Falling Charms Quilt - Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Yesterday, since it was zero all day,  I worked on the Falling Charms quilt to keep warm.  This pattern is from Missouri Star Quilt and uses charm packs and two and a half inch strips.  Yes, I know, it is not on my list for 2014.  That's because it was started in December on the retreat at Mrs. Miller's Cabin.   We all need fun and easy sometimes!

Here is the tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt:

Today Elvis would have been 79.  His image and music are now ageless and timeless.

I have to admit to being a huge Elvis fan in high school.  His picture was pasted inside my locker door.  Back in the day, QBee Mama Barb and I watched him on the Ed Sullivan Show, black and white TV, and screamed till we were hoarse.  They called it Elvis fever.  For us now, it is a good memory; one that I can relive today in celebration of Elvis' birthday.


  1. Love the charm quilt! Love Elvis too!

  2. The charm quilt look great, You are right we all need fun and easy. Stay safe and avoid the weather.
    Cheers Pauline

  3. I need to post a picture of my Falling Charms quilt. I was after I had all the borders on and took a picture that I realize there was a block turned the wrong way. I am resisting the urge to take it apart and fix it :)

  4. That would be easy to do! I worked on putting the blocks together yesterday and had to do a little un-sewing, but luckily, caught it before it was all done. Maybe I should take a picture to be sure.
