Canadian Summer QAL Week 9 West Point Lighthouse Block

Welcome to week 9 in the Canadian Summer Quilt Along! This week’s block is the West Point Lighthouse Block designed by Anita of Daydreams of Quilts! (That’s me!)

I didn’t really think of this when I made the quilt along schedule but yesterday was our 18th wedding anniversary. We went to Prince Edward Island for our honeymoon and one of the places we visited was the West Point Lighthouse. So it’s a fun coincidence that I am releasing this block the day after our anniversary. PEI is one of my most favourite places on earth! I have been there three times and really hope to get back again soon.

An unquilted shot of the West Point Lighthouse block so you can see the prints. The sandpiper and seagull fabrics were actually purchased in PEI on our honeymoon 18 years ago! Can you believe it!? It’s true! Talk about treasured fabric stash. 🙂

Glad I could help represent the East Coast in this quilt along! Even though I’m an Albertan, I do love PEI and I lived in New Brunswick for four years too.

This lighthouse pattern is a free download from my shop so head over there and get your copy. I can’t wait to see the lighthouses pop up this week. Post your lighthouse in the hashtag #canadiansummerqal on Instagram for a chance to win a selection of four fat quarters of Flourish from the Daydreams of Quilts shop.
