A free project from Aurifil’s Designer of the Month, Susan Guzman

Susan Guzman’s “Favorite Things” pillow
The Aurifil Designer of the Month for April is Susan Guzman. On the Aurifil blog you can read an interview with her, and download the free project (above) that she designed to show off vintage fabrics. Susan’s style is ecclectic; she designs quilt patterns that are contemporary, traditional, scrappy, applique, and folk art styles!

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 Susan's project. I'll pull a name at random on Sunday, May 1 at noon. The sampler pack includes great colors in different weights. WE HAVE A WINNER: Congratulations to Marcia W. from Florida!

  8. What a beautiful pillow. This brings back memories of my grandmothers home. The softness of the colors, the beautiful design. I think I'll have a cup of tea along with a cookie in her memory as that is what we always had at her house.

    Thanks for posting this pillow.

  15. Susan's design is cute and adorable. Small enough to be sooo do-able... not another UFO.

  16. That is a very feminine, delicate project.
    If Susan does a project management plan for each project, she's WAY more organized than I will ever be!!
    thanks!
