Cruising, Friends, Fun and Quilting!

You are probably wondering who Diana is.
Diana Simkins is Judy Niemeyer certified instructor.

This is a link to Diana's website:
http://www.quiltworx.com/instructors/diana-simkins/

You can see some of the beautiful quilts she has made "and" teaches others how to achieve such amazing results. Diana cruised on one of my quilting cruises and she had a trunk show of her work! I couldn't believe the beautiful quilts she has made and she inspires others to do so as well.

Attached a picture of the project Diana has designed for the cruise. It is a 48 X 56 wall hanging. Paper pieced with the stems and leaves appliqued.


Students may also also choose to do the Diamond Wedding Ring if they want a larger project.

Diana will provide kits-$100 for the wall hanging and $175 for the wedding ring- or Diana can send project material lists to students if they prefer. She will also have a list of tools for them to bring.

Cost of the workshop $225 per student plus any kits or tools they would like Diana to get for them.
