Exploding Heart Quilt

Nancy made this fun and bold Exploding Heart quilt, pattern by Slice of Pi.  She used batik fabrics in jewel tone colours and a solid back background.

I quilted it with the Tickle pantograph, used charcoal So Fine thread and Quilters Dream poly black batting.

This is the first time I have gone to the lighthouse for quilt pictures since early spring.  It was flooding out this summer so nice to get back to my favorite photo spot.

This was the Rainy River in June.  The lighthouse was an island!

Dragon Dreams Quilts

Kim made this fun kids quilt using a pattern called Dragon Dreams by Apples and Beavers.  She actually made two, one for each of her grandsons.

I quilted them with the Ombre pantograph as it gives the look of fire because we all know dragons breath fire!

I used light beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream blend batting.  Kim brought a lovely grey Fireside for the backing and left if all in one long piece so I could load the backing once and just add the second quilt to the same backing to save time.
