Here we are again, Aurifil Thread time! Man how a month flies by! This month is all about the purples.
Pickup's are ready inside the door at the shop, in white bags this month. Shipments have already gone out today 10/15, so be on the lookout.
For October we have regal shades of purple for Amalfi, those gorgeous Aurifil shades of plum are perfect for fall sewing.
Our super talented designer this month is Sherry Shish of Powered by quilting who has a wonderful style and is so fun to follow! She encourages, teaches and sews right along with you. I love that she does streaming videos on Twitch so you can stitch along with her.
Tell us how you used the Amalfi Purples for your block.
When we were asked to select colors at the beginning of the year, I decided that I wanted to use purple. Purple was my grandma’s favorite color and she was the first person that I gifted a quilt to. She holds a special place in my heart and unfortunately passed away earlier this year.
When I was designing my block, I wanted to commemorate playing Mahjong with her which is played with 4 people around a table, similar to Gin Rummy but with tiles.
I went through several iterations of design for the block before landing on the final version. The grey is representative of the table we sat around and pinwheels represent the turns we took!
I also love secondary designs so this block repeated will give you really fun secondary pinwheels where the blocks meet.
This is a fun block!!
