We are thrilled to enter into our third year as a sponsor of the Quilter’s Planner. It has been such a delight to work with this amazing collection of artists and designers. Many of them are Aurifil Artisans and Designers and we are so grateful to have this extra way to herald and support their work!
Over the years, we have learned so much and man are we more organized! There is something so satisfying about keeping it old-school and getting to plot out our magnificent plans and actually cross things off our to-do lists!
We had a blast with the 2018 planner — it kept us happy and sane and gave us a fabulous Block of the Month quilt. Three of us — Erin, Hilary, and Kate — started sewing along and we promise we’ll catch up someday soon;). We’ve been chomping at the bit for the 2019 release — more fun to plan!
The 2019 Planner will again feature a slew of things you know and love — from weekly and monthly calendar pages and to spots for all your keep-me-in-line to-do lists to project and deadline planning pages to a handy reference section and a pocket for storage. This planner is multi-talented.
This time, there are two featured cover options — floral or orange peel.
There are 12 monthly blocks featured in a new sampler quilt pattern by Cheryl Brickey of Meadowmist Designs (also an Aurifil Artisan). The book also includes a full-color glossy companion magazine with 12 quilting and sewing patterns by top designers in our industry. Featured designer Camille Roskelley (an Aurifil Designer and Fabric Designer for Moda) offers an added bonus of 4 pages of planner stickers. Aurifil Artisan Kitty Wilkin of Night Quilter again lends her fabulous photography to the whole project. If you’ve seen our latest thread images, you know we love her work!
There are extra yearly goal planning pages, color theory tips and charts, and a whole slew of graph paper to plot out your quilty genius for the year.
All in all, we think this book will be one of your go-to tools for the year.
If you’re sewing along, keep an eye out for some fab goal-reaching giveaways including a variety of Aurifil’s coveted thread sets. And, if you’d like to order your own copy (or grab some extra accessories) — head here. We’ll be sewing along with you!
