Simply Dashing in Blue Stonehenge

Gay made our Highway 10 Designs Simply Dashing quilt in twin size for her grandson.  She picked Northcotts blue Stonehenge Gradations Ombre and a solid black background. 

I quilted it with the Bayside pantograph, used black So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting. This is a gift for her grandson and he had asked for a blue, black and orange quilt.  You can see in the next picture where she put the orange! Orange Fireside for the win!

We had a lovely display of Northern Lights on Oct 12 so I was out enjoying the show with my camera.

They were still active the next morning at 6am. More purple with the sun ready to rise soon.

This got me thinking about pointing my camera up at the night sky again now that the days are shorter.  Last night I tried to capture Saturn and Jupiter and without a telescope it is pretty tricky.  I used my 600mm zoom and experimented with many different settings so I could finally see the rings on Saturn and the colour bands on Jupiter. So happy to finally capture them with my camera.
