Sandy-Fitzpatrick-Headshot.jpg

Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Sandy Fitzpatrick of Hissyfitz Designs is an applique quilt
pattern designer and national teacher, whose goal is to get
as many of the quirky designs, that are spinning around in
her head, down on paper for you to enjoy! Her fusible applique
patterns are full of whimsy and will certainly bring a smile to
your face. Sandy strives to make her full-size patterns easy
to follow and fun to make.
Early days of sewing included everything from clothing for herself to smocked dresses
and outfits for her three children. Those children are now adults with children of their
own who wear those previously smocked garments. As often happens, Sandy’s love
of sewing transcended into quilt making. She found that stitching quilts was “sew”
much easier since there are a lot of straight seams and a quilt will fit anyone (one
size fits all)! Her creative spirit soon took over as she tired of making traditional quilts
and moved into applique quilts using her own designs.
Sandy now lives in Cary, North Carolina. You can get a feel for her quirky, “outside
the box” designs by visiting her webpage, www.HissyfitzDesigns.com.

PROJECTS FOR THE CRUISE

 Stitch your memories of this fun filled cruise into your own Jimmy Buffett inspired quilt. A pre-fused laser cut kit will allow you to create this carefree design to remind you of the feel of the sun on your face and your toes in the sand. Additionally, beach themed coasters will make a great smaller project.

  SHANNON SHIRLEY

SHANNON SHIRLEY

Shannon grew up in an Air Force family and moved throughout her childhood. She fondly remembers hand sewing classes at the village school she attended in England. She has lived in Northern Virginia since 1974. After high school, she received an Associates degree from The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. For a number of years, she worked in the merchandising and display fields for Woodward and Lothrop in Virginia. Art in just about any form has always inspired her. In most areas of her life, she has eclectic taste, and likes change and variety, so it seems only natural that her quilting is eclectic as well. She uses a wide variety of techniques and materials, whatever seems to suit the project at hand. Shannon enjoys both traditional quilting and art quilting. She prefers to design original quilts, working from the stash she has collected over the years. Letting the projects evolve as she works, one common thread in her art would be mixing a large variety of printed fabrics.

Shannon has been teaching professionally since 2006 and loves working with students of all ability levels. She particularly enjoys when she is able to help someone overcome a stumbling block of some kind. She looks forward to hearing from her past students and seeing their quilt projects.

Come join me for a week of fun "Cruising’ the Caribbean.” On our days at sea will will enjoy our time creating a beautiful 68” square quilt top, whether you choose sea turtles or flip flops it’s sure to be a keepsake from your trip that you will enjoy for years to come. We will also be making a zippered pouch that you can use for for your sewing kit, make up or as a clutch purse.

Meet Heather Kojan

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. You can also find my work in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine and Modern Patchwork Magazine.

 

Let's connect! You can find me on my blog: www.heatherkojan.com or on Instagram @heatherkojan.

HEATHER'S PROJECTS FOR THE QUILT AND CRUISE!

 Modern Improv Sampler: Ready to dip your toes into some improvisational piecing? Then this sampler is for you! Wonky stars, log cabins, 9 patches, etc - improvised but with detailed instruction. Make this for a little one in your life - or for yourself!

Angela.jpg

Meet the teacher- Angela Clark

Angela started piecing in 2004 and purchased her first longarm in 2008.   After being an award winning custom long arm quilter for five years, Angela purchased her first (of three and counting) computerized systems, and she fell in love with the capabilities that it added to her custom quilting repertoire.  

Prior to longarm quilting, her career was in Computer Application Technical Support where she supported personal and professional financial software, including remote user training.  Angela’s Thread Waggle Quilting business was named an APQS showroom in 2014. As she grew her customer base and started supporting more users, she saw an opportunity to combine her technical and artistic professions by publishing a weekly series of blog posts titled “Tech Sunday” where she described what she had learned about the Quilt Path software program during the previous week.  After 18 months of posts, Angela used the Tech Sunday material as the basis for her first in person Quilt Path boot camp in 2014. Since then, Angela has taught over 500 students in person in her showroom in Raleigh, as a traveling teacher across the US and France, Germany, Canada and the UK, and through her online training courses.

She now has 6 longarms and 3 computer systems in her APQS showroom in Raleigh, North Carolina.   When she is not filming videos on Quilt Path, teaching classes and running her showroom ,she likes to relax by piecing quilts and freehand custom quilting them.

Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Sherri Hisey

 Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Border Creek Station Pattern Company

Sherri began quilting over 30 years ago when a good friend signed them both up for beginner classes calling her on vacation to tell her they were going to learn how to quilt! That beginner class, all sewn by hand and cut with scissors, was repeated three times. Sherri stands by her story that it was all because they provided tea, cookies and free babysitting!

Border Creek Station Logo2.jpg

When Sherri started teaching quilting classes, she began by taking the mystery out of the quilt making process and focused on mastering solid techniques so quilters would have confidence to complete the projects they wanted to, while keeping the emphasis on fun. As a joke to her students Sherri created a mystery project to keep them guessing and have fun with this mysterious quilting adventure. They loved the process and demanded more. So ironically, through her Border Creek Station Pattern Company, Sherri brought “mystery” and “fun” back together with the BCS Mystery Quilt Club. As one of the largest mystery quilt programs offered, Sherri designs an original quilt each year and has done so for the last 18 years.

Sherri lives in a small ‘ghost-town’ village of Kilworthy in Ontario, Canada with her very supportive husband Ron (who works fulltime with Sherri including binding all of her quilts - he is a keeper!) and since their children have left the nest, they also keep busy with their two furry pals Jessie and Logan, both hunting dogs who love the outdoors and of course, cuddling with quilts.

PROJECTS FOR THE CRUISE

Sherri is working on something special for this trip. Sherry is planning 2 projects, one is a Mystery.

This project uses mock up fabrics  batiks in blues. The project is 71 x 81.

 GUDRUN ERLA WILL BE YOUR QUILTING INSTRUCTORS FOR YOUR TRIP.

Gudrun Erla, the designer and owner of GE Designs is born and raised in Iceland. She started quilting at the age of 23 and became totally addicted to it right away. After owning and running quilt shops in her home country and designing patterns along side it, a career move brought the family to Minnesota in 2003. Since then Gudrun has been designing full time, publishing patterns and books from her home office in Chanhassen, MN; where the family has been living since the move to the US.

Gudrun loves everything quick and simple, so her quilts might look more complicated than they really are. She loves to find ways to do things quicker and use easier methods. Her “quilt as you go” patterns have been very popular, with easy to follow instructions and quick assembly and finishing. All her patterns are geared toward today’s quilt makers, easy and fast with a modern touch. Gudrun has also been designing fabrics for Red Rooster Fabrics since 2006.

GUDRUN'S PROJECTS

  This quilt uses assorted 10" squares and innovative piecing and cutting with the Stripology Squared ruler by GE Designs. The pattern comes with 6 different size options: crib, lap, twin, full, queen, king.
