Up Close and Personal, Preorders, and a Giveaway!

Today we’re giving you a closer look at our Aurifil SARIELLA thread collection and all the beautiful things you can do with it! You can also read more over on the Aurifil Auribuzz Blog here including a little interview with us 🙂

The SARIELLA set contains 11 large spools of 50 weight 100% cotton thread in ten luscious colors plus white, and one large spool of clear monofilament, all in a handy (and pretty!) storage case.

Our SARIELLA collection is now available from retailers and we are also doing a discounted preorder for those who would like to order directly from us. Preorders will be open here through August 28 and boxes will ship out a few weeks after.

If you’ve never used Aurifil thread, you don’t know what you’re missing. Just a few of the major highlights are that it is made from high quality Egyptian cotton so it’s smooth and seamless, it’s completely lint free (they literally singe all the lint off!), it does not contain any toxic chemicals (perfect for baby quilts and those thread lickers, like me!), it comes in a wide variety of thread weights and 270 consistent colors.

We’re going to show you all the colors in the set and then share some projects and a super awesome giveaway! Aurifil colors have an assigned color number, but we also gave them our own fun names 🙂

SAKI2

The colors in our collection were inspired from our logo and matching Saki Butterfly quilt. We taught a Saki workshop in New Mexico last weekend and it was so fun to see everyone using the thread sets on their quilts!

There are so many things to love about this collection, but at the top for us is versatility. The 50 wt threads and monofilament can be used for piecing, top stitching, quilting, binding, hand sewing, and appliqué. The colors blend with an endless number of modern fabric collections, while the white and monofilament spools cover all your basic needs.

We still have so many fun projects in the works that really show off the beauty and versatility of this collection, but here are a few we’ve been working on…

NeotericPatternFull1

This is a rainbowlicious version of our Neotric quilt made with gorgeous Me + You Fabrics Indah Batiks. It was pieced and quilted by Sari using all the colors in our collection. See how beautifully they work together? We sure do love us some Indah Batiks!

Another fun project we’ve been working on is a set of appliqué Butterfly Charm Blocks to coordinate with Nikki’s original paper pieced versions.

CharmBlock3

We used the white thread to pieces the bodies and all the colors for the appliqué satin stitching. The fabrics used here are Tula Pink True Colors, another gorgeous pairing!

These patterns will be available as a free download at the end of the month, so stay tuned!

CharmBlocks4v2

Nikki will be using these blocks as a pocket on a Sewing Date Traveler she is working on. The body will be the adorable snails shown below from Tula Pink’s Slow & Steady line and she’s using the variegated spool from our collection for the quilting. The colors are just perfect!

A couple more amazing quilting projects that Sari recently completed include the quilt shown above for Rebecca Bryan quilted with clear monofilament and the quilt below for a personal friend quilted using all ten colors in ourcollection plus clear monofilament in the background. Both quilts were pieced with Kona solids.

CuratedBundle2

While at our Saki Workshop at Hipstitch last weekend, they asked us to curate a bundle of Art Gallery Fabrics Oval Elements, so we decided to match our thread collection because… well… so pretty! Right?!

    Delicious collection! I’m such a sucker for lime-y colors, so MOJITO got my vote. Since it’s a popular color in my ufo’s – this entire collection would finish many of them.
