    Falling Charms quilt finished

    I finally finished my Falling Charms quilt. Pattern was from Missiour Star Quilt Company. VERY easy pattern to do. I have never used this much white before in any of my quilts. I actually love how crisp and clean it looks and will probably use more white in my quilts. I went to Walmart and bought a twin sheet, white for the backing. Never done that before either. It was really nice not to have to have a seam back there to quilt over! I will do that again as well! ) So this quilt was very good to try new things!

    Thanks for looking!

    I really really like this! You did a great job, especialy choosing the white, it makes the colors pop! I like the idea of the sheet and will be trying soon.

    Love, love, love it!!! Can surely see the colors, just a nice cool quilt. I want to make one of these and wasn't sure about white either, but yours has changed my mind.

    Really nice job on this. Your colors look great and this pattern is just altogether charming. I just watched a video for this pattern yesterday and am already cutting out squares to make a lap size quilt. I'm going to try it with a dark background. I'm making it for an ailing aunt and think the dark will be more practical but it will have bright colors for the charms. I think I'll be trying one with a light background too.

    I like your quilt with the white back ground, and love the bright colors in our quilt. Thank you for sharing with us.I have tried the sheet backing before, but I hand quilt, and the sheets are tightly woven together. It makes it harder to quilt through.

    Love your quilt. The white really pops all the colors and shows off the quilting. I'm going to have to try one of those.
