Aurifil Designer of the Month

I am thrilled to be one of the Aurifil 2015 Designers.

Here is a photo of most of us at Quilt Market, with our fearless leader Pat Sloan. Holy cow, do I feel lucky to be part of this talendted group!



Each month Aurifil Thread  has assigned one of us to design a block and project. My month is August, but I will be sharing each designer's post so you can see what's coming out of our sewing rooms.  You may want to do what Pat Sloan is doing and make each month's block out of one of your favorite fabric collections.  And if you are looking for a new favorite collection, I invite you to see my collections--Color Love, Mill Works, El Camino Real, and Pointe Pleasant-- on the Marcus Fabrics website. Look for my newest collection, INTRIGUE, coming soon.  

Gundrun Erla is Aurifil's January designer. Enjoy learning about her--I sure did!

Make your own version of the project and post it on the Aurifil Flickr Page and be eligible to win a great prize of some Aurifil Thread!   I am thinking this might look great with the colors reversed – what do you think?

Here are the other great designers who will be featured:
