Mahjongg #4


This is Iris’s Mahjongg quilt that she made in our guilds beginner class.   She made hers similar to Moira’s by adding the same borders and used blue and purple batiks.   The pantograph is called Joust, the batting is Quilters Dream Blend and the thread is a light blue So Fine.   These beginner quilts have turned out amazing, they have all laid nice and flat on my machine with no issues at all.


The Northern Lights were active again Tuesday night so I took a few more pictures. 


Our motion lights kept turning on behind me on the house but I was glad that it didn’t ruin my pictures, they still turned out good.  That is why the garage is lit up so much!  I love the effect the approaching clouds made across the lights at the bottom of the picture.   I also didn’t realize I had the Big Dipper centered in the shot too!



  1. Thanks for the Northern Lights pictures. We lived in Minnesota for 25 years and would go up to Leech Lake and were treated to Northern Lights. We don't get to see these in Central Florida.

  2. Wow - you take the most amazing pictures - both of quilts AND your the beautiful environment around you!

  3. I really enjoy following your blog. The combination of beautiful quilts and quilting and photography and nature makes it very special. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those pictures are really stunning and so is the quilt.

  5. I love that last Northern Lights photo where you captured the Big Dipper as well. Perfect!
