Pat Sloan's Cruise Seminar...Ocean Breeze

Here I am with Pat...what a great lady.....I hope you all have the chance to meet her someday.
Pat brought her new fabric "Nikki" on the ship so I was able to score the whole line in 1/2 yard cuts! it. I have 2 quilts in mind already.
This is the pattern in the kit for the class "Ocean Breeze". Pat was so prepared that she partially cut the fabrics so we could start sewing with a half hour of class starting.
The most tedious part of the quilt was squaring up the half square triangles. Quilts that Pat brought on the ship...soooo much more beautiful in person. I was amazed at how much can be lost with a picture.

Here we are at the 2nd part of Pat's class. It was very so much fun. I LOVED the Janome Memory Craft 6600....I have no affliation with Janome...just loved using the machine so much that I bought one. They sold 29 machines to the 43 ladies in the class!!! Now that's how great this machine is. A new friend we made...a gal from Kentucky...
Pat gave some great tips. I thought I couldn't learn anything new from her and boy was I wrong. She told us her trick for machine applique and it really worked to my surprise. I don't have tons of pictures of the class room...because I was sewing LOL.
