Four Patch Charm Quilt #2


This is Wendy’s Four Patch Charm Quilt and she made it using my tutorial here.  This is actually her second Four Patch quilt and you can see the her first one here.  This time she used shades of blues and beiges for her charm squares and a lighter beige background.  Wendy asked for the same pantograph design, Deja Vu, and brought a cream coloured Minkie backing.   I used a light beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting instead of Puff this time and it worked out very well.


We had a lot of snow fall yesterday, about 15 to 20cm so I had a lot of shovelling to do before getting my pictures.  Here is the before shot at sunrise.

First I had to shovel a path to the lake


…then shovelled and swept the rink.  Good workout!

Now it’s time to get back to my last client quilt for the year and it’s a beauty!


  1. I LOVE this quilt, and your quilting design is perfect!

  2. Beautiful quilt, and the quilting is superb. It looks cold, much like here :) Love our bright sunny days.

  3. I really like how she extended the corners into the borders. Lovely quilt.

  4. Lovely quilting and breathtaking scenery. I can hardly wait to get some snow here. Lots of gray and drizzle but not quite cold enough for the pretty white stuff yet.

  5. What a beauty! And love the pictures of your rink--brings back memories of my childhood lakeside home in Maine.
