2014 Aurifil Quilt Completed - January ALYoF goal


The 12 blocks of the 2014 Aurifil Designer of the Month are now assembled to a quilt together with 8 grey blocks, some of these with a little winter design. It is quilted with wavy lines using the walking foot; a lot less time consuming than my Modern Maple.

My January goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is thereby accomplished with this quilt.



I did the photo shoot on a little playground close to my home. A clear winter day helps showing off the blocks of the 12 different designers. I used the same block setting as I did for my 2013 Aurifil quilt. This year I didn't have a clear color scheme, though: this is a scrappy quilt; I just grabbed the fabrics I felt was right each month when the design was published.


The quilt measures 51" x 65" before wash; a good sized quilt for a teenager. The quilt will be donated to the children's ward at my local hospital next month. This completes my 8th charity quilt for the hospital. I hope the quilt will bring good comfort to a child/teenager that needs it.



This is also my first finish in the 2015 Finish-Along for the first quarter of the year.

  1. Dette var en skikkelig artig måte å sy sammen blokkene på. Det ble et flott teppe. Jeg droppet ut etter fire blokker ifjor, men har enda lle blokkene fra året før liggende i en bunke. Kanskje på tide å sy dem sammen?

  7. So unique and wonderful. Can you please tell me what threads and weight you.used on top and bottom. My weakest skill in quilting is choosing threads for top and bobbin. Plus nrefle sizes. So I ask questions of those who make quilts I admire.
