January Aurifil Designer of the Month: Katja Marek

As I mentioned in early November, I am thrilled to be on the 2018 Aurifil Design Team. 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.

The interview by Pat Sloan and block for January designed by Katja Marek was released on the Aurifil blog yesterday: Aurifil 2018 January Designer of the Month Katja Marek.

Katja’s latest book is all about Dresdens, and her block design for January is no exception!

Each month one random winner is selected to receive a 12 spool BOX of Aurifil thread for just making the challenge block and sharing it. All details for how to make Katja’s block and how to enter to win a large spool box of Aurifil thread can be found on Aurifil’s Auribuzz blog.

I am going to consider my fabric selections. I have a very busy few months ahead of me, and perhaps having this block ready for some hand sewing in the down moments will be just the ticket.

Are you going to sew along this year?


I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
