Stop dreaming of Alaska and make it happen!
We’re giving you permission to come play in Alaska with our educator, Cindy and other quilters from across the world. Enjoy the cool breezes and amazing scenery of this beautiful part of the globe.
About the Educator:
Cindy is an award-winning artist with over 30 years’ experience creating eye-catching quilts. Her first quilt was a queen-sized Trip Around the World where she cut all the squares out using a cardboard template and pinking shears! Despite the problem of getting an accurate seam allowance under those conditions, Cindy was hooked on quilting and never looked back. Although she began as a traditional quiltmaker, her style has evolved into a more modern aesthetic using improvisational techniques. She especially enjoys interpreting two of her favorite traditional patterns, Log Cabin and Drunkard’s Path, in contemporary designs.
Cindy is the author of Artful Improv: Explore Color Recipes, Building Blocks & Free Motion Quilting, and she travels all over the country teaching improvisational design, piecing, and free motion quilting at guilds, shows, and festivals.
Even if you’ve never made an improv quilt before, Cindy’s tips and tricks make the process fun and easy.
