Aurifil 2015 Designer of the Month: Kimberly Jolly

Hi everyone! It's Kimberly here and March is one of my favorite months of the year (besides being my birthday month), since I happen to be this month's Aurifil Designer of the Month! I've made both of the mini quilts from January and February and cannot wait to show you my mini quilt for March!

After sewing my Snapshots quilt, I wanted to use my leftover Daysail scraps and came up with RipplesMy mini is made with simple half-square triangles and flying geese. Each ring gets to show off its own colors, and the slightly off-centeredness makes it feel fresh. 

The Ripples quilt pattern is available for you FREE over at the Aurifil blog along with a super fun interview by one of my favorite quilters, Pat Sloan. If you want to create my version of this mini quilt, we created quilt kits with a free Aurifil mini spool included so you can start sewing!

Just when you think we're done, Aurifil was kind enough to send us 200 Aurifil mini spools to giveaway! We're giving away 10 spools to 20 people! To enter our giveaway, head on over to the Aurifil blog (don't forget to leave some love there!) and answer our question below on our Rafflecopter. 

Thank you so much for joining us and I can't wait to see your mini creations! Please use #AurifilDesignerMysteryBOM2015 on instagram so I can check out your progress!

Everyone thinks "sweet tea" is the answer but if you have sweet tea then biscuits should also be on the list.

Kylie Carlson said...

Kimberly's favorite snack is sweet tea. Also I wanted to say I haven't been participating in the Snapshots BOM but this month's Kettle Block was too cute to pass up and is destined to be a mini quilt for my kitchen wall. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Britiney @ Consider the Lilies said...

Sweet tea! Although this Idaho girl doesn't think tea qualifies as a "snack" ;O)
