How do U Use aUrifil?


This is a toUgh one, bUt, can yoU gUess which letter from the word  aUrifil is oUrs?
No?  Here's another hint....


For each day of the blog hop, we've been assigned a letter to Use in a little qUilty story of some sort.  
Well, if yoU haven't gUessed it by now....we have the letter U! 
We sUspect Pat gave this one to Us on pUrpose to see jUst how creative we can get with this lovely letter. Well Pat, hold on to yoUr seat....yoU"re in for a wild ride!


The sound of multiple sirens started closing in on us.  Suddenly Beth slammed on the brakes, cranking the steering wheel on the Lizzie B mobile to the left at the same time.  The high screech of tires pierced the air along with the stench of hot rubber skidding along the pavement in a perfect U as the car flipped around in seemingly slow motion and sped off in the opposite direction.  Leaving the cops scrambling to catch up.  We were Unstoppable!  I peeled my face off the passenger side window where it had attached itself during the turn.  Craning my head behind me I looked  to see the result of Beth's crazy yes, but skillful driving.  Pumping my hand into the air, 
"Yessss!" I screamed! "We did it!  Keep that pedal to the metal!" 
 We would have high-fived each other then, but Beth's hands were otherwise occupied,  knuckles white as they gripped the wheel in front of her.
She hooked a right, then a hard left and there it was...the Unmarked car we'd been following before running a red light....ok, maybe it was two....and catching the attention of the cruiser parked near the intersection we must have been flying through at the time.  Who knew following a quilt thief from the local quilt show parking lot would end in a high-speed chase?  But this was no ordinary stolen quilt.  No.  This was a Lizzie B quilt....the Umbrella quilt, to be exact, Happy Hawaii. 


 Believe us, you'd be in hot pursuit too after doing all that hand applique in gorgeous 50 weight Aurifil thread, perfectly matching your colorful batiks straight from the islands themselves.  
Well, wouldn't you?
Without warning, the Ugly Unmarked car in front of us haphazardly rammed to the curb and a man jumped out with a large duffle bag.  Seriously?  Why do criminals do this...think they can get away faster on foot?  
"Are you ready?"  Beth yelled above the roar of the engine. (Well, as much as a hybrid Highlander CAN roar!)
"Set!" I yelled back. As I quickly clicked open my seatbelt, and finished wrapping one of our most prized weapons loosely around my left arm, hooking my right hand above the door handle, ready to bolt.
Beth swerved the car to the right and jumped the curve.  At the same moment I pulled the door handle and it flew open.  Careening out at a run before the car had even come to a complete stop, I started hoofing it in hot pursuit of our thief.  Knowing that Beth would wait for the cops to catch up, work her magic and explain just why we'd broken about 50 traffic rules.  After all, what's the point of having a son on the force if they couldn't cut you a little slack every now and again?  I also knew it wouldn't be long until they surrounded the area with back up.  So nice working with a partner you could count on!  
Silently thanking my gym membership for allowing me countless hours on the elliptical, I ran effortlessly after the perp.  He, however, could have used a few hours a day at the gym.  His steps began to drag and his breathing became labored.  I was gaining on him!  It was time for the secret weapon.  I grabbed a length in my right hand, making sure there was enough slack, and slowly started the twirling motion.  Slowly the loop came to life, picking up speed.  The thief came to a chain linked fence at the end of an alley.  He threw his duffle with our precious quilt over the fence, and started to climb.  I saw my chance.  Lifting my hand over my head, in a continuous motion, I calculated my distance and flicked my wrist, just so.  Off it flew, like a slash of colorful paint through the sky.  My aim was perfect.  And the lasso lovingly braided from Aurifl 12 weight thread slid right over the perp's head, catching his arms.  With one great TUG I yanked him off the fence, tightening my beautiful, completely Unbreakable rope at the same time.
By the time Beth and the cops caught up to us, I had one of our trademark Dansko's firmly jammed into the small of Mr. Thief-man's back as I finished securely fastening our Aurifil rope around his wrists.
"Dang!" One of the cops said, "Remind me never to get on your bad side!  That rope thing...Unbelievable! Where did you learn that?"
Beth and I smiled at each other and shrugged.  

"You'd have to be a quilter to Understand."


Hope you enjoyed another Mis-Adventure of the Lizzie B Girls!  (for MORE Mis-Adventures, check out our eMag!) It was a fun challenge to incorporate the letter U and at the same time, use some U-inspired words to describe our favorite thread.  Leave us a comment listing what those U words are and you'll be entered to WIN some thread!  We'll announce the winners from OUR blog on Wednesday, so don't forget to comment!

  20. Y'all are awesome! I wish I can save that pattern. I can't figure out how to do that. I'll have to remember to come back here when I work on the blocks someday.

    aUrifil is ubiquious and utterly ultimate!

    I know, pathetic. But, I tried. :-)
