I’m going to miss these ladies!
There were 4 years in between my last visit and this one, and it is likely to be the same kind of distance in between! When I open up my calendar for bookings for 2019 I hope to see them on it!
We had such a great time, and Summer in Alaska can be really wonderful.
It was pushing 90 degrees yesterday. It will be doing the same up here in Fairbanks.
Funny to think that just a few days ago I was freezing my tookass off on Kenai Fjords tour with down jacket and hand and all – and here I didn’t bring things that are cool enough.
I’m dying for a pair of sandals!
I’d be shopping for some today if it weren’t a double duty day in store with a workshop today and a lecture tonight in Fairbanks.
Yesterday’s workshop is one of my favorites, but one that doesn’t come around as often as it is from my first book, Scraps & Shirttails! It’s a 3 block medallion, mine made with recycled fabrics, and we use the Easy Angle ruler with several different strip widths for half square triangles that finish at 1.5”, 2”, 3” and 4.5”. This is why I love a tool that will do more than one thing!
Our Project! Shirttails, the flagship quilt from my book, giving the book its name!
Union square blocks!
Jacob’s Ladder blocks and Rosebud blocks!
All play nicely together to make a very rustic sofa sized snuggle quilt with loads of vintage appeal!
Such fun blocks!
This one was made completely by cutting different sizes of triangles with the Easy Angle Ruler!

After a yummy dinner of moose sausage and ice cream with our hosts, Lonnie and Jay Miller ((Yes, they spoiled us rotten and their B&B in Delta Junction, Hillcrest, is not to be missed!)) We headed back through the evening sun to Fairbanks where I’ll be giving two more days of workshops along with the lecture tonight.
Even though it was 10pm, I felt like taking a walk around the square down town!
That’s a 10pm sun behind the statue!
My 10pm Shadow waving back at you!
A magnificent 10pm skyline along the river.
It’s going to be a great couple of days here in Fairbanks and I can’t wait to meet new friends in class this morning!
