Colleen Granger, September 2021
Speaker and Workshop

The Chugach Range is the northern most mountain range in the state of Alaska.  This quilt is created using one 40 - 2 1/2" strip set.  Borders are extra.  It can also be done scrappy.  The possibilities are endless.

Create your pieces then off you go to the design wall.  It is so much fun watching these quilts evolve.  All fabric is used when you create the "drunken border."  I like that no leftovers!

The September 14th and 21st workshop will be a zoom workshop hosted by Colleen Granger.  Times will be 10am to 1pm.


Colleen Granger was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and joined the Air Force shortly after her high school graduation. She served as a helicopter mechanic for seven years before leaving to have her second child.  Colleen has spent the majority of her life in Alaska, making her home in Glennallen. She went kicking and screaming into the world of quilting in the summer of 1998. Until that time, Colleen had been a sewer and thought quilting was a waste of good fabric. But she caught the bug big-time and purchased her long-arm quilting machine just eight months after making her first quilt.

Colleen is a grandmother, mother, widow, sister, and daughter. She has enjoyed living part-time, in Alaska and part-time with her mom, Elaine, in California.  Many people get to meet “Mom” as she helps staff Colleen’s booth at quilt shows across the states.  Through her company, Sew Little Time Quilting, Colleen offers machine-quilting services, classes and lectures, patterns, and a variety of notions. Over the years, Colleen’s

designs have been featured in national quilting magazines. On several occasions Colleen has been an instructor at the International Quilt Festivals in Houston, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. She enjoys what she does and believes that “if you are not having fun, then you shouldn’t be doing "it" whatever "it" maybe.

She has a special trunk show for our program in September.
