Aurifil Blog Hop - The Letter L

I was LUCKY to be asked by Pat Sloan to participate in the Aurifil blog hop.  But then everyone that visits all of the participating blogs are lucky as they also get a free pattern and a chance to win some yummy Aurifil thread.  As, I am the last of this blog hop, I was also asked to think about the letter "L".  Hmm.  What creative and inspirational insights would you come up with for the letter "L"?


LEARNING is fun!  And when it keeps our creative juices flowing, it is even more fun.  So, I want to confess that I'm truly a new convert to Aurifil thread. I heard from Kelly Jackson (IHAN), Pat Sloan, Sarah Vedeler, and many others how wonderful Aurifil thread was.  But it was when my friend, Nini Frank gave me a spool of thread that I began to try it and quickly fell in love with it.  I've used it for piecing, free-motion quilting, machine embroidery, threadplay and more. And, in every case I've found it to stitch out with ease and always looks great.   This was definitely a positive learning experience. 

LEISURE time is something we all want more of but can't buy.  Using Aurifil definitely makes my leisure time more fun!

I LOVE color.  And, Aurifil comes in some yummy colors.  I definitely need more color in my life, aka I need more Aurifil too!

LOFT seems to be getting thinner lately.  Hard to believe, but I remember making quilts in the 70's when I wanted them so thick & fluffy that I actually used two layers of batting on some quilts.  OMG they were hand quilted too!  I am truly happy to see all the new battings that have a low loft.  And, Aurifil really does a great job quilting regardless of the loft.

LAVENDER is a yummy color.  And, I wish I had a spool of Aurifil Lavender for the block I made to share with you.  But, I think it is still cute, even without Lavender Aurifil thread.


In general, I don't have LUXURIOUS taste, except for quality thread and fabric.  Aurifil definitely is a luxurious thread.


LINT is something that builds up in our sewing machines and we need to remember to clean out on a regular basis.  And, I must admit using 100% cotton Aurifil threads stitch out beautifully.  I haven't noticed more lint when sewing or quilting using Aurifil, if anything less.  But as I typically do machine embroidery with non-cotton or blends, I have seen a bit more lint when doing ME work.  On the other hand, the quality of Aurifil and beauty is well worth it for ME projects as they look spectacular with Aurifil.    First 100% cotton thread that I've seen able of handling high speed machine embroidery (doesn't break while doing ME).   

I had oodles of ideas to create blocks for this blog hop, but somehow the amazing colors of Aurifil thread just called out to me to do some ThreadPlay.  And I decided to create an applique block that could be created using standard templates, or with the AccuQuilt GO! and the GO! Rose of Sharon dies.  This design is adaptable to machine applique, needle turn, or freezer paper.  But, I must admit I had fun using Aurifil threads for some fun threadplay on this block designed to go on point.



If you want instructions to make this block click here.  It also has some simple insights on ThreadPlay embellishment.  The utility that I used to upload the file allows for a free download.  After you click the link you may need to scroll down slightly and you'll see a button that says download.  It is free.


This blog hop started February 21st and today, Kelly Jackson (IHAN) and SewCalGal are the final stops on this hop.  Nine blogs have participated, each sharing a free block pattern and a giveaway for a 5 pack of Aurifil Thread.  Plus, Pat Sloan will be giving away a lovely kit of Aurifil thread to one lucky winner. 

If you haven't yet visited all the blogs in this Aurifil blog hop, I recommend you go visit them and look for their post on this hop ASAP.

I love Aurifil thread especially for hand-piecing and quilting, it doesn't tangle and the colors are fantastic. I've only used the 50wt so far am hoping to try some 40,28 and 12wt soon. Thank-you for the pattern I have the GO! Rose of Sharon dies which I'll use.

I love the 50 wt Aurifil thread for English paperpiecing! The thread melts into the fabric so the piecing is invisible. Excellent thread!

Thank you for the lovey block and your participation in this hop. I am hoping to pick up some Aurifil thread at the IX Center in Cleveland, OHio at the Sewing and Quilting Expo in March. Hopefully they will have all the different weights so I can buy some to experiment with.

krisgray said...

I've hears such wonderful things about this thread - would love to try it. Alas, my LQS doesn't carry it.

Mommarock said...

What a cute block! I know what you mean about LOFT. I have one of those high loft quilts.. one that is a UFO.. from oh.. I think the 90s.. and I don't want to finish hand quilting it.. and machine quilting it.. I don't think so.. and for some silly reason I thought I would quilt the tiniest little details in the thing.. (faint)..live and learn

Tiff Blakey said...

Great block. After this hop I really need to try Aurifil!

Joanne Lendaro said...

Great post! I remember all of that "loft", lol!! AND it would be LOTS of fun to have a Limitless supply of the Legionary Aurafil thread!!

Thanks for being part of this give-away. Your block is wonderful and it will play with the others very nicely I think, thank you! I am new to Aurifil thread about 2 weeks ago I tried to get it locally but cannot so I have to wait to get it off of the puter but thank the Lord that I can anyway I tired a white spool that a friend gave me and my machine loves it and as far as I can tell I like it to. I would love to try other colors so please add me to your draw. Have a wonderful weekend.

Robin said...

Thanks for sharing about the lint problem. It's easier to believe the praise if the drawbacks are also presented. I'm sure it is no worse than the thread I use now and if that is the only downside I will definitely be trying this thread! They sure do have a multitude of colors. Thanks for the pattern!

piece peace said...

I have to applique more. It always looks so nice. This thread looks great. I will have to try some of it soon.

justducky65 said...

L is for luscious and that's what I thought after seeing the color chart on your post. It's like having all the colors on the DMC chart - addicting and satisfying to collect them all.

Love the embellishment with the thread on your posies - it's something I think I am going to try.

thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

Tiffany said...

My mom is still a firm believer in high loft batting. She likes her quilts to be very puffy. Needless to say, she has never tried machine quilting and low loft battings are GREAT!
I would love a chance to try out some Aurifil thread!

Sharon said...

Your thread play is a beaut.

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

I use Aurifil thread for machine applique. It was recommended for bobbin thread when doing invisible applique. The other weights and threads just didn't work right, tension wise. Aurifil worked right the first time.

Amy said...

Your block is Lovely!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Ann said...

I love your block, especially the use of threads. I've enjoyed using Aurifil threads for years and it would be great to win the giveaway and add more colors to my stash. Thanks!

Aida said...

I've only tried Aurifil for piecing, but have been inspired by all the bloggers. I would love to win some other weights to try!

Rosyquilter said...

Lint free is a great advantage to Aurifil thread. I buy it in cones and have all the basic colours but would love to add some fun colours to my collection. It is the best for filling your bobbin... you get way more miles of thread on there than with ordinary thread.

Joanna said...

Love your square. Thank you.

And I really love Aurifil threads, too. Use it for piecing, machine quilting, and a bit of hand applique. It never seems to snag or pull. Love it!

Joanna

sewbeit said...

I just recently tried the Aurafil 50 wt for needle turn applique and could not believe the difference thread quality could make! Made me a believer! I would be so delighted to win even one spool of this awesome thread!

Love Aurifil thread! Love your block! Love your thoughts on the letter L - cute. Yea, I remember when quilts were supposed to be real lofty. Thank goodness that has passed. Would love to win some Luscious Aurifil thread.
