arise on a long drive.
