Have you started your Aurifil Stitchery block for January?

Roseann Kermes, of Rosebud’s Cottage is the Aurifil designer for January and her Snowbird, below, makes a lovely start to the 2012 Designer program.

Snowbird by Roseann Kermes, 2012 Aurifil Designer of the Month for January

 Once again, Pat Sloan has invited 12 designers to each produce a free pattern using Aurifil threads.  This year the patterns are for small embroideries using the Cotton Mako’ 12 thread and they will coordinate so that, by the end of the year, you will have the makings for a lovely embroidered quilt.  

Not only are the patterns FREE, but you have the chance to win prizes from Aurifil each month. All you have to do, to enter for a chance to win, is to upload a photo of your finished block to the Aurifil Flickr page

One designer and, their pattern, will be featured each month throughout 2012 so be sure to visit  the Auribuzz blog regularly, to read Pat’s interview with the featured designer and collect their pattern.

The designer’s were each given a Moda Layer cake featuring the “Sassy” fabric range, by Sandy Gervais, to use as the starting point for their designs so the thread colours have all been selected to coordinate with this palette.

If you wish to use the these thread colours visit our online store where we will have thread kits for the designs each month.

We, that is the staff at Always Quilting, are looking forward to seeing your blocks on the Flickr page.

We will also be embroidering our own sets, so watch for our updates here on this blog throughout the year.
