2018 Aurifil Design Team

I am pinching myself today because I can hardly believe that what I have to share is reality: I am a part of the 2018 Aurifil Design Team! I am thrilled to be working with such a creative and wonderful group next year.

Each month in 2018, one of the Aurifil Design Team will create and share a unique quilt block based on a theme. The theme for 2018 is “The Places We Go” and the blocks will be inspired by our favorite places. We will be making our blocks using black and white plus one color of our choice.

If you sew the block, each month you can enter to win a box of Aurifil thread… Each interview with the designer for the month and their pattern comes out on the 15th of the month and is published on the Aurifil blog, Auribuzz. I can’t wait to share my block with you!

If you are interested in the FREE Patterns from Prior years, see the Aurifil Designer PATTERN PAGE. To get the latest Aurifil news, sign up for the Aurifil Newsletter.

Thank you so much to Pat Sloan and Aurifil thread for this awesome and fun opportunity.
