plus Quilting Classes/ Workshops during 3 fun sea days
Experience a life-time adventure that cruising has to offer with three unique ports of call plus quilting classes. Our Quilting classes/ Workshops are held during "at sea" days and we schedule classes outside of port time. Our goal is to make your quilting/cruising experience a true pleasure and memorable. The quilting classes will challenge the quilter by adding some new tools/ techniques to their quilting tool box, while achieving success. We will live, laugh, learn, and go home with lots of memories of our quilting cruise. Cactus Quilts cruise Teachers includes: Veronica Cox, Lynn Roddy Brown and Karen E. Overton. The three quilting classes are listed below..

Veronica will teach you to navigate your way with a short cut to piecing this classic quilt pattern. Using a special interfacing made by Quiltsmart, you will be able to complete this intricate quilt in a fast and easy way. The completed mariner's compass block measures 21" x 21".
Kit includes the pattern, fabrics and Quiltsmart special interfacing.
02 - Puss in a Corner
Instructor: Lynn Roddy Brown
This class is to be a fun, no pressure day of sewing. Lynn will cover scrap quilt theory, precise piecing and designing on a wall. Fabrics from you stash can be used to make this delightfully scrappy version of a traditional Puss in a Corner quilt. The 64" x 81" size is great for naps. The wonderful thing about scrap quilts is that if you are having fun you can make a larger quilt but if you want to stop with a smaller project that also works.
This is an original design by Karen Overton celebrating the 2015 Quilting Cruise offered by Cactus Quilts. The design is based on Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Designs Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler and project sheet. The centers are the same but you will have the two of different border treatments, one quilt with Piano Keys Border measuring 38" x 38" and other with the Diamonds Border measures 32"x32". Kits will be available in two color options (light or dark background).
Kit includes Fabric and Pattern. Required tools will be sold separately.
