And of course....desert from the ship LOL
It was a quilting cruise as well. I had a class with Margaret Miller who is known for her Angle Play. The class was a good learning experience about angles and design and really stepping up my quilting "game". In addition to that, I was encouraged to step up by Vikki Pignatelli who is know for Improvisational Quilting. Her ideas are just a tiny jumping off point. I could go crazy with her awesome ideas. I understand the process of improvisation and how to free my quilting mind...and embrace my creativity. It was a fabulous learning experience with Vikki. If you ever get the chance to learn from either teacher...DO it.
While we had quilt classes while we out to sea, we had shore time too. I visited the quilt shops in Sitka: Abby's Reflection
Ketchikan: Silver Thimble
