In November, I shared my excitement about being included in the 2018 Aurifil Design Team. Today, I get to share my block and design!
The theme this year is ‘The Places We Go’ and the palette is Black and White and a Color.
When thinking about my favorite place to go, driving California State Route 1 along the Pacific Ocean is one of my favorite things to do with my husband. Heading north on SR1 and crossing over Bixby Bridge, an iconic structure just north of Big Sur, marks the passage from coastal drive back into urban living.
You can read an interview with me and get more details on the inspiration for the Bixby Bridge Block on the Aurifil Blog today. If you make a version of the block and add it to the link up, you can be in with the chance of winning an Aurifil thread box! All the details are in the Aurifil blog post.
The first version of the Bixby Bridge Block, shown above, has been mailed off to Pat Sloan, who is hosting the Block of the Month program. She will be taking all the blocks mailed in from the designers to create a final layout early in 2019. As I am sewing along as well this year, I made a second version to add to my growing collection of blocks. I’m enjoying the spread of accent colors used for the blocks so far this year.
Are you sewing along? All the blocks in the Aurifil BOM programm (and all the previous years) are free patterns available on the Aurifil blog. I look forward to seeing your versions of the Bixby Bridge Block!
