Indiana Heritage Quilt Show and the Caribbean!

Having the best time! I’m in the middle of an almost two week long trip. First, I went to Bloomington, Indiana for the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show. The show was wonderful and my classes were very fun – full of great ladies!

Diana Reutter Mahrenholz took my Goose is Loose class two years ago at the IHQS show. This is her stunning quilt, started in the class. Way to go Diana!

This is a reversible T-shirt Quilt by Linda Kelsey of Bloomington, IN. One side is feminist and the other political. I love it!

This quilt is called Cordoba, and it’s by Claudia Pfeil, of Krefeld, Germany. Fascinated by mosaics, Claudia created the center of her quilt from a photo of the Mezquita Cathedral de Cordoba. The building is famous for its horseshoe shaped arches. It is now the home of the Roman Catholic Cathedral. The corners symbolize sunshine and the four corners of the compass.

In Bloomington, where I was teaching, the terrible weekend storms went around the city. But much of Indiana and the surrounding region was not so lucky. With all of today’s technology there is little that can be done in the face of Mother Nature at her worst. So sad for the good folks of Indiana and Kentucky.

The second part of my trip is – a quilting cruise in the Caribbean! Packing, first for Indiana and then for the cruise, was challenging, to say the least. The cruise is “The Allure of Paper Piecing Cruise” and I’m teaching with Carol Doak, & Eileen Sullivan on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise. Internet access is limited, so I will update you when I return from this fabulous trip.
