I don't know about you, but ALL this talk about Aurifil all week has been makeing me want to SEW!
Haha...I guess that's the idea right? Has anyone finished any of the blocks? Did you know there's a flickr group you can upload pics of your squares so we can ALL see them?

I HAVE been sewing with Aurifil all week....just doing a little hand stitching.
Actually, a LITTLE? Ok, a LOT. I'm making about a MILLION handmade yo-yo's...
Beth and I fell in LOVE with Amy Butler's "Bloom Quilt" at market.
Made with her new line Soul Blossoms
So we decided we HAD to make it!
100 yds of fabric later and about a zillion yo-yo's....ok, maybe that's an exaggeration, but that's what it feels like! Actually, making pizza pan sized yo-yo's is strangely relaxing at the end of the day.
Especially when you use our fav thread that DOESN'T break!
But this morning I decided I need some time at the machine. So I cut out a little fabric!
Trying a little mono-chromatic experiment. Going to whip together our Take it Easy Baby quilt but in these colors. I think we might have to change the name to the Sweetheart Quilt after it's done, don't you think it'll be sweet?
I like to stitch up my pieces with this 50 wt neutral Aurifil thread. It's SEW spectacular !
Makes such perfect little seams! (Ok, the straight lines are up to you!)
So I'm going to go finish whipping this little baby up. Hopefully I'll have pics tomorrow!
But since sewing with Aurifil puts as ALL in such a happy mood.....
Let's do another GIVEAWAY today!
Here's what ya need to do to be entered into the drawing....answer this one question:
If you had to make a mono-chromatic quilt,
which color would you choose?
I know, HARD question, huh? How can you just pick ONE color? But remember, mono-chromatic means ALL the colors in that ONE color's range. So go ahead and pick one!
Who knows? Maybe you'll win a spool of thread that matches your fav!
*WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY*
