Come see the majesty and beauty of Alaska!
With mountains to climb, rivers to raft, glaciers to coo over and a bevy of bears to photograph, Alaska is the ultimate wilderness. From the moment you arrive, the raw, unspoiled beauty of the USA’s 49th state is almost overwhelming. And, oh, the trees. Everywhere you look as we sail along the coast – Trees, Trees and more Trees. It’s an amazing site to behold! Don’t miss out on one of our most popular destinations!
About the Educator:
I’ve been sewing since my teens and quilting for more than 25 years. My first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Since I had a king sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid ’80’s!) Let’s just say my fabric tastes have changed since then!
I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I’m the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I’m foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country.
I’m a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood, and 50 Little Gifts published by Lucky Spool. You can frequently find my work in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Magazine, Modern Patchwork Magazine and Curated Quilts Magazine.
Let’s connect! You can find me on my blog: www.heatherkojan.com or on Instagram @heatherkojan.
About the Project:
Heather is busy designing a new project for this cruise. It will be called Alaskan Forest and will be based on trees of course. More information will be available soon about the project as Heather completes the design. In the meantime, you can visit her blog to see more of her technique style: www.heatherkojan.com or on Instagram @heatherkojan.
