About Maxine Rosenthal

Maxine Rosenthal, a seasoned quilter with a passion dating back many years, embarked on her quilting journey in 1988, focusing on the captivating realm of kaleidoscope quilts. Her enduring fascination with the diverse array of patterns that different fabrics yield has fueled her dedication to sewing and quilting.

Transitioning from garment creation to the intricate world of quilts, Maxine's creative evolution has been remarkable. Prior to her quilting pursuits, she carved a path in computer software writing, briefly delved into furniture refinishing - an exploration she views as a stroll through history.

Maxine's quilting prowess gained recognition when she was commissioned to craft a quilt for the film "Grumpier Old Men," leaving her with a cherished memento in the form of a Warner Bros. check. Though her cinematic moment ended up on the cutting-room floor, her passion endured.

Almost coinciding with her quilting initiation, Maxine ventured into crafting kaleidoscope blocks adorned with hexagons and octagons. Residing in Minnesota, Maxine Rosenthal's quilting journey is a testament to a lifelong commitment to creativity and craftsmanship.

Her artistic repertoire encompasses a diverse spectrum, embracing the creation of quilts ranging from the classic and traditional, to the mesmerizing kaleidoscopic designs, and even extending to the realm of expressive art quilts that push boundaries—all seamlessly woven together within her quilting tapestry.

Having honed her skills across the quilting spectrum, Nancy's creations stand as a testament to her versatile expertise, with each piece representing a unique chapter in her quilting story. From the timeless charm of traditional designs to the intricate geometry of kaleidoscopic patterns, and even venturing into the realm of innovative art quilts, Nancy's quilting journey is a remarkable fusion of experience, creativity, and continuous exploration.

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...

"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

-Land Ahoy Orlando Traveler

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
