We’ve just returned from a fantastic quilt cruise with Voyage of the Vikings with Quilt Seminars at Sea.
During sea days, I taught my Celtic Illusions technique, a Transparency class and a special class: Quilts of Illusion, focused on creating perspective in quilts.
We sailed from Amsterdam, our group joining us there and had port stops in Newcastle in England, South Queensferry (Edinburgh) and Invergordon (Inverness) in Scotland. 3 stops in Iceland and 2 stops in Norway rounded out our trip.
During our time at sea, we had quilt classes, get-togethers, quilt games, sewing time and fun being together.
Some photos from our time in Amsterdam. While there, we visited museums and enjoyed walking along the canals.
Our first classes were held once we were on the ship. We had full classes and excited students from around the world.
Our first stop was Newcastle-on-Tyne in England. Some of us took a shore excursions to York.
Loved our visit there! Some fantastic sight-seeing and a yummy fish and chips lunch.
Stops in South Queensferry and Invergordon were our next stop. Rick and I scheduled a tour with a Steve, our Scottish guide. Outlander fans will recognize some of these locations.
One of my favorite photos of Rick and I, at Midhope Castle (Lallybroch to Outlander fans)
Onward toward Iceland, quilting classes while we sailed. Iceland is an amazing place. Many of us took shore excursions while we were at port. A few photos from this amazing place.
One of our stops was a geyser just outside Reyjkavik. I was able to capture a slo-motion video of its eruption.
After three stops in Iceland, we were ready for more quilt classes and quilting fun!
Next stop, Norway, more beautiful sights, yummy snacks and wonderful quilting inspiration.
It was an amazing trip with memories to last a life-time.
