Aurfil’s June Designer of the Month and a give-away

Annie Smith
Annie Smith of Simple Arts is the Aurifil Designer of the Month for June. Annie loves sampler quilts; she says they are “the ultimate instructional quilt” because you learn a different construction technique with each block. She is a lover of appliqué, too. Her free project for this month is this beautiful circular appliqué:

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 a comment after this post telling me if you have tried Aurifil thread yet, or what you think about Annie’s project. I'll pull a name at random on Monday, July 4 at noon EST. The sampler pack includes great colors in different weights. We have a winner! Sallie from Texas won this month’s sampler pack.
