Friday's Feature

Today is Friday. My objective for this space is to share a new technique and a featured item each week with you. Modeled after a fun weekly event that I offered at my Quilt Shop for several years, Tuesday will be for Tuesday's Technique. Fridays will be for Friday's today I want to share one of my favorite products with you! When applicable, the item will be added to my shopping page for your convenience. Sign up for email updates (right) and you'll always be up-to-date!

Ah...Aurifil Threads! A favorite of quilters everywhere, this Italian thread is smooth as butter and always consistent. Although the company makes several different  weights and types of thread, my personal favorite is the 50wt cotton. This weight is marketed for both hand and machine work, and comes in a full spectrum of colors. It's wonderful for piecing, quilting, applique´, embroidery and more! Aurifil collaborates with fabric designers and quilters to create color collections. Pictured above is my daughter's collection, Sweet as Honey, which Aurifil released last year. My suggestion is that you consider picking a collection that appeals to you and you'll find yourself using every color in it! I've added a 4 spool collection of basic colors by Edyta Sitar to my shopping page.

Thanks for visiting today!
