FREE PATTERN: Charleston

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, Charlestonreleased 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!
