Come Cruise With Me!
February 26 - March 5, 2017

You are just going to LOVE this quilt because of the many options. What we will do is make eight blocks at a time, each time using different prints. Repeat 10 times to make 80 blocks as we need for the quilt set. The block requires one dark print and one light print for the triangles, and two main prints/colors for the corner piecing plus an accent print for each main print. Once the blocks are done we will play around with the setting. All the quilts in the class will not be alike! Our finished project is made from 9" blocks.  The quilt measures 72" x 90".  Click here for more information on the cruise.

I have been sewing since the age of four and quilting since 1975. It has carried me happily through my earlier years as an Army wife and the many years and moves since. It has been the common thread throughout my life, linking me to great friends, quilt groups and shops where ever we have lived.

Inside you will find a list of my lectures and workshops. All are loaded with lots of information, tips and tricks. My goal is to give each student the precision skills she needs to make beautiful quilts she can be proud of. Many classes offer a small 'Try Me' project designed to let you sample a skill without investing the large amount of time and money needed for a larger quilt that you may never finish. These small projects finish nicely into table toppers, table runners, banners or small wall hangings. Of course,if you prefer,you can opt to make a larger version of each project where shown. I hope you find something to interest your group here.

Sincerely Yours,
