My favorite quilt is one you hand to a small child. They usually smile shyly and carefully look it over. They run off to spread it out and study the delightful colors. It always makes me smile.
When it comes time to make a quilt for a small child, lively colors are always a hit. It is amazing what they see in the fabric patterns.
Night Flight is a darker color way of it’s sister quilt Flutterby (shown at end of post). The flowers are cut into wings that become butterflies as shown here.
The darker colors of Night Flight will defiantly handle the dragging that happens. A well-loved quilt is one of the best complements for me as a quilter.
Night flight has two different 4-patch blocks. Look closely, the outer ring of 4″ blocks is actually the first of three borders. The next border is fun large dots, great for a counting lesson. The final border uses the LakeHouse mid sized daisies as scallops.
Below is a picture from the LakeHouse Dry Goods booth at the International Quilt Market in Houston this past October. You can see Night Flight at the far right, Daisy Star in the center and Ring Around The Flowers at the far left. The Bucket Tote sits on a shelf next to Night Flight. Pocket Parade tote sits in front of Daisy Star. Vibrant Spring ornaments can be seen at the far left in the foreground.
Aside from a long arm quilting business, and making the random quilt for a small child. I am a sample maker for Holly Holderman of LakeHouse fabrics. Once in a while I get the chance to do just a bit extra. Night Flight Will hopefully become a well loved quilt to some young child, made especially for them by a loving Grandma- or Grandpa!
