Aurifil Blog Hop

Aurifil Blog Hop and The letter T

 


Hello Aurifil Blog Hoppers and welcome to the IHAN (I Have A Notion) blog.  Have you had fun this past week?  I know I have enjoyed visiting all of the blogs and collecting some great block patterns.

I was given the letter T for this blog hop.....an easy letter when speaking about Thread...don't you think?  Other T words that come to mind immediately:

Thread Tension
Tips, Terms and Techniques
Tools

Truthfully the reason I think I got the letter T is because I'm a Thief.  It's True and I have photos to prove it.

 Taking The Thread.....can you blame me? 
I only wish I had worn pants with an elastic waist.  I could have gotten that entire container in my waistline and covered it with my shirt. 
Instead, I had to go for the smaller box....shoved it down the back side...better know as the Tush.
I could not stop at a few spools....I Took the fork lift and Trotted off with the entire crate.  You know what?  I have no shame and no regrets.

Are you wondering what could possible cause an otherwise honest woman to become a Thief?  Try Aurifil for yourself and then tell me you don't want it ALL....yes a spool or several in every color and weight.  Just try to tell me if given access you would not attempt the same heist?   No lint, no breakage, beautiful colors, 12 wt, 28 wt, 40 wt, and 50 wt Thread.   Yep, I'm Thinking you would be Tempted to be a Thief Too!  By now you have read all the other Testimonials from the other Blogs in this Hop so you know of what I speak. 

The quilt blocks the other Bloggers designed are wonderful.  I'm a notions girl so designing blocks is not my Temptation.....instead I made this Joseph's Coat block pattern.  Tickled that I made the block Then I was Tormented when I realized I had been calling it "Jacob's Coat."  


Click here to download the pattern :)

I invite / Tempt you to Try The Thread That Tempts The Thief To Take it, AURIFIL.

Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win an Aurifil Thread Sampler. There will be Two winners selected from this post AND.....

Triumliterarum Smiles,
Kelly

Footnote: I didn't really Take The Thread That Tempted me....I just Tricked The Troupe To Think That I did :)

I sew see how you were tempted, I too would have given that a go. Just can't help myself with pretties, especially when they are good too. Hope I'm the lucky winner of a sample.

Cindee ;) said...

Awesome block...very unique...guess I better get to work to get this quilt going...thanks!!

bruinbr said...

hahaahhh! Your post is awesome! I love the picture of you on the forklift! Great way to wrap up the blog hop! I can't wait to try some Aurifil thread after this hop!

Claudia said...

Thanks for the great block and giveaway.

Ned's Place said...

I love love love Aurifil Thread it's great for machine and hand-piecing also for hand quilting, no lint or twists while using.Have only used the 50wt so far would love to try some of 12,28,40wts,I'm slowly replacing my old gutterman with Aurifil.

quilary said...

Terrific block pattern. Thanks for the chance to win some lovely threads!

Sam said...

Thanks for making this possible Kelly and Aurifil. I have not seen this thread in Australia; but I am trying to be good and use up my stash :) I would really like to try it. All the best, Sam. sdownes@oceanbroadband.net

Signe said...

Thank you for the beautifull pattern and showing how to sew it.
After this even beginners will dare to try making the block.
Signe Tronborg

Signe said...

Thank you for the beautifull block - and the showing of how to do it.
Even as newbeginner i dare to try making it.

Penny said...

LOL! You're hilarious Kelly!! You should have worn a maternity dress :)
Gorgeous thread.. I would be tempted too :)

Fiesta said...

Kelly thank you for the chance to win this fabulous thread.

jill warren said...

thanks for an entertaining start to the morning. It is a very pretty block and I am sure Aurifil thread would improve my qpplique technique. I need to win - almost as much as I need a cup of coffee.

Sunnybec said...

I love Aurifil, have only just started using it and its fabulous. Thank you for the pattern and for the chance to win. Linda

teresa said...

Kelly ~ What a fun post! I <3 Aurifil and hope I win!

Colleen said...

LOL! Great post!

deborah said...

I would have tried to make off with the thread, too:) Enjoying this blog hop!

Hannah said...

I, too, would have been truly tempted! That's the thing about such a stellar product - you can't get enough! Thanks so much!

Anonymous said...

Aurifil thread WOULD be tempting...so pretty, and it's the only thread my Pfaff doesn't choke on!

Shirley said...

The colours are like jewels, and they quilt like a dream, so yeah, I can see it's very tempting. I usualy purchase two of the same coulour, always afraid one won't be enough for my quilt. 500 yards is - most of the time- just enough. Bye from the Netherlands.

Lisa Marie said...

It seems that lots of people are crazy over this thread. Guess I better get some to see what I've been missing!

Carla said...

This blog hop has been so much fun! I love your block and Aurafil thread. Lucky for me, we have one quilt shop in the area that sells it.

gmp said...

I was hysterical reading your post and looking at the pictures (especially the one with the forklift!). None of the quilt shops locally carry Aurifil (whats up with that?), but I got my hands on two spools of 50 wt. at a quilt show last year, and I absolutely love it. Words cannot describe it. You must try it, because seeing is believe. Once you sew with Aurifil, you will never want to sew with any other thread again.
Thanks for sharing your pattern. I saw Pat's layout this morning, and I can't wait to see the reveal.

