Falling Off the Wagon & a Finish

It’s been a kind of busy week around here, but I do have few things to share.

First, after a couple of months of successfully avoiding falling victim to the Daily Deal emails from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, I caved a couple of times recently and ordered a few things. This was the first one:

We won’t discuss any of the other purchases. It just doesn’t seem to be necessary – they were mostly basics. Maybe I’ll post some pictures later.

I also had a finish this week. I completed the binding on Falling Charms, with some help from Amazing Amy. Here’s the front:

On Friday, I enjoyed the decor at his dentist’s office while he had a fun (NOT) procedure done:

  1. I LOVE the back of your Falling Charms quilt. I do love an “interesting” back but I am also fond of purpose and order. Your back fits really well into my strict design parameters. I may have to “borrow” your idea for inspiration when I have leftover fabric from my top. Well done!

  2. Oh, I really like the way Falling Charms turned out! It’s like two quilts in one, the back is so gorgeous! So is your block, you were busy this week!
