Exploring Alaska Via Quilt Shops

I just returned from a fabulous vacation from cruising Alaska where I met up with family I haven't seen for 7 years. Before I left, of course, I looked up all the local quilt shops in our port cities, and made plans to visit them.

Our first stop is Ketchikan, where I visited the Whale's Tail Quilt Shop. It was a little sparse in some areas, perhaps they just had a clearance sale. I was specifically looking for Alaska-themed fat quarter packs, but unfortunately didn't find any.

Our next port city was Juneau, where I visited the Changing Tides shop. I had better luck here, and found some gorgeous batiks that I cut a yard each of, and some Alaska-themed batik fat quarter packs.

Finally, our last port city in Alaska is in Skagway, and I visited The Rushin' Tailor's Quilt Alaska. I saw a stunning quilt by Elizabeth Hartman hanging in the back, and was *thisclose* to purchasing the entire kit before I reminded myself that I had absolutely no room in my suitcase. I got more Alaska-themed batik fabrics.

And here is a picture of my haul: It appears my batik obsession is nowhere near over.
