A Whale’s Tail – Quilting Cruise

September 16 – 23, 2023

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, there will be whales.  It’s one of the most watched for things during an Alaskan cruise.  Watch for the spray and then a tail.

About the Project:

Ruth Ann has designed this project for the cruise.

Lets build a bed sized 3D quilt reminiscent of ocean water and breaching whales. The Whale’s Tail 3D Quilt project finishes to 84’’x92’’ and features Northcott fabric collections, Toscana, Canvas and Bliss (in a variety of color choices)

Create the illusion of depth using straight rows of equilateral triangles with no “Y” seams. Use color and value rather than complicated piecing to construct an Alaskan Trip keepsake
