Hey Everyone!  It’s Monday…….and you know what that means. It’s Main Crush Monday or #MCM. It’s also the first Monday in June. Can you believe it?  This past winter when the snow wouldn’t stop falling and our temperatures plummeted, I didn’t think June would ever get here. But here we are- woohoo!!

My crush today is quilt related, but it will take me a minute to get there. Hang in there, I promise you’ll see where this is going!

Since today is the first Monday of the month, my #MCM is the month of June. For our family, June means lots  of things:

My Pool

Hot summer days mean pool time!

  • family time,
  • impromptu get-togethers with my children and their families,
  • flowers (I’m no gardener, but I try every year),


    Pretty Zinnias!

  • cutting the grass,
  • walking barefoot outside
  • Watching the gold finches and hummingbirds
  • And many other things

I think it’s the best month ever. All of the above relaxes me and takes away the daily stresses which allows me to have fun with my sewing. It lets the creative side of myself come out.  Even though summer is a busy time, I still find time to sew. It’s my calm.

My calm.....

My calm…..

What is your calm?

So, all this brings me to this gorgeous Charm Pack – fleurologie by Moda:


I want to make placemats to use on our outdoor table and I think the patterns in this pack are perfect!  I’ve had a couple of these charm packs in my stash for a little while and I knew I would find something to use them for. (That’s what a stash is for, right?) 🙂

Look at these prints:

Such pretty patterns!

I don’t have a placemat pattern, but I think I’m going to do a 6 patch block, just to show off the designs and colors of the fabrics.  What do you think?  I could even piece the front and back to show off more of the fabric.  Ideas?

I can’t wait to get started and then see them on our table.  Makes you want to drink lemonade and eat homemade ice cream, doesn’t it?

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  Meanwhile, I would love to hear from you – what are you crushing on today?
