Great new free project from Kaye England

Kaye’s free project for May
The Aurifil Designer of the Month for May is Kaye England. On the Aurifil blog you can read an interview with her, and download the beautiful free project (above) that she designed. I just love traditional quilts with black backgrounds; the bright colors just pop off that black! 

Kaye and a friend
Kaye grew up on a farm in Glasgow, Kentucky, and now lives in Indiana. She designs fabrics for Wilmington Prints, and heads her own publishing company. You can see all of Kaye’s patterns, books, DVDs and fabrics on her website.

Pat Sloan interviewed Kaye on her online radio show February 7; 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. 

Aurifil’s fan page on Facebook is:

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 Kaye's project. I'll pull a name at random on Wednesday, June 1 at noon EST. The sampler pack includes great colors in different weights. 

UPDATE: Tisme won the thread. Try to win again this month!
