Pat Sloan kicks off the new year with the 2014 Aurifil Designer of the Month series. As host, she’ll interview one guest per month. She’ll share their work spaces, fabric lines AND – key to their choice of quilt block – the woman who has influenced them the most as a designer. If you join the fun and sew up a block each month, you become eligible to enter a contest for some great prizes. Think thread!
January’s designer is Brigitte Heitland, who created the project, Zen Chic table runner, from her choice of quilt block, Spools and Threads. Go HERE to read the interview and get the free download to make your own block and/or runner. Brigitte is from Germany and you will absolutely love what she has to say.
Oh, and there’s more good stuff. Pat made her own version of the Spools and Threads quilt block (shown above). She shares a tutorial and tips for making it on her blog post Flip and Sew Tutorial. If you are new to quilting this information will help you achieve accurate seams, important for good results.
