This is a photo that came through my Facebook feed by Kansas City Star!
Look what is hanging FIRST in the booth as they get ready for Quilt Market this weekend?
It’s Winston Ways from my new book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
I’m thrilled with how well the new book is being received, it’s really been an exciting release and I love each and every page of this new book.
My feelings are that YOU DO TOO!
Every day I am getting emails telling me about the projects you’ve started, the fabrics and colors you are using, and the story behind why you chose that quilt to be your “next” project.
I thought I’d share one of those stories here with you this morning.
This is from Sherry, Fran, Debbie, Betty & Bettie!
First from all of us, we want to thank you for all do for the world of quilting. Let me tell you a little bit about all of us. The 5 of us have gotten together every year in April for the last 7 years to have a 10 day quilt retreat of our own.
We come from 5 different states: myself --Sherry New York, Debbie Ohio, Fran Virginia, Betty Arizona, and Bettie Michigan. Last year we had a challenge to make a quilt from you Midnight Flight block from Quiltmaker 100 blocks Vol.4. If I remember right its Vol 4.
We were very surprised when you posted the cover of your new book and Midnight Flight was on the cover!
Bettie’s Midnight Flight Center3 of us finished our tops. Unfortunately I was not one of them I only managed to get 1 block finished but lots of pieces. As soon as its done I'll send it along.
Debbie’s Midnight Flight!
Debbie's 2nd border was done with bonus triangles, Fran was working on an additional border during our trip. Bettie has hers without a border. We love how each one turned out. We all know that these wonderful quilts would not be possible without a wonderful designer like you.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Fran’s Midnight Flight!
Thank you ladies, for sharing your story of how these quilts came to be! They are wonderful, as is your friendship and history!
I love the motion in these quilts-- Midnight Flight is another one I hope to see hanging in the Kansas City Star booth. They wanted dynamic quilts that showed well from far away to draw people in, and I think we did good with the four we sent for Quilt Market. More photos to come!
Of course, signed copies of More Adventures with Leaders & Enders are available on my website HERE, and as always orders of 3 books or more ship free within the USA!
And if you are AT Quilt Market, would you be my eyes and ears? Send me photos of the booth and of the quilts hanging so that I can share them with everyone.
I wish I could be in Pittsburgh, but after Michigan I need a weekend home ((Yes, we are headed up to Quilt Villa tomorrow afternoon for the weekend!)) And I fly to Los Angeles on Monday. Sometimes a girl has to say no to Quilt Market no matter what fun she is missing!
Quilt Cam TONIGHT at 9pm Eastern! Come to the blog and sew with me!
This morning I am off for a much needed haircut. Not sure how short I will go, but I’m open to new horizons – another reason you won’t want to miss Quilt-Cam tonight!
Catch you then ---
