    My "Lovely" Falling Charms

    One of my aunts loves the color lavender. When the "lovely" charm pack was on sale at MSQC, I bought it thinking of making this quilt. I like the way it turned out with the color in the background. Straight line quilting--I'm just beginning to quilt on my DSM, so nothing complicated!

    I like the pattern - it's perfect for your charms. The quilting you did is just right for the pattern!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Sometimes the simple patterns are really effective....this one is a beauty. Has a lot of movement and visual interest. Well done it's a beauty. Extra points for quilting on a DSM.....it's not as easy as it looks (well for me anyway).
