Today we are excited to share the next showcase post for our 2020 – 2021 team of Aurifil Artisans! This might be one of our favorite posts of the month because it allows us to share the gorgeous projects our Artisans have been working on throughout the month. November’s theme is Hand Quilting, and our Artisans used our
28wt, 12wt, and Aurifloss threads expertly in their creations. 😍

Sarah Ruiz – “This quilt features long lines of hand quilting using two shades of Aurifil 12 wt thread. The 12 wt was the perfect thickness to make the hand quilting easy-ish while also making sure that all those stitches stand out and provide the element of texture I was looking for.”
Steph Skardal – “I completed a hand quilted lap-sized quilt using Aurifil 12wt thread! The quilt featuring an original design with nested drunkard path curves and unusual colors that I enjoy mixing.”
Kymona Tracey – “Aurifil’s Floss is perfect for texture and dimension, which you see and feel throughout my new quilted travel roll. This month’s challenge is hand quilting, and I have to admit it is so much fun and therapeutic. I created this quilted travel roll anticipating when I can travel again.”
Madeline Bonner – “I have really enjoyed some slow stitching this month with the perfect Aurifil Artisan challenge. Hand quilting is a wonderful process and I really enjoyed using these gorgeous variegated threads. They complemented my Liberty Lawns and Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Solids.”
Alison Holt – “Velvet printed panels of original embroidery by Alison Holt. Hand quilted and made into a sumptuous cushion.”
Amy Ball – “I packed lots of gorgeous Aurifil colours (pine is officially my new favourite colour) and textured hand quilting into this one block Christmas cushion.”
Jamie – “I went with something small for this months hand quilting challenge – some house slippers! Sewed these up with Aurifil 50wt, which is my new jam, but went off my normal 50wt ant trail when it came to the quilting and used Aurifil 28wt in a wonderful chartreuse-y green.”
Shannon Fraser – “Up the hygge factor this holiday season with a hand quilted Shattered Star pillow!”
Lucy Engels – “This Naive Melody wallhanging uses 28wt thread in various colours on a 1″ grid. Adding just the right amount of pop and texture to the background.”
Jennie Pickett – “I loved finishing this mini quilt top hand quilting with Aurifil 12wt. I am not every practiced with hand quilting but the more I worked on it the more I enjoyed it and my results!”
Allie McCathren – “I used 12wt Aurifil thread to handquilt a modern sampler quilt. I love the thickness of the 12wt, and also how soft and easy it is to work with. The thread I used is color 2975. It appears metallic gold with a nice sheen, but is 100% cotton and very soft.”
Chris English – “Hacked nine patch quilt with hand quilting using 12 wt thread.”
Paula Steel – “My first go at Hand Quilting, using a rainbow of 12wt Aurifil Thread. I chose to recreate the Rainbow Star purse from my book ‘Modern Rainbow Patchwork Quilts’. I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge, despite my usual reluctance to hand stitching, I may now be a mini convert.”
Erin Kroeker – “I used 12wt Aurifil thread to add some gorgeous hand quilted details to my latest quilt pattern, the Landmark Quilt. I decided to match my thread to the fabric for a subtle, yet effective detail!”
Martha Woollard – “I figure why use just one thread, when there are so many gorgeous colours to choose from? I hand quilted all the flower stems and grasses, using a variety of colours and shades of 12wt thread. The fairly dense quilting gives a lovely texture, so this pouch is a pleasure to use.”
We hope that our artisans have inspired you to try out some of our heavier weights of thread for hand quilting!

I love to see projects that have been hand quilted. I love the look and feel of a hand-quilted quilt. Thanks for this new showcase, I hope there will be more in the future.
