2014 Aurifil Design Team in Houston

We had a chance for a group photo while in Houston!

A lot of fun messing around .. almost the entire group was there this time!

For 2014 we selected this group of fabric for the Design team challenge. The prints are all from “Wishes” by Sweetwater for Moda. Plus the Moda Bella Snow.

Each designer is going to create a 12″ finished block with a modern/clean feel using some of these fabrics and adding in ONE fabric from their stash. I love having that added spark that the designer uses to make the block perfect.

Many on the design team also design fabric, so you will see some of them making the blocks with their fabric lines, which is what I’m going to do!  I’ll be using my Grey with a bit of the Green and Orange from Bobbins’ and Bits.

And I love this line so much this pretty bundle is here to inspire me.. ((that’s my story.. you know the rest… wink!))

The first block is from Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic, which will set the tone for the entire year. I will be posting her interview and block the first week in January.

Be sure you are signed up for Aurifil’s newsletter at the top right of this block and mine on the right sidebar of my website!

  2. Stunning fabrics but Pat I won’t be able to use them unless you know of an aussie reseller that has your range. Otherwise I will hunt out some new fabrics in January with similar colouring. It looks amazing fun and now I am very excited, can’t wait.www.julie714@adam.com.au
    Ps loved the photo’s of you all. Looks like you all had a blast on the day. Can’t wait to for it all to start!

  3. Pat, I love your Bobbins & Bits: It’s on my Christmas list, and I saw the box arrive in the mail, so Yeah!! And this BOM looks so fun: I’m doing it this year: just have to order my Wishes fabric and I’m ready!!

    • Debby there is no supply list as each designer is making a mystery block and I have no idea which fabrics they will use.
