One afternoon a few years ago I ran out of thread. Usually I buy a lot at a time so this doesn't happen in the middle of the night, but this time I just happened to completely run out. I hurried over to my closest local quilt shop before they closed and since they didn't have the kind I usually bought, I bought my first spool of Aurifil white thread and headed home.
It was love at first stitch. And I never went back.
Just ask my friends that come over to sew. They've all converted too, and love Aurifil as much as I do. Or, you know, almost as much. ;-) I really love thread.
Last Quilt Market I met up with Alex Veronelli from Aurifil and discussed putting together a collection of my favorite threads. And I am so, SO excited to show it to you!
Red, light aqua, lime, teal, orange, yellow, medium aqua, gray, coral, pink, navy, and my favorite white. All my favorite colors in one box. And yes, this would go perfectly with all of our collections from Bliss to Scrumptious. Not to mention all those scrappy projects I've been making lately. I love these colors, can you tell?
Now the details... It will be available in local quilt shops and online soon, and is available for pre-order in my shop too. There are two sizes, a smaller box with 10 colors (less one aqua and one pink) in 220 yd spools
and a larger box with all 12 colors in 1422 yd spools.
They are all 50 wt (the weight I use for piecing, quilting, applique and binding) and 100% cotton. Aurifil is made in Italy and it's dreamy to sew with. Trust me.
I may have taken too many photos...
Can you blame me?
