I currently live in "the last frontier", AK. I am a full time RN, and sadly, probably do not quilt as much I would like. It is fun to stay connected with others through their love and enjoyment of fabric and quilting.
Love Alaska. My favorite vacation of all time. Got to spend a week in luxury on a cruise then a week ruffing it on Glacier Bay Island.
Now I live in Utah. Just as pretty but without the weird daylight not daylight thing.
Quilt Away when you have the time. Being a full time RN is greatly needed and we appreciate nurses and the jobs they have to do.
Welcome, Priecl! It's nice to have you join us here.
Hi Priecl! and Welcome to the group!
I loved Alaska! DH and I spent this past summer touring the state, what a trip! Literally, we had so much fun and saw so much of the great state. Course I had to stop at every quilt shop I saw and pick up a piece of fabric! Right now I am in So Calif being a caretaker for my Uncle, but when I get back to Texas I want to pull out all that wonderful fabric and make a memory quilt of our trip.
Please post pictures of whatever you are working on and welcome again.

Welcome, Priecl ! Ive never been to your beautiful state but it is on my list of trips we want to take. I work full time, also so I understand how there just is not enough time in a day for it all. I do love and enjoy the time I get to make quilts and things. I cant imagine not having my favorite hobby and all that goes with it . Hope to see some pics of your work. Susan, North, Florida
Welcome! This site is a lot of fun. Great people.
Hi and welcome Priecl, glad you joined us. I'm from MA, just SW of Boston. I had the pleasure of visiting your beautiful AK with my husband and two other couples, it was the vacation of a lifetime and I have memories to last forever. We'd love to see some of your creations, we love pictures!
Welcome!! I just saw your note and wanted to also welcome you. Husband and i just were in your lovely state this summer for 4 months. Touring and working. I'm also an RN, love to travel and sew quilts. We had such a wonderful time and I was teaching in Anchorage a few classes at the Alaska Native Hospital, so I made more money to buy more material!!
The wildlife and scenery we saw was amazing. Lot of material from that area, looking forward to working on it this year to make a few memory quilts. We also met so many new friends along the way. Met Sue and her husband as well as another couple here in San Antonio that we have made a few more trips with. What an amazing country this is, that we live in.
Priecl, welcome to the club .you will love it here .Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Welcome, Priecl! My 3 sisters & I took an Alaskan cruise a couple of years ago & loved it. It was a trip of a lifetime. A beautiful state, Would love to do it again but stay longer.
This is a great site with great people.
Glad you can join us from "the last frontier". I only work part-time and still don't quilt as much as I would like. Hope you will share pics with us.
