First-Ever Aurifil Blog Hop with Prizes and Nine Free Block Patterns

I’m so excited to be one of the featured blogs for the first-ever Aurifil Blog Hop happening this week. The blog hop is being organized by Pat Sloan, so you just know it’s going to be lots of fun!

There are nine bloggers participating and we’ve all designed a block just for you. The blocks will finish at 9″ and will be set on-point. The finished quilt measures 54″ square.

Of course, there are lots of prizes to be won too. Leave a comment on each participating blog on their special day for a chance to win 5-packs of each of the Aurifil threads and a grand prize of Pat Sloan’s thread collection.

Grab the block patterns and leave a comment. Here are the dates and participating bloggers:

There’s a Flickr group too where you can share the blocks you’ve made.

See you on Thursday for my special day! Happy Hopping!

    I love Aurifil thread and try to buy one or 2 spools everytime I go to the quilt store. That way I can build up my collection and it doesn’t seem to cost so must all at once.

    i can’t wait to see the finished quilt ! It’s so fun ! AND i love ,love, love Aurifil !!

  16. Jennifer O'Riordan says:

    Each block in this collection is so different. It will be fun to put them together. I like this block. It looks like a miniature quilt all by itself, with tiny borders. It’s the kind of precise sewing where the Aurifil thread, which I’ve read doesn’t bulk up seam allowances, would be a help.

  17. Linda says:

    Can’t wait to get the blocks all collected, then pieced. What a fun idea!

  18. Linda says:

    I’m looking forward to having some time to start making all of the wonderful blocks-Aurifil thread is the best!

  19. bingobonie says:

    Thanks for sharing the Flicker Group link – this is the first I’ve heard of such. Always so fun to see sew-n-tell! :)

    I’ve never used Aurifil before but everyone I know that has said that once they got it in their hands they never used anything else. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
