I have a quilt hanger in the entrance to my house. I like to change the quilt that hangs there on a regular basis. Right now this is the quilt that hangs in that location.
This quilt is Night Flight. My friend Colette and I renamed this quilt, Nightmare. This quilt was made in 1998 when I had only been quilting one year. All the flying geese and triangles presented many challenges for a beginner quilter - hence the name, Nightmare!
This quilt was the second project that I participated in during the "Annual Pre-Christmas Quilt Weekend" on December 6, 1998.
The pictures below were taken that weekend and show Cyndi, Veryan, Colette, Teresa and myself with our projects. Veryan made her blocks into a table runner and had most of the quilting completed by the time the weekend was over. As you can see, Colette's piece was still at the block stage and she couldn't hold it up for the picture. I had some of my blocks together but the border was not yet together.
The top may have been finished in 1998, but it too k until 2002 to get it quilted.
