In The Wild – Alaska Quilting Cruise

August 2 – 9, 2025

Alaska’s unspoiled wildlands provide some of the best wildlife habitat in the country for animals such as eagles, salmon, caribou and grizzly bears. They also provide sustenance for Alaska Natives who have lived off the land for thousands of years.

About the Educator:  Carla Klop

For almost 30 years Carla made all her quilts by hand – and only discovered the rotary cutter in 2005! Recognizing how much faster making quilts would become, her ideas just went wild. There wasn’t enough time to make all these quilts without finding ways to go faster. So this resulted in 8 Shortcut Sheets – accidently discovered by breaking the rules.

All 8 methods have been published in a binder format along with practice patterns foreach technique, quilt patterns, tips and worksheets.

Five of her designs were published in AQ Magazine. Carla also works with Northcott to design many patterns using their fabrics.

About the Project:

Our educator is in the process of designing a new project for the cruise.  The quilt will be minimum of a twin, and will be perfect for the moderate quilter.  Stay tuned for more details.
