Four Patch Charm Quilt in Shimmer


I made this sample as I was writing up my pattern for the Four Patch Charm Quilt,  I wanted to make sure I had all the measurements right!  Nice to finally have the time to pop a panto on it and get it done.   The fabric is Northcott Artisan Sprirt Shimmer Charm packs in four colorways, Pansy, Peacock, Sunglow and Hibiscus.   The pattern only calls for 3 charm packs but I bought four from Keystone Quilts when they had a buy 3 get the fourth free!  Can’t resist a sale like that!  I was able to pick and chose the colours I wanted with the four packages.   The background is a white Colorworks, I find this line of solids nicer than Kona solids as it has a finer weave and less fraying. 


I chose the Wave on Wave pantograph as it is one of my favorites.   Used white So Fine thread and Dream Blend batting.


I was out again taking pictures of the eagles, they have been very cooperative this summer!
