A wonderful Free Aurifil Block and all mine together from Pat Sloan's Blog

I love the Aurifil Designer of the month day. What I love is getting to know each designer. March is Sedef Imer who is from Down Grapevine Lane. Once you read her interview you'll know why she selected that as her business name! This is my 9th year hosting and I'm inspired each month. Let's get to it!

Each year I pick a theme and give the designer a set of color criteria for their challenge block. Then I interview the monthly designer at the Aurifil  blog.

And each month share your block at the Aurifil interview ...

Spring Fling quilt from Charm About You

spring fling quilt by Lucy Brennan | Charm About You

I'm so lucky that I get to have SO MUCH FUN creating designs with bright and beautiful fabric. For this quilt I picked out prints from Zuma by Tula Pink and a range of colours from Tula Pink solids.  A classic block in the centre and medallion style borders made with a mix of regular machine piecing and foundation paper piecing, make for a modern and dynamic quilt. My Spring Fling quilt pattern is in Issue 71 of Love Patchwork & Quilting - out now!

The detail in the prints is just amazing, there's so many that I thought were ...

I Am Enough Quilt Along Top Finish from A Ditchin' Time Quilts

Finally finished this quilt top!  I have loved making all the squares. I am using all my mom's old fabric from her stash that I inherited when she passed away.  Every time I look at this quilt it reminds me of her.  It reminds me of all the things she made of these fabrics.  It gives me such happiness to see this come together.  

Check out Havel's Sewing Blog for their wonderful sewing tools and batting! There you can find this pattern, designed by Melanie from Southern Charm Quilts. Just such fun! Details here!

Pineapple Crush Quilt ~ Aura Blog Party from Charm About You

pineapple quilt blocks made with Aura fabric

Mister Domestic invited me to his Aura Blog Party and I was like, "woaaaah.", and then saw the fabric and I was like, "woaaaah." and then it came to me that this would make the perfect pineapple quilt, "woaaahh..."

So this is my ode to Mr Crush Turtle, with turtles swimming through the denim water and geometric coral reef! A tropical blend of modern and traditional, this quilt is simultaneously structured and choatic. The clean lines of the pineapple blocks and the way I've placed the colours makes for a striking layout yet the prints themselves are scattered throughout ...
