Fall Batik exchange quilt

In my last blog post, all the quilts in the Hearts and Hands exchange are shown.  Here are a few more pictures of my quilt the right way up as well as closeup photos of the spectacular quilting job by Cathy Shepherd of Eagles Wings Quilts. The pattern is Four Patch Charm Quilt by Tamarack Shack.  She used a technique to make the blocks from a Missouri Star you tube video.  I have enough fabrics left to make another one of these quilts..perhaps I will do a different layout with the blocks.  The binding is done with 12" strips of all the fabrics. (Click on the photos for a larger picture.)

My quilt right side up :-)

I thought the photo above looked a little pale so I took it outside to take a few more photos of it :-)

Some of the original fabrics - 2nd from left in the 2nd row is the focus fabric and the one beside it on the left was my contribution to the mix

I found this lovely wide backing fabric which is also a batik
