Sorry for the technical difficulties! As some of you noticed, the pictures in the last post were upside down. :-( We think we’ve gotten to the bottom of it. Long story short, the way I took the pictures on my iphone caused them to be upside down in mobile applications which include ipads and maybe tablets? Sigh……Computers will be the death of me some day!
My sister Brenda and I have been wanting to try out a quilting cruise for some time. Partly because it just sounded like a GREAT vacation and partly as research. We’d like to host a quilting cruise ourselves sometime.
The cruise was to the Eastern Caribbean, hosted by Liz and Brenda Lou of Scottie Dog Quilts in Eureka California. They were great hosts! They treated us with lots of surprises and fun along with great projects. They traveled with 14 suitcases to put on this cruise for us!
On the three days we were at sea Liz and Brenda Lou demonstrated techniques used on the three projects offered (along with some fun, small project demos).
Caribbean Breeze quilt
We had the option of purchasing kits, pattern only and bring our own fabrics, or just bring our own project. Brenda and I choose to do the quilt and zipper bags. Here’s our quilts.
I got my center done!
She got her rows done! I adore the soft blue and gray.
Here’s some blocks from other quilters Caribbean Breeze quilts.
Here’s a few shots of the meeting room that was open for us 24/7 for quilting. We could go sew anytime we wanted.
Here’s some other projects the gals were working on while at sea.
We visited St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Nassau. I love the colors of the Caribbean! It was so beautiful. It was in the 80′s most of the trip. Here’s a little sampling of the sites from the islands.
Brenda’s a bird watcher. She enjoyed hunting for birds on St. Maarten and I got a few good shots. I love shooting flowers and I found a little lizard while Brenda spotted a large iguana.
I’d love to hear what you think about a quilt cruise. Have you been on one? Does it sound like fun? Would you consider going on one? We are thinking of doing an Alaska cruise summer of 2015. Would you like to join us?
Hope your week’s been good and you have a GREAT weekend!!
Thanks for visiting!
