Canada and New England Quilt Retreat at Sea

Fall came and went in the New England states in a flurry of a hurry.  Our trip was great but the fall colors weren't as plentiful as some would have liked.  I am from the deserts of the southwest, and therefore there are not 4 seasons, so to me it was glorious and beautiful. I couldn't stop raving about the deepness of the red leaves.

Patrick Lose- our artist/instructor was a smashing hit. The projects that he had planned for us to do were of the fall colors and the celebration of Halloween.

This was one of the projects.

Cocktail hour was a hit, as we were all able to get to know each other a little better. Our Non-quilters joined us as well.

Our classtimes were busy with anxious and happy quilters.

When we were in port we were able to explore the sights-sounds-flavors of the areas we had sailed to: museums, shopping, art work, music, historical buildings, and history of the towns.
This trip took us from New Jersey, to Portland Maine, Bar Harbor Maine, Halifax Nova Scotia, St. Johns New Brunswick and Boston Massachutes.

Hope you will join us on a cruise soon. We have a lot of fun planned for one and all.
