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!

You can find out more about Susan here: 

Pat Sloan interviewed Susan on her online radio show March 15; you can download it and listen to on your computer here.
Remember, if you make the project, load a photo to the Aurifil Flickr group. That puts you in the running to win an Aurifil thread prize. One winner is selected each month. 

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!
