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 :)

    Gorgeous thread.. I would be tempted too :)

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

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  20. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Totally Tempted to Take the Thread. Too Tantalizing to Try the Thread!

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

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  60. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  61. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  62. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  63. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  65. 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

    ReplyDelete
  70. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  75. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  76. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  80. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  81. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  83. 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. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. 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...."

    ReplyDelete
  85. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  86. LOL at your posting. Thank you for sharing your laughter, your pattern and the marvelous thread.

  164. Okay, I was fine until I saw the picture of you on the forklift and the 'crate' of Aurifil threads and then I lost it and laughed out loud. Thank you for the block and the opportunity to win one of the threads.

  165. 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.

  168. 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!! :-)
