Four Patch Charm Quilt in Batiks

Brigitt made my Four Patch Charm quilt for a teenage girl and used beautiful blue, green and purple batiks!   You can find this pattern free on my sidebar.  Brigitt didn't use Charm packs but cut her squares out of yardage so made them bigger!  Her blocks ended up measuring 7 1/2" and the final quilt was 76" x 81".  So if you have been wanting to make this pattern but a bit larger that is one way to do it!

I quilted it with the Tickle pantograph, used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream white 80/20.

Brigitt brought this gorgeous blue Bliss backing by Northcott! 

On Friday it was 25'c and sunny so we headed out to Sable Islands Provincial Nature Preserve on Lake of the Woods.  Its only an hour drive from our house. We had heard about this area a few years ago but had no idea how to get there by kayak. It turns out they is only one public launch spot close to it and it is very well hidden, probably a local secret! :)  It is a beautiful long sandy esker island in very shallow water so perfect to kayak too. We are trying to make the best of our short summers before weather turns cool!

We kayaking about 8km along its shoreline and only saw one other family.
