Aurifil Chubby Churn Dash Mini

Today's post brought to you by the lovely folks at Aurifil. No, not really at all.

But it is all about how much I love my Aurifil!

I am so glad to continue Fig Tree's partnership with my favorite thread company! I really can't say enough wonderful things about their threads, their colors, their quality and how lovely it is to work with the classy folks at Aurifil. Thank you Alex, Elena, Kim,  Dario and everyone else!

Besides working on some new goodies together, today I also happen to be be this month's AURIFIL DESIGNER OF THE MONTH! And I have had so much fun dreaming up this month's MINI!

Click HERE for more info, a really fun interview and a lot of great Fig Tree pics.

Inspired by the Fig Tree version of the Aurifil rainbow, I started working on this month's AURIFIL MINI QUILT. I played around with a bunch of different options but quickly settled on this one once I dreamt it up. I really love how it turned out and I really do think that the moment my next set of deadlines is done, I am going to work on a full size version...

Our AURIFIL collection

"A little box of jewels..."

"Sherberts good enough to eat.

"Better than dessert!"

"Yum!"

"Creamsicle colors and then some!"

These are all things that our customers said when they saw ou brand new AURIFIL thread collection for the first time at Market in Pittsburch this past May. I am not kidding! I wrote them down so that I could use them later.

If you had to, how would you describe them?

We are so pleased to announce that we have partnered with AURIFIL to bring you all of your favorite Fig Tree colors in one place... in thread!

And not just in thread, but in our favorite thread ever!

Read a bit more about that HERE on the MODA Blog.

Now doesn't that just make you want to sew?

Threads that start with our favorite #2000 neutral cream piecing thread and work their way through the entire Fig Tree color spectrum, this collection is a perfect gift to yourself. It really is! I felt that way the first time I opened the box and unwrapped each spool. Oh the happiness!

I know it feels like a lot to lay out for thread all at one time but believe it or not the threads are actually quite a bit less expensive when purchased like this in a collection... its like getting several of the threads for free. Plus you have this wonderful place to store all that goodness in one place.

Just in case you needed a bit of convincing :-).

Our brand new "AURIKIT"!

SomersetswatchesblogFresh Figs

We are so happy to announce that we have partnered with AURIFIL threads to bring you some amazing Fig Tree goodies!

Today I wanted to share with you a little bit about the "AURIKIT" we have [ tomorrow I will tell you a bit more about the large FIG TREE THREAD COLLECTION too] designed with the amazing folks over at Aurifil and MODA!

Thank you so much Alex, Kim and Lissa!

I think this all started two markets ago and it just took a bit of time to get all the logistics worked out. The little "Aurikit" box contains (7) threads of AURIFIL thread, a 2 1/2" mini charm of Somerset fabric and a free pattern that you see pictured on the cover of the box. The threads all match the main colors in the Somerset collection of course [both the kit and the Somerset fabrics are due out in stores in September, '14].

It really is a box full of lovely goodness all in one place!

Well as soon as we finished working on the box, the threads and the pattern, I dreamt up a little contest for you all!  I thought it would be a fun opportunity to do a special promotion and seemed like a perfect time to do a design contest so that all of you could join in the fun!
