I’ve just returned from another fantastic quilting cruise with Quilt Seminars at Sea, this time to Alaska, along The Inside Passage.

It is really hard to put into words or show with a photo the beauty of Alaska, but here are a few photos from our trip.

 

 

This has to be one of my favorite shots. . . after a morning of thick fog, we were treated to bright blue skies while we cruised along Glacier Bay.

I had the opportunity to visit the Quaking Aspen Quilt Guild in beautiful Boulder, Colorado in June.  Another amazing quilt guild in a lovely location.

This was the view from our classroom! Just beautiful!

It was a treat to be at their guild meeting. . . they had made comfort quilts for a children’s camp.  Each child attending the camp got their own quilt and matching pillow case.  The lecture location was filled with quilts for the camp and we all got a little teary-eyed, seeing all the quilts and knowing the joy they would bring to each child.

Thank you to Beth (past program chair) for inviting me to teach and lecture for her guild and thank you to Dayna (current program chair) for making my visit so pleasant.  It was a pleasure to be with all of you!

In June, I had a wonderful visit with the Quilters Anonymous Quilt Guild in Shoreline, Washington.

It was a special treat to visit such a beautiful area.  I had an opportunity to walk around near-by Edmonds, Washington,  flowers were everywhere! If you click on my Instagram photo, you can see more photos from my visit.

If you are visiting the area, I highly recommend taking the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston.  It was a lovely trip and round trip was about $8, if you are a walk-on passenger.

The day was clear and the sun was out, I even go a look at Mt Baker and Mt Rainier.  Made the ferry ride even more special

The members of the guild were so much fun and so friendly. . . I felt as if I walked into a room full of friends (which actually what I did!)

Dianna, Patsy, Lorraine and Barbara (joint program chairs) made my visit so special and I had such a wonderful time with the guild.  Thank you to all, I hope to return in the future to your beautiful area.

Alaska 4 Day Overland & 7 Day Quilt Cruise!

2018 Alaska Cruisetour Quilt Cruise

Land + Sea!

This year we will have the special opportunity to add a 4 day land package to the beginning of the trip for a truly in-depth Alaskan experience.

You will travel via motorcoach and the Alaska Railroad from Fairbanks to see the majesty of Denali National Park and Denali, America’s tallest peak! We’ll then board Holland America Line’s wonderful ship, the ms Noordam, and cruise to popular ports.

There’s something wonderful awaiting you at every destination. You can play tourist, choosing your pleasure whether it be walking, touring, flight-seeing or shopping!

All the ports we visit are right in town, and there is a lot to see within walking distance, including quilt shops in every port!

2019 Hawaii Quilt Cruise

Aloha! We are going to the tropical paradise of Hawai`i! We’ll sail on Holland America Line’s beautiful ms Eurodam, roundtrip out of San Diego!

Set sail on a Hawaiian cruise to Kauai, Maui, Oahu and The Big Island of Hawaii, including the active Kilauea Volcano (hopefully she’ll put on a show for us!)

From turtles to stingrays, submarines to snorkeling, there’s something wonderful awaiting you in every port of call.

What a great way to usher in spring and take a break from everyday life while enjoying 5-star service and the company of fellow quilters!
