In addition to the wide spectrum of wonderful colors to choose from and in different weights, the quality is second to none.
I have been using Aurifil thread exclusively for the last six months for all my machine sewing. Thread breaks are virtually non-existant and what has completely blown me away is the reduction of the lint build up under the stitch plate.
Allow me to digress before I get to the nitty gritty of this post.
Just recently I found out that my friend Lucie's son and his wife were expecting a baby. I thought I had three weeks to make a quilt for the new born but Clara decided to enter the world two weeks early. I dropped what I was doing and spent an afternoon and the next morning making this quilt for Clara.
I used 1930's reproduction fabrics from my stash and it was pieced using Aurifil Mako 50 wt #2021.
My friend Lisa quilted it on her new mid-arm using Aurifil Mako 50 wt # 2115.
Didn't she do an awesome job?
Clara says she loves it too!
If you've never had the good fortune to try Aurifil thread, here's your opportunity.
Aurifil has graciously donated this 10 color collection of 100% cotton 50 wt spools of thread from the Floral Gatherings collection for my giveaway to which I've added a charm pack from Floral Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda that coordinates with the thread.
