Run by industry darling, Pat Sloan, the Aurifil Designer of the Month Program has been a mainstay of the Auribuzz blog since 2011. It all began with Pat’s offer to design a Mystery Block of the Month for Aurifil’s customers in 2010. It was such a success that Pat suggested we continue the block of the month model with the selection of 12 designers per year, introduced via a ‘Designer of the Month’ interview along with one unique quilt block. Every year since then, Pat has assembled a new team of top-notch Designers, featuring one per month throughout the year.
Posts generally share an interview, some fabulous images of projects made, studio spaces and more, and a FREE block + a chance to win Aurifil thread. At the end of every year, Pat offers a suggested quilt setting. It is a great way to get to know new designers, to try new techniques, to share in a quilt along experience, and to do some collaborative quilting!
Blocks are posted on Auribuzz on the 15th of every month. Patterns are all available here on our website via our FREE PATTERNS page.