Gene Black said...

Totally Tempted to Take the Thread. Too Tantalizing to Try the Thread!
T-pick T-me! Tee-hee

Joanne Lendaro said...

What a fun post!! Loved seeing the pics again of you and the thread!!

Anonymous said...

Thank you for your part of a great week of blocks using my favorite thread: Aurifil!

Marj said...

Your story about Thread was entertaining. I love Aurifil thread already! It would be great to win some.

Anonymous said...

I LOVE Aurifil, too! I'd be tempted, too with all of that around me! Especially that GIANT cone -- wouldn't that be fun to have! julie stchsluv@aol.com

Becky said...

oh yeah, I love aurifil and would have been right beside you stealing that thread! ;) Thanks for the Jacob's I mean Josephs coat pattern! I love these blocks and have wanted to make one for a long time.

Anonymous said...

Kelly, I just love those photos and your sense of humor.

This tempts me to Thieve thread, too!

(notice the t's?)

Have a great weekend. stay safe...HUGS!

Quilter in the Gap said...

StuckinGeorgia said...

AAAAAAAAAA, that fork truck picture is hysterical! Thanks for the block pattern.

piece peace said...

Your post made me laugh. Thank you. This blog hop has made me anxious to try some Aurifil thread.

Sharon said...

Hi Kelly my name is Sharon and it is very nice to meet you! The block is wonderful and I think it will look awesome in the whole quilt, thank you. I must say that until a few weeks ago I never tried auriful and could not get it locally here in chattanooga. So a friend of mine gave me a spool of her white and I have to say that I really enjoyed using it. Youa re right it left little if none in lint and it is strong and very smooth to work with and my machine loved it too. Thank the Lord for the internet cause that is where I will have to get it unless I take a road trip once a month to somewhere here in TN. I would love to try other colors in it and I am sure like everyone else could really use to win one. Thanks for the opportunity and I really had allot of fun visiting all of you.

Barbara said...

LOve the photo of you acquiring the shipping container - my kind of woman ! YEA!

Thank you for the exquisite block - outside of my comfort zone so it is really going to be fun to try this

and another thank you for the chance to have this beautiful thread

Jodi said...

I am a fan of that style of block. Still need to get brave and try to make one. Thanks for the lovely competition.

bingo~bonnie said...

Kelly - I remember your blog post from the big show when you shared your behind the scenes mischief and this morning looking at your post with those photos again made me laugh out loud again! :) La,la,love your blog and seance of humor! You're a keeper! :)

Happy Weekend and thanks for the chance to win some AwEsOmE thread from what I've read.... I'd love to try it myself!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Julie B said...

Love your story! Thanks for participating. Please pick me for your give away so I don't have to become a thief too.

Linda said...

I would love to win this Aurifil thread. I LOVE it. It is thin, strong, and practically lint-free. Thanks so much for the chance!!

Mom2four said...

LOL Your block is great! I love working with Aurifil thread!

Julee said...

Thanks for taking part of this blog hop. Love the Aurifil Thread.

Linda said...

I've been using Aurifil thread, mostly 50-weight, since 1998 or so... back when it was less than $6 a spool! But it's worth its weight in gold for all things quilt-y. Thanks for the chance to win.

Tonya said...

I loved your 'T' post, it was definitely a humorous one! And who doesn't need a laugh?!?!? Thank you for the opportunity, I would love to win some to give it a try. Either way, I think I'm going to have to give Aurifil a try!

justducky65 said...

Your post had me laughing! Very creative. I take it you like the thread then? LOL

Love the block you've created. What a wonderful opportunity to try some of the Aurifil thread but on another applique block. This would be a great take-with-you project.

thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

bertiequilts said...

Now that big box just might be enough thread to last me for a little while... I sure would like to win a set of every color of this thread.

pinkquilter said...

Your so funny! I really enjoyed your blog!!! I too want to become a thief! I only have one spool of aurfil thread I need more! Thanks for the block!

Kay Conger said...

Kelly,

Thank you for taking the time to share a block and make the blog hop terrific. Joseph's aka Jacob's coat is truly tremendous.
Temptations abound, and Aurifil is calling me to touch and try the thread. Totally Terrific. Thanks againit has been fun

Cindy said...

This was a wonderful blog. Reading it was a great way to start the day! I love the Joseph's Coat block! Thanks!

Peaceful Piecer said...

thanks for a chance to win1

Yvonne said...

I love your block! And, I love Aurifil thread!

bluebonnet said...

This thread kit is *beautiful*....I'm just green with envy that you got to tour the Aurifil warehouse.

Jennifer O'Riordan said...

Your "thief" story and pictures are hilarious. What a great way to start the day! I can't blame you for wanting to take those gorgeous threads.

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

I am more THAN TEMPTED TO TRY THIS TERRIFIC THREAD on my TREADLE sewing machines. Yes, I have THREE TREADLES, so, I have a TERRIFIC need of THREAD for my TREADLES. Have I TRIED using THE letter T enough yet? (By THE way, Aurifil THREAD is great for machine applique, TOO!) TRY it. Check out some TERRIFIC quilters on my blog.

corinne said...

