We are headed back to the land where eagles fly free, where dolphins and whales call home during the summer, and where glaciers grow and recede annually. Don’t miss out on one of our most popular cruises as we explore the Last Frontier.
About the Educator:
Peggy Gelbrich has been quilting and teaching quilt making for over 35 years. It’s her passion to share the art of quilt making with others, always encourage her students. She has taught quilt making across the United States and in Canada, teaching at large guild classes, quilting retreats and small private groups in her home. She has been nominated as Teacher of the Year for the Quilt Professional Magazine.
Her focus is on traditional quilts; sometimes making them with a little twist to make an old pattern new again. She enjoys trying different techniques in the quilt making process, always looking for an easier way to conquer those seemingly difficult patterns. Her quilts have been pictured in Quilter’s Newsletter, Quiltmaker and McCall’s Quilting.
Born and raised in Oregon, Peggy, with her husband Ron and three children, lived in Ketchikan, Alaska for 22 years, moving to Washington State for a few years and now have returned to Oregon. She and her husband live on family land, part of her grand-great-grandparents original land claim, near Yamhill.
About the Project:
The Glorious Clams quilt looks a little complicated but goes together smoothly. Add tools to your quilter’s toolbox learning freezer paper foundation piecing and curved piecing. Foundation piecing, using freezer paper leaves no paper to tear away from the seams and your pattern is reusable. In cutting your clams, you have the ability to fussy cut fabric if you wish.
