We departed Vancouver and sailed north to Juneau. The first full day at sea was Katja's class.
Jo-Ann, who had never English Paper Pieced before, finished her project before the cruise ended.
The Mug Rug Challenge was put up and everyone who stopped by our room to visit, was invited to vote. Judy's work of art won by a narrow margin. So many talented women in one room.
Busy, busy, busy!!!
The second full day at sea, was my Mariner's Star class. The fabric provided was "For You" by Zen Chic. There were a few finished tops before we left the ship.
Beauty abounded. I didn't rise in time for a sunrise, but the top photo is still showing a little colour in the clouds over the wake of the boat. The Glacier Bay stop displayed the majesty of nature.
Of course we had time for a little fun on shore. Jo-Ann is spotting Katja for a few crunches!
This picture was taken at Skagway. Great friends on a great hike along the shore.
Starved for internet service, Katja and I were catching up outside the quilt store in Ketchikan when a GOOD friend gave us some old school technology to see us through the rest of the trip.
On the last day we held a Jelly Roll Race. Twelve women took part. Most said they didn't need a helper, but it was great to see as the race went on, everyone pitched in to help wrangle the 1600 inches of fabric. Lots of laughs, great prizes provided by Trend-Tex Fabrics, and all finished a quilt top in sixty-five minutes or less.
Thanks to all the women who came on this Grand Adventure with Katja and I! I hope you all had as much fun as I did.
Linking up with Finish it up Friday!
