Falling Charms

So starts the quilting process!

As I was thinking about the name of the quilt, Falling Charms, I began to doodle and came up with this, what I thought looked like falling charms, 

Then the next thing I had to do is figure out the porportions as to how big I wanted the charms and how far apart.  SO I began mapping it out on graph paper in my Quilter's Journal.  Each square represents
1/2 in. which makes my grid 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches
So I drew the grid onto my quilt for me to follow

And here they are being quilted....They look totally Retro don't they?


  1. Hi Shelly! I love this quilt and the quilting you have done is fabulous! It does look retro and I really love that look! What a fantastic result!! :) xx

    1. Hi Christine, It kind of took me by surprise by how I love it! hahahah Don't you love it when that happens?

  2. To me they look very modern....I absolutely love your quilt. I plan on learning from your use of marking tools to improve my quilting. You are so consistant.
