Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you had a great weekend, and your week has gotten off a great start! We pretty much chilled after having the busy week that I had last week… with LOTS of ice cream. Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day, much welcomed by Miss Baby. She had a total of 4 rounds of ice cream yesterday, starting from breakfast!
Last week wrapped up the construction portion of Thread Journey Quilt-Along on Aurifil’s blog. If you haven’t joined in the fun, and would still like to… there is time! We are having a one-month break for quilters to get caught up before diving into the quilting portion of the quilt.
Click here, here, here for Parts 1-3 of the construction of the Quilt Top. The quilt ends up finishing at approximately 54″ x 54″. It is not too daunting a task to complete the quilt top. Please send me pictures of your quilts so that I can share them with everyone!
Meanwhile, Miriam and Jody sent pictures of their quilt tops with the Ohio Star border. Look at their beautiful versions – well done, Ladies!
Meanwhile, here is another Sawtooth Star quilt pattern to share with you today… It’s my Sparkler design using Windham Fabrics’ new 30′ fabrics Feedsack. I am beginning to think something is amiss with my designing mind and Sawtooth Stars. HA!

You can purchase the kit for a limited time here.
So — are you a 30’s fabrics person?! I actually am, and have been hoarding quite a bit for myself to recreate an antique quilt. I just need a bit of extra time to get started in drafting the quilt block.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely rest of your week! Hugs to you all.
