Quilt on a Sternwheeler!

Join us for a unique experience as we offer the first quilt class in the Mid-Ohio Valley on the Ohio River!  We are offering a once in a life time quilt class as we head down the river and offer a quilting class for up to 30 participants.  We will be making a new block designed by Brian and Warren that we have named the "Mid-Ohio Valley Star".  

This one day 'quilting cruise' includes a class on the Valley Gem Sternwheeler with lunch and some time to admire the scenic views from the upper deck.  We are working on creating a sample trunk show with the "Mid-Ohio Valley Star" made as a wall hanging and a quilt, as well as a sneak peak of whats new from the Redneck Quilter™! 

Boarding begins at 9am.  The Valley Gem will depart the dock at 9:30am.  We'll return to disembark around 3:30pm.

This all new "Mid Ohio Valley Star" Block is 24 1/2" x 24 1/2" square.  Pics of the blocks and the queen size quilts in two colorways can be seen below.
