I’m excited to be participating in Aurifil’s Block-of-the-Month this year. This year’s theme was the rainbow and I was thrilled to get AQUA!!! Do you think I design enough prints with aqua? I’m not sure…
I love using feature prints in my work so I decided to make a block that would allow you to really make use of them! I called the block “Tightrope”, because it looked like all the elements were trapeze artists balancing on a rope!
Want to sew along? You can get the pattern delivered to your inbox by clicking here.
You can find the patterns for prior blocks by visiting Aurifil’s blog.
If you make this block, don’t forget to post to a photo here because they are giving away a large 12 spools thread collection of Pat Sloan’s to a lucky winner who has sewn the block!
I sewed along this year at a inconsistent pace. Some months I had no blocks, other months I had multiple blocks, but such is life… For my version of the quilt, I pulled from all of my collections this year to make the quilt: Folk Art Fantasy, Meadow Dance, and Winter Games. I chose the grey ring fabric from Winter Games for sashing and I just loved how it turned out.
Thanks to Aurifil for including me in their 2017 Block-of-the-Month! I really enjoyed it.
I hope that you enjoy the block pattern. I’ll be back with another special free pattern for my followers before the holidays – so be watching your email!
