Aurifil Giveaway

I hope everyone had happy, healthy holidays.

Let's start off the New Year in a fun way with a giveaway, sponsored by Aurifil threads!  Alex Veronelli, Product Manager for Aurifil, sent me an assortment of threads to giveaway, so I'll be giving away three bundles this time and another three next month.  Sound good?  (Incidentally, Alex just gave an interview about Aurifil threads over at Jolly Jabber - make sure to check it out.  Did you know that Aurifil threads are produced in an environmentally friendly way?)



To enter please leave comment on this post telling me about some quilty-related item that you are excited about creating this year or some product or new fabric line that you can't wait to use.  (Please become a follower if you aren't already.)  Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you should you win!

The deadline is this Friday, January 6th, at midnight.

Happy New Year with lots of sewing!
Amanda

I would LOVE to try some Aurifil thread!

Hi Amanda,
I read Alex's Jolly Jabber Interview. Aurifil sounds like a quilters dream come true. I am working on a King Size Quilt for my sister in law and will be Free Motion Quilting it. This thread would be wonderful to work with! Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh... this year I am excited about two projects I want to realize... first a scrap quilt with leftovers from other fabrics to reduce my stash (at least i want to start it, but I already have a lot of little fabric pieces, all 6x6 cm... and got a lot of little fabric pieces as gifts from friends too)... and second I participate in the crazy quilt journal project 2012... it is easier for me to start / work with other peoples and "social deadlines" than alone...

So for both projects the thread would be a great ad! :)

I'm excited to make an i-spy quilt for my little guy, along with whatever other sewing projects I can squeeze in :) Thanks for the giveaway!

I just tried Aurifil for the first time on a Christmas quilt. I did some heavy free motion quilting and it was fabulous to work with. I want to explore the possibilities with all the different weights and types of thread. Thanks so much for great blog and the giveaway.

I have fallen in love with Jane Dixon's Primitiva Collection, and would love to make a lap quilt with it. I love Aurifil thread for all my peicing work.

I read the Jolly Jabber interview. Ok now I know I need this thread! Actually I have heard nothing but wonderful things about it on the blogs I read.

This would be so wonderful to try Aurufil; so many bloggers seem to love it. Thank you for the opportunity. I am super excited to finish my brother's quilt that was supposed to be finished by Christmas - old lousy sewing machine finally broke, but as of yesterday, I have a new wonderful machine. So, I can't wait to get started. Quilt is a design by Weeks and Ringle. Lots of project ideas after that! Oh, and I am now a follower - thanks for the time you put into blogging. :-)

I am looking forward to a great year of quilting! I am planning to finish several quilts since I recently learned to do long arm quilting at my local quilt store. I'm also planning some new quilts, the first will be of deep jewel tone Kaffe Fassett fabrics for my Mom. I love Aurifil thread - I've been using it for piecing for a few years. It is almost lint-free and is so fine my bobbin lasts a long time.

I loved to read the interview. I think it's just great that manufacturers produce in an environmentally friendly way and set an example that it is possible.
I'm looking forward to using some Aurifil wool thread I treated myself to because I did a workshop 'working with wool'. We got Aurifil wool thread to use and I loved i, both the thread and the fabric :-)
Thank you for this give away (and oh yes, I'm a follower already)

I want to finish up some of my ufos, such as the first quilt I made. I lost touch with the friend I was making it for and just found her after 5 years! I also want to make placemats for my MIL, for each season of the year. My list could go on and on!
I love piecing with Auriful. I try to keep a spool of light gray and a light beige tone. They blend with most any projects...which I'm not so sure matters in piecing anyway.
I'd love to try some of the colored threads for FMQ on my regular sewing machine...which is the only way I can quilt lol. I am very environmental and will have to read that interview! Thanks for the chance for the threads.

I was wondering if this would be the year I start quilting, but I think since my kids are growing into toddlers - you know, the high-maintenance stage - I will put that notion on hold for a few years. What I would like to do, however, is to make a book that is like a collection of super-mini I-Spy quilts. It would be a smaller project and I could add pages as time went on. Thanks for the giveaway. :) C

Right now in beginning of this new year I have an adventurous list of what I want to do this year and the main this is to work on new techniques - hexes, y-seam, cording, etc., in addition to sewing some badly needed clothes. Sure could use some great thread! Thanks.

Yeah! Made in italy! I've been watching the euro situation and just bought some for piecing...because it is made in Italy. It is a great thread and they certainly deserve our business. Would love to win this collection; the colors are great!

aurifil thread is the best! My gosh I have so many quilty plans. I am doing 3 BOM's for the first time, want to use up fabric though I don't have many scraps, have seen several quilts on different blogs that I wish to make as well. Should be a busy productive year.

 
At January 3, 2012 at 6:21 PM , Blogger Penny said...

Can you believe that I'm dreaming of Christmas fabric? After all the pressure is off, I think about what I really wanted to make and didn't have the time or inclination to get started on. So I organized my fabrics by color and saw that most of my stash is red and green. What does that say about me?

 
At January 3, 2012 at 6:34 PM , Blogger LJ said...

I am going to really work on my Free Motion Quilting this year - that means lots of thread use so the Aurifil would be fantastic! I do want to use different threads to see what works well and the different effects that can result.

One quilty item that I'm excited about this year is making a special quilt for my boyfriend. I'm going to use blues and greens (his fav colors) but I want to find "manly" fabrics - no flowers! No matter how small the flowery print is! I'm going to try a pattern with 60 degree triangles too. I hope he likes it :) It's going to be a secret house warming gift since he may be moving to a new apartment if he gets a new job that he is trying for! :)

I made a resolution that I would not buy any more thread this year since I had about 200 spools in about every color under and in the rainbow. I plan to use them all to piece my quilt tops with this year...even if it doesn't match! So I need more thread!!!! I love the variegated colors in these threads. I've just started using them in my quilting and want to experiment more.

I've tried Aurifil's lighest weight thread, and I really want to try their heavier weight threads now. I also have some other materials that I can use in the bobbin, and so I am eager to test out the reverse method of quilting (thin on the top, the thick one in the bobbin; quilt loaded upside down). That's my goals for this year.

I've long wanted to try Aurifil threads. I'm just working on an Amish style quilt using Cherrywood sueded hand-dyed cloth and think the Aurifil threads would work well for the quilting. Since the quilt is all solids, the quilting has to shine.

It's so nice to know that Aurifil is environmentally friendly. I LOVVVVEEEE this thread, when piecing it just melds right into my fabric. As for machine quilting I actually think it glows. Next I'm going to try handquilting with Aurifil.
Thank you and Aurifil for the giveaway.

Aurifil Giveaway

28
I hope everyone had happy, healthy holidays.

Let's start off the New Year in a fun way with a giveaway, sponsored by Aurifil threads!  Alex Veronelli, Product Manager for Aurifil, sent me an assortment of threads to giveaway, so I'll be giving away three bundles this time and another three next month.  Sound good?  (Incidentally, Alex just gave an interview about Aurifil threads over at Jolly Jabber - make sure to check it out.  Did you know that Aurifil threads are produced in an environmentally friendly way?)



To enter please leave comment on this post telling me about some quilty-related item that you are excited about creating this year or some product or new fabric line that you can't wait to use.  (Please become a follower if you aren't already.)  Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you should you win!

The deadline is this Friday, January 6th, at midnight.

Happy New Year with lots of sewing!
Amanda
