Midnight Flight in Manchester!

46 women.  FORTY SIX WOMEN!!!

The more, the merrier!  And we had a great time.'

Ironing stations were set up in specific areas – no fuses were blown.  YAY!

Plenty of cutting space – tables were raised to good cutting height – that is so important to tall girls like me – it makes a world of difference.

We had quilts in every color way you could think of coming together ---just wait and see what these ladies got up to!

We had such a wonderful time, we are booking me back for 2018!

Midnight Flight, Manchester NH 2013
The block pattern for  Midnight Flight is found in volume 4 of Quiltmaker Magazine's 100 blocks.  Pretty soon Volume 7 will be released, and I'm scheduled for the blog hop of that new issue in just over a week down the road!  Be watching for that issue to come out -- it's going to be a fun one.

Midnight Flight is also making an appearance as a full quilt in my next book, so be watching for that as well.

It's a travel home day for me today, but my flight isn't until 4pm....so guess what I'll be doing? I've got a few more Wild & Goosey blocks to depaper, and I will get these block quarters sewn into as many blocks as I can before packing up to leave for the airport. Thank you, Manchester for the wonderful hospitality and the terrific time building friendships with new friends!


  1. I came from Portsmouth NH for your talk Thursday night. It was very enjoyable and informative. Your quilts are beautiful!

  2. Looks like a very fun day and the quilt is amazing!

  4. I see blocks spinning both ways. It's a wonder I can get my blocks together- I'm so Confused...as someone once said on Laugh -in...who was that? Safe Travels home and I hope to watch you on QuiltCam later this week.

  5. Yeah!!! Looking forward to the release of the new book. Love the block and all the different colors ways the ladies used are gorgeous.

    Safe flight back!

  6. Can't wait for the new book as always! So excited that you and I were working on the same block, lol! I turned around my one twisted goose this morning when I realized it was flying the wrong way. That is seriously the cutest little block I have ever made! I can see some more of those in my future!

  7. Your slideshows always make me feel as if I was right there with everybody and this one was no exception. But this time I really WAS there! Thank you so very much, Bonnie!