You know there are help groups for people, mostly women that have issues with thread and fabric. Love the story, you made me laugh as I sit on my couch blogging and watching the bizzard outside my window.Thanks for the giveaway.

Glory said...

Thank you for making your pattern easy to find and download. I know everyone wants us to look at their site and enjoy, however, I would also enjoy finding the download. Just saying... I would like to try Aurifil very much. This online "hop" is a very good idea.

Sally King

Diane H said...

Oh, just imagine all the lovely thread in that crate! Your blog is great - thanks for a chance and for participating.

Debbie Lou said...

I like your idea of stocking up on some supplies. Please share. Anyway, I would love to win some Aurifil thread. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm dying to. Thanks for sharing.

WoolenSails said...

You are so funny. I don't know if I have auifil thread, but need to try it. I use a different brand that i can get easily and on sale, but I do find it gets snagged in my machine sometimes.

Debbie

Syd said...

What a fun and cute way to present Aurifil thread. I've read all the blogs and since I finally have a free (if there's such a thing) morning I'm up early to go to town and hopefully find this thread. If not I'm sure I'll be back to purchase some. Thanks for such a fun block!

Amy said...

You are too too funny! Ya'll have definitely convinced me to try Aurifil! Thanks for the super cute block!!!

Tiffany said...

I'll Take some of that Tempting Thread to Try out Today!

Ann said...

Your block is wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway.

Darlene said...

Aurifil brings out the best in our work and the worst in our manners(love it so much we revert to "stealing" it). Hee hee! It is good stuff and you can never have too much of it. I haven't made a Jacobs' Coat, so this will be fun to try for the first time, along with trying Aurifil with needle-turn applique, which I have yet to do.

52knit4 said...

Maybe I need to "steal" some if it is that good.........sure hope I win a chance to try it.........love the block....I've been meaning to make a pillow out of a block like that for a while

Celeste said...

I downloaded Jacob's coat & hope to try it soon. I like the forklift picture!

Catherine said...

OMGosh...I am finally going to have to make an attempt at real hand-applique!!! lol I've always avoided it because the thread always showed and my stitches looked awful. I'm betting that with the Aurifil 50wt I won't have this problem, though, so thank you for the challenge. :-)

Marianne, aka Ranger Anna said...

Pick me! Pick me! My friends hear about how little thread I have and shake their heads and think to themselves, "...and she calls herself a quilter, little does she know...."

Anonymous said...

wow, I love your block (and the colors). And the colors of the Aurifill are delightful as well. Thanks for this give-away (and great to have found your blog!

sharon said...

Thank you for the Joseph's coat block, it's one of my favourites. And of course a extra big thanks at a chance to win the oh so wonderful thread.

Sally said...

I'm willing to be tempted by thread anytime, particularly Aurifil! There are worse things to be tortured by. I even searched out and bought the color card since reading about it on this Blog Hop. (I'm also now intrigued by that i-Top notion Kelly!) I LOVE the Joseph's Coat block! What a great choice.

JMNech said...

How cute! I agree as I would be totally tempted to steal the thread!!! I totally love Aurifil threads!!! I have been sewing with them for a few years and would love to win some more!

Love your temptations!

Liesbeth Wessels said...

True, I love the threads !!!
Thanks for the lovely pattern. greetings from liesbeth

free indeed said...

Poor you...there will be hosts of thieves coming at you now...you'll never know anything was missing from that crate will you? It wasn't me!!!
I'd like to try some and see if I get tempted too...esp the heavier weight stuff...I was quilting with the same thread I piece with...I'm anxious to see if my quilting looks improved with thicker thread...

Sherri said...

This has been so much fun Kelly! Thanks for participating in this contest! I hope I win...I guess I am in the majority of folks!

Truth is that I use Aurifil 50wt WHITE for bobbin. Poor little o' me has not one spool of Aurifil color. What a shame.

Here's my chance, so Thank you, Kelly.

Not being familiar with the word TRIUMLITERARUM, I googled it only to discover that "Homo trium literarum" is a synonym for THIEF!! And you, the Thread Thief, had the letter "T"! Could this be coincidence? ;-)

Thank you for participating the the Aurfil Hop (LOVE that Aurifil..) By the way, I like the block design you selected.

You are a kick in the pants! Thanks for such a fun blog...you rock! Colorful personage!

Sandi said...

Oh, this was so funny!! I would be a thief, too, except that I have been a volunteer at the local women's prison and I know I would not be able to take my Aurifil thread with me if I got caught with the forklift full of thread and had to go to jail. LOL! Seriously, this has been a fun blog hop, thanks to Pat Sloan, Aurifil and all of you that have shared your lovely blocks. And I love this one, especially since it is "Jacob's Coat" and that's the name of my only grandson! Thanks, Kelly for sharing!! Hoping I might win as I recently used Aurifil for the first time and loved it!! :-)

I understand the desire to abscond with the Aurifil - congrats on being strong! ;-)
