It's time for the May Aurifil designer of the month feature over on the Auriblog.
I'm designer of the month for May and made a bright spring colored mini quilt.
Hop over to the Aurifil site to read the interview with me and download the pattern for my mini block.
I used aurifil poly thread for for the first time when quilting this quilt and I really like it. It is strong and has a wonderful sheen. The variations in color in #5505 were just right to tie all these bright pinks, greens, and oranges together.
I love what Pat did in her version of this mini. She has a secondary design in the background squares. Go see it!
Remember, if you make one of the featured projects, take a picture and add it to the Aurifil flickr pool for a chance to win a box of thread. EACH month someone will win a big box of 12 spools of thread. That's a BIG prize! I can't wait to see all of the projects coming up this year.
