In case anyone was wondering, I haven't disappeared.... I've been up to my neck in orders for my new kits, as well as doctor appointments for my recent Lyme disease diagnosis. That's a little dreadful, but such a relief to know what I'm up against and to be making progress toward recovery! My husband and I just took a quick trip to Anchorage for one appointment, and a few quilt shops along the way too, of course! We had great weather and scenery, and even a stop at Denali National Park for a night on the way home. Now it's back to work, I think I bought about 15 yards of fabric... :-)
Journal Cover Class
I'm excited to be teaching my first class at the new Folk School tomorrow, my quilted journal cover. The kids and I have also been busy making lots more card kits, much of the first batch only lasted two days!
The "First Friday" went well...it was the debut for my card kits and I sold more of those than finished cards, so I'm pretty excited about that :-) I also got a little dragonfly quilt finished just in time to bring along. The Material Girls quilt shop unveiled their article in Quilt Sampler (spring/summer) magazine, they have a nice several page article. If you look close, there are a few things I made or quilted in the photos :-) (page 73 and 75)
UPDATE: The kit is now available, click here!
New raven silk screen
Last reminder for the First Friday at the Material Girls quilt shop tonight, 5-9 pm! Lots of printing, cutting, and stuffing of patterns and kits going on around here today, and MAYBE even a quick mini quilt...
And my newest raven silk screen :-)
I've done several "First Fridays" around town, and this week (May 2nd, 5-9 pm) I will be doing my first one at the Material Girls quilt shop (downstairs). I'll have some new cards, plus patterns and kits, and my recent caribou quilt for sale. Stop by and say hi!
Beret Nelson's On The Trail Creations Blog Page
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
