I’m looking forward to AQS Quilt Week in Chattanooga in September.  The registration opens June 14th.  . . . and the classes are sure to fill quickly!

I’m teaching some new classes – my new Pick Up Sticks patterns is one of them and I’m crazy about this new quilt.

Yet another new class is perfect for beginners: Tumbling Blocks Fun!  If you have wanted to learn how to create a tumbling blocks quilt, but were afraid to try it, this is the class for you!

Alaska Cruise – August 19 – 26, 2017!

fbimages_alaska-002

In August, 2017, we will be traveling to one of my favorite destinations – Alaska!  I’ve been there 3 or 4 times already, but can’t wait to go back!

A cruise to Alaska is a perfect way to see this amazing landscape.   We will be traveling to and from Seattle on this 7 day cruise.   There’s something wonderful awaiting you in every port of call:

  • Juneau – In Alaska’s capital, taste salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, flight-see the Juneau Ice Field, and visit the Mendenhall glacier.
  • Sitka – Step back to the days of Russian Alaska as you watch lively performances of the New Archangel Dancers and view holy paintings of the Czarists’ days. Plenty of wildlife adventures await!
  • Ketchikan – Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world’s largest collection of totem poles or kayak the colorful waterfront. Visit Creek Street and see Alaska as the early pioneers did.
  • Victoria, B.C. – Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.

You can play tourist, choosing your pleasure, whether it be walking, touring, flight-seeing or shopping. All the ports we visit are directly in town, and there is a lot to see within walking distance, and the best part. . . quilt shops in every port! (Better take an empty suitcase with you!)

 

 

There are a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by myself, Laura Wasilowski, Gloria Loughman and Linda J. Hahn.  Sewing machines will be available for your use on board. You will even have the chance to purchase a new machine at a great price!   I’ve love to have you join us for this fantastic cruise!

I’ve had so much fun creating some new optical illusion quilt patterns.  You can see them below or for more information, you can visit my webpage, located here. 

ICE CRYSTALS

Ice Crystals is an amazing optical illusion and beautiful design!   I love how it looks in my sewing studio!  Perfect for the intermediate quilter, someone who has taken my Patchwork Illusions class or is comfortable with piecing diamonds.
