Happy Monday, dear Friends! I hope you all had a great Father’s Day weekend. I have to be honest, mine was a bit weird because it’s the first one my own father is no longer on this side of heaven. There was a sense of loss as I went through the day, but yet, I was comforted to know he is in heaven. Heaven has become so much more personal to me because my Dad is there.
We did have a blessed time celebrating the day with an amazing father whom Miss Baby absolutely adores!
And here we are, another new week!
I am so glad to receive a picture of Miriam sent me of the quilt center of her Thread Journey Quilt. Let’s just say Miriam didn’t waste ANY time!!! :) If you haven’t heard about my Thready Journey Quilt Along, click here for information. And the instructions to make the quilt center are posted here.
Miriam’s — SO very gorgeous, don’t you think?!!!!
You can join in the fun. And I do hope you will keep working on the project. I am working on a big giveaway for those who complete the project in a couple of months.
I also have a free pattern to share with you — for my floral-loving friends! Be sure to check out a new floral line, Charleston, released by Quilting Treasures. The following is a free to use pattern I had design to highlight the Charleston fabrics.

That’s all for now, Dear Friends. I have a date with my sewing machine tonight…. more piecing to do on my current quilt. Have a great week!
