Each month this year, I’m going to be giving away a pack of Aurifil minispools (like the one shown above) when the new project is announced. Just leave me a comment here to tell me what you think of Linda’s projects. I'll pull a name at random next Friday, Feb. 11 at noon. The sampler pack includes great colors in different weights. Congratulations to Kathleen in Montana; she won this giveaway.

  1. I think her Letter holder is sweet! I was thinking it would be nice to keep in hanging around for note pad and pen and my grocery list even after Valentines day is over with. It is just sweet!

  3. I think both projects are fast and fun! I really like the font on the letter holder. I agree, you could keep it busy all year round with projects and notes from your kids. Thanks for the chance at some yummy thread.

  7. The wonky heart pillow is so cheerful. The letter holder would be great for kids to use for their valentines for school. Would enjoy the thread for sure.

  10. I think the letter holder would be nice on every one's chair around the table. We could all put home made cards in each other's holders! In fact, I think that's what I'll do this year. Great idea, Linda!

  17. I love the Love letter holder. It would be great to store children's art, Christmas cards, notes or reminders or small gifts for someone to find when they get home, small hand work projects ready to go.... The idea would work for so many things!

  19. Linda is a wonderfully inspirational quilter with adorable children. I am so pleased that she is the Aurifil's Designer of the Month for February. I haven't ever tried their thread and would love to. To win a pack of minispools would be fantastic! ~Kathleen

  21. I had fun doing your project,the leaf quilt. My quilt leaves came out wonky. But I will be making more

  22. The pocket for cards on the back of a chair is such a good idea, Susan! I can always use more thread. Thanks for counting me in.

  23. I wish I had time to do your leaf quilt! It looks like so much fun! The letter holder is sweet too, if we only did not have roundbacked chairs, lol!

  24. The first thing that came to my mind was that the letter holder would be great for a teacher to have! I imagined all the little kids, putting their Valentine cards in it.

    The pattern would also be great to make for a December project. I would fill it with holiday cards too! :)

    Wonderful give-a-way! I only recently discovered Aurifil threads. So far, I like them a LOT!

  25. The letter holder has infinite possibilities. I thought the pillow was just a cute little doodad until further "clicking" brought up a photo of someone holding it --and it's not tiny.

  26. The heart pillow is just perfect for this season.
