I am SO LUCKY. Not only do I get to be an Aurifil Designer this year but I get to be Miss January. This me with Pat Sloan at Market last fall... I’ve been dying to share this since October.
You can read all about the Designer Block of the Month here:
Be sure to join the FLCKR group for a chance to win some really great prizes!
This year all the blocks will be pieced which will be a nice addition to all the appliqué going on around here. Perfect for 2013 because my block of the month, Jingle, is a appliqué/ piecing combo.
We are all going to be using Pat Bravo’s Rock and Romance collection from Art Gallery fabrics. I got to meet Pat at Market too. Here she is in her super cute booth showing off her fabric line.
This year’s theme is Rock and Roll and we had to think of a favorite song to inspire our blocks. Mine was Jumping Jack Flash, but it really could have been anything by the Stones...they have always been my favorite...even though I am a mild mannered middle aged lady. It must be because I grew up in California during the 60’s.
I put together this little instruction set that you can download here:
Also, I have something special to give away! Can you guess?
Yup...THREAD! Just leave a comment telling me what YOUR favorite Rock n' Roll song is and I will pick a lucky winner sometime next week.
Now for another Rolling Stones song to get us all started:
