This morning I finished hand sewing the binding on the last of my charm quilts on the drive to and from church. This one is Falling Charms from a Missouri Star Quilt Co. tutorial (here).
There is a block turned on the lower right-ugh! I’m keeping this quilt so it’s not a big deal!
Here is a close-up of the quilting—and the border. I just love the way the border makes this quilt. The quilting is a pantograph called Plumage by Willow Leaf Studios.
I missed last week’s stash report so this is a two week recap. I finished five projects:
Baby Geniuses Grow Up-La France: 3 yards
Jumping Jacks-Marmalade: 3.5 yards
Jumping Jacks-Spring Song: 3.5 yards
Falling Charms-Christmas charms: 7 yards
Grandma’s quilt: 5 yards (back and binding only)
After having a few weeks with no fabric purchases I fell off the wagon this week. Some of it was jelly rolls that I need for a pattern I’m working on—I can ALWAYS justify purchasing fabric!
The weekly stash report:
Used this week: 22 yards
Used year to date: 147 yards
Purchased this week: 14
Purchased year to date: 35yards
Net year to date: 112 yards used
It’s still going down! Check out the links at Patchwork Times so see how others are doing on stash reduction.
Rhonda you had a fabulous last two weeks. The turning of the block in the corner is not noticeable…consider it something of an unexpected surprise. It makes it FUN! The way I see it as long as you are using what you are buying…go for it! Sandi
I really like the falling charms quilt, but I still have no clue as to how to lay out the blocks, I know it is a simple lay out, but I am very new to quilting, and I guess I need a “dummy” version in black and white. I have watched the video several times, and still I cannot get it correct. Please any suggestions on this beautiful pattern lay out or any black and white photos that I can use as a pattern.

I have a layout diagram in EQ. You are no-reply so I don’t have an address to send it. You may email me at email@example.com and I will forward what I have.
