Hawaii Cruise Classes

We spent 5 days sailing from Hawaii to Vancouver - what a perfect time to have quilting classes! We scheduled one class (or event) each morning and afternoon and had a wonderful group of enthusiastic students. Susan taught beading and wool applique; Cathy designed a hibiscus flower and also entertained us with songs and stories; I taught my overlays/cutaways design and students made undersea pictures. Here are a few photos from my class:

One of the projects for all the students was making a cover for a small journal book that we had given them when we started our cruise. We brought lots of bits and pieces (beads, sequins, embroidery threads) and students had collected items to add to their book covers (ticket stubs, brochures, photographs). Some very interesting covers were created.

On our last day at sea we all dressed 'Hawaiian' and had a group photo taken on deck. What a great group!

I definitely agree with your comment "... what a perfect time to have quilting classes!"

I think a quilting cruise is a perfect goal to put on my own "vision board". Looks like the ladies had an awesome time!
