Hello Everyone,

Friday was a great day at Road To California.  I taught one of my most favorite quilts that I have designed.... my Island Breeze Quilt.  I remember when I designed this quilt and Island Batik loved the design and asked if I would use their fabrics.  Woohoo!  Then it ended up on the cover of Quilt Magazine.  It was a thrill for me!

It is still a thrill for me to pass this along to other quilters by teaching how to make this sweet gem.  I really enjoy seeing other quilter's take on my design.


Not only that, I love teaching the technique for the flying geese and quarter square blocks.  There are so many ways to make these blocks and I adore teaching them to my students.

I get to teach this quilt again in April on a cruise too!  Do you want to make this quilt too??... join me on the cruise... details here.  But in the meantime here are a few pics of my class from Road To California to whet your whistle.

Now I bet you can't wait to make the quilt.... right?? Find the pattern here in either an instant PDF download OR printed pattern.

Until Next Time...
