Howdy all! Here's a fantastic program I'm involved with this year for you to check out. The Aurifil Designer of the Month is a whole bunch of awesome designers making a block each every month for you all to make and play along! AND those generous peeps at Aurifil are giving away amazing prizes as well to make all that stitching even more enjoyable.
All the designers will be stitching with gorgeous Aurifil Lana or 12 wt and using Sassy by Moda as our feature fabric. This line is new for Fall 2011 so you should be able to find it at your local or online.
January's block was made by Roseann Kermes, you can read all about her here! And this is her gorgous block.
Rosann used Aurifil 12wt for this project, here are her colours:
2260 – red
2692 – Black
2975 – dark gold
4182 – turquoise
4663 – variegated turquoise
4671 – variegated brown
5006 – lt turquoise
Cute huh? I'm going to have to get myself organised and decide what colours I'm going to stitch in - after all you can't be involved in something like this and not make all the beautiful blocks too can you??
You can hop on over to the Flickr group to see what everyone has been up to. There is a prize to be won EVERY month, and everyone who doesn't win goes into the draw for all the other months too, so you have heaps of chances to win. Make sure and get a block posted asap because the January prize will go off soon and not many people have their blocks finished!
AND tomorrow I'm going to update you on the other awesome program I'm playing in this year, the Bloggers Block of the Month which is run through Canton Village Quiltworks. I've almost gotten all my blocks up to date and I'm ready to share! See you tomorrow...
