Dianthus is this week's flower. Common names for Dianthus are pinks, carnations and sweet william. All names I'm sure you have heard before. As you can probably guess by the name "pink" dianthus mostly come in shades of pink. They can also be white, yellow and red.

If you are a Quilt University follower, by now you will have heard that Quilt U is going to close down by the end of the year. As my classes end at Quilt University, I will be moving them over to the Academy of Quilting. I have moved a handful already including Tote That Mat.
