2016 Quilting Cruise Sponsored By Cactus Quilts
I’m so excited to announce that I have been asked to be the returning teacher on the coming 2016 3rd Annual Quilting Cruise sponsored by Cactus Quilts.
The cruise leaves out of Galveston April 10th and returns on the 17th, 2016. This year we will be enjoying the Carnival Magic as she takes us to fabulous ports of call in Key West, Fl and Freeport & Nassau, Bahamas. Once again there will be 3 Days at Sea filled with wondrous quilting classes taught by three different teachers.I will be teaching a workshop with my original pattern Double Occupancy based on Deb Tucker’s Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star Ruler and technique – just as the name implies bring your quilting “room-mate” and make a quilt together that will always remind you of our fun time at sea together.
I hope you’ll join me on this wonderful Cactus Quilts quilting cruise. To register for the cruise and buy supplies,click here.

03 –¬†Double Occupancy
In this class be prepared to learn a new technique while have fun doing it!¬† Double Occupancy Pattern was designed to use the Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star ‚ĄĘ ruler.¬† With the use of the specialty ruler and Karen’s techniques, all levels of¬†quilters¬†will grasp this complicated looking block.¬† As the pattern name implies two¬†quilting¬†roommates can pool together the fabric sets to each make a unique lap size¬†quilt. The pattern also includes a “baker’s dozen” of layout possibilities for inspiration using the traditional Hunter’s Star block.
Kit includes pattern, technique sheet, and fabric. Specialty ruler required and purchased separately.
