Hi I’m Pat Sloan, the Aurifil Designer of the Month coordinator. I’d so excited to introduce you to our Dynamic 2012 Aurifil Design Team! Each month one of these amazing designers will be creating a stitchery using Aurifil 12 wt thread.
The 12 stitcheries will be small and very doable. All 12 can then be put into a custom quilt design from Sherri Falls, our February artist. (sneak peeks of the layout a bit later!)
In 2012 we want to showcase our 12 wt thread for hand work. 12 wt is used for embroidery, stitchery, sashiko, big stitching quilting, and even very fine crochet! The 12 designers have designed a small stitchery picking colors they love and creating a design to reflect the month they are featured. I’ve seen some of the sketches and they are totally adorable!
Our friends at Moda fabrics have given each of the designers this “Sassy” layer cake designed by Sandy Gervais. The stitchery will be framed with some “Sassy” and the rest of the layer cake is used in the final quilt. See the fabrics in this line HERE
We invite you to meet our design team now by visiting their blogs.
Come back the first Thursday of the Month to read my interview with one of the designers and pick up the pattern for the stitchery.
Load your finished stitchery each month into the Aurifil Flickr folder. We pick a random project once a month to win a thread gift!
I’ve listed the thread to be used by the first 4 designers under their name, so you can collect the thread and be ready!
