It’s Day 4 of the Easy Appliqué Blocks Book-A-Round. North to Alaska! We leave Canada, head north and west, and land in Seward, Alaska. Marguerita McManus hosts us today.

Seward is famous for three things… the Kenai Fjords National Park with its calving glaciers and whales, the race to the top of Mt. Marathon on the 4th of July, and the Silver Salmon Derby in August. Marguerita says, “In the winter it’s as dead as a doornail, but the summer fishing, fun and daylight make it a great place to visit or live.”

Marguerita is an Alaskan quilter, teacher, and co-author of the book Crazy Shortcut Quilts. She shares her quilting studio with a pet rabbit. Let’s go visit her blog Crazy Shortcut Quilts!

    Fascinating site. I have only made one quilt, am just starting my second (for my sons for wedding gifts). I really look forward to doing an applique quilt after this one, and becoming more involved in quilting. I am impressed by the friendliness of quilters, and their creativity. You’ll be hearing more from me once things get under control in my life. Maria and I were friends in high school, eons ago. Hi Maria! Best wishes, Mary
