Island Vibes – Caribbean Quilting Cruise
January 13 – 21, 2024
Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas
Soak up the sun and the vibe of the Caribbean on this fun quilting cruise.
Not only will you enjoy the music, the culture and the warmth of the people,
but you will be amazed by the beautiful bold colors that create the natural artistry of the islands.
The Educator: Erin Grogan
Erin Grogan has designed the “Aparrotly It’s a Party” quilt pattern especially for the Island Vibes Quilting Cruise. This pattern celebrates the vivid colors and parrots of the Caribbean. Each time you snuggle underneath it you will be reminded of the fun adventures you had in the Caribbean. Erin will be teaching her three different methods for traditionally piecing curves including the Drunkards Path block and inset circles. Erin will also be sharing her favorite techniques for strip piecing, half square triangles, and covered corners. This is an intermediate level quilt that finishes at 70″ x 90′, but is also perfect for the confident beginner who is ready to learn how to sew curves.
