It’s truly an honor to be featured as February’s Aurifil Designer of the Month! Each month a designer shares insights with you and a free pattern for a 12″ quilt block. The name of my block is Lake Life. As a Minnesota girl, it was pretty easy to find my inspiration! Blue, this year’s color is perfect, just perfect.
I’ve also had the pleasure to work with Pat Sloan on several of her broadcasts over the years. If you didn’t know already, she is the mastermind of the program. She and Aurifil have partnered to host a giveaway for an Aurifil thread collection ($120 value). To enter, make the Lake Life block and then share a picture of it to Pat’s Aurifil Blog. I hope you win and I can’t wait to see how you make the block!! (keep reading for other chances to win….)
Head over to Auribuzz to read my interview and download the free block pattern. If you’re wondering about how to make the half-square triangles, visit my blog for a tutorial, Perfectly Pieced Half-square Triangles: Without Drawing Lines.
Aurifil has also graciously provided me with thread to host my own giveaway. There are several arenas in which you have a chance to win. But wait….Not only do you have a chance to win thread, I’m giving away Clearly Perfect Angles templates because I don’t want you to draw lines when you’re sewing 45° angles!
Here’s how it works….
1st chance: Leave a comment below on something blue that inspires you.
3rd chance: “Follow” me on Instagram AND tag a friend using hashtags #aurifilthread and #clearlyperfectangles on the picture above.
Just for you, I’m also offering a discount! Use the code AURIFIL15 to get a 15% discount at New Leaf Stitches.com
As a reminder, here’s the line-up for the whole year.
