Earlier this year, I was thrilled to participate in the first-ever Aurifil blog hop. Nine bloggers got together and each of us created a block and now Pat Sloan is putting together the quilt.

Now it’s time to put the quilt blocks together, choose the setting and the borders. All the FUN is over at Pat’s blog. Several of the designers are also participating, here’s the list:

And because Aurifil is such a FUN company.. they are giving away a box of Pat’s 40wt thread to a lucky person that comments on any of the blogs from July 5 to the evening of July 10. (P.S. I see some of the other designers are doing give-aways on their sites this week too!)

Looking for the original quilt blocks? You can find them all on Aurifil’s blog.

Have fun Blog Hopping!

Late to the Aurifil Party!

    All the blocks are LOVELY!
    It will be interesting to see which placement is used.
    And, FUN that Aurifil is giving away threads – who can’t use more threads…LOL!

    Fun watching Pat put it all together.

    I’ve never used Aurifil Thread before, but it looks like it would be a great thread to try.

    I love all the blocks. It is hard to pick a layout, but I like E.

    If I were making this quilt, I’d probably choose the blue colorway, while my sweetheart would want me to go with the green for more contrast. It’s so interesting to see all the options. Thanks for this great project.
