    Tons of ideas! Thanks!
    I use the baby clippers (no file on them) because they are small and usually stay sharper than regular clippers. Plus, when my family is in need of nail clippers, they leave the baby ones alone. :)

    It's also called "Lap Quilting" and Georgia Bonesteel wrote several books and had a television show about it. Look in your public library.

    I've got a couple blocks that I made (paper pieced) that I'm trying to work on, but as of yet, they are still sitting on the ironing board

    When I take "illegals" such as scissors, needles (lighter :oops: ), I put all the items in my makeup case which I keep in my oversized purse. I put them through the scanner and have never been asked to take them out by security. Once on the plane, I just do my work.

    I hadn't heard that - I usually cross-stitch on flights. I have been leaviing my scissors home (cutting the thread before hand) though because I'm afraid they may take it and I've had it since I was 12!!

    You can find out the current allowable items at www.tsa.gov

Just make sure your scissors have the rounded ends, and if you take nail clippers, make sure they don't have a file, since those will be taken away.

    Hope this helps!
    They'll let you have nail clippers, but not ones with files on them? What are you gonna do? File the pilot to death?

    I'm in the quilting process of my blocks, some are a 12" block with a frame (or border) which makes it as big as 4 blocks, the other pieces are 2 blocks sewn together. I'm hand quilting, when I'm done I'll sew the blocks together, top only then fold over and blind stitch the backing. That is the plan, I'll let you know soon, I have enough quilted to sew one row together. I'm doing it like this so I can bring it to work with me and work on it when I have time. If the putting it together goes well it would make machine quilting waaaaay easier too!
