Aurifil’s August Designer of the Month, and a give-away

Jinny Beyer is Aurifil’s Designer of the Month for August. Jinny designs fabric – including the many fabulous border designs she uses in her quilt patterns – and she does everything (piecing and quilting) by hand.

On the Aurifil blog, you can read Pat Sloan’s interview with Jinny, and download this beautiful free project — a placemat she designed using her border prints:

Remember, if you make any project from the design team, load a photo to our Aurifil Flickr group. This puts you in the running to win an Aurifil thread prize!

FabricAndFlowers from Houston, Texas is this month’s winner! 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 why you started quilting, I'll pull a name at random on Saturday, Sept. 3 at noon EST. The sampler pack includes great colors in different weights.
