Jaybird Quilts has designed an awesome new block of the month quilt using the upcoming Tula Pink True Colors fabric collection!This quilt is a perfect project for any level: you'll get lots of practice cutting with rulers/templates and sewing accurate 1/4" seams. This pattern is easy and effortless thanks to Jaybird Quilts. There are no Y-seams in the quilt! This BOM runs for 10 months, from January to October 2021.The quilt is composed of 9 unique diamond blocks that make the center star. In months 1-9 you will make 2 of each of these diamonds and month 10 is the background.

Instructions are also included for making the quilt in a Throw size (will have background fabric left over) or King size ( will need to purchase additional background fabric for the king size).

Aurifil Color Builders Club (40 wt thread)
The 2021 Aurifil Color Builder Thread Club subscription is a fantastic way to add some brightness through the year and ensure you never run out of thread in the middle of a project. Each month is a mini-collection containing three large 1000m spools of 40wt cotton thread – a warm, a medium, and a dark. These large spools are the equivalent of nearly 7 small spools. Aurifil specializes in the production of 100% cotton threads, made in Milan from Egyption Mako cotton. This cotton is versatile, strong, and produces virtually no lint as you sew. The 40wt 2 ply cotton thread is wound on a bold green spool and is tremendous for sewing bags and garments, or when a more defined topstitching or quilting pattern is desired. 40wt is thread is the number one recommended weight for quilting and machine embroidery.
This year’s color inspiration comes from 12 magnificent Endangered Species in dire need of attention, advocacy, and compassion. Throughout 2021 Aurifil will work toward affecting positive change for these Endangered Species by partnering with Earth League International, an innovative non-profit organization that fights environmental and wildlife crime by merging the worlds of conservation, intelligence, analysis, whistleblowing, and media production. Aurifil has also partnered with The Plastic Bank to become plastic neutral and to create a positive impact on the environment while reducing global poverty.
Club Members will receive:
Three spools of 40 wt 1000m Aurifil cotton thread in beautiful color-coordinating hues, a warm, medium, and dark each month.
One exclusive foundation pieced pattern and one custom designed embroidery motif in honor of the featured Endangered Species per month. We will print the FPP pattern and send with your threads. The Embroidery file will be emailed to you.
Access to instructional videos for successful machine quilting with Aurifil 40wt

Aurifil Color Builders 2021 (50 wt thread)
It was so popular....we are repeating it..... Aurifil Color Builders from 2020, a capsule of twelve curated mini-collections inspired by (and named after) Italy's most vibrant and colorful destinations. Each collection contains three large spools of 50wt thread : a light, a medium, and a dark within the location's primary color palette.
From the lemon groves of Sicily to the pink sand beaches of Sardinia to the clear teal waters of Capri to the stark city grey of Milan; each collection is crafted to evoke images of our beloved Italian landscape. The colors were selected not only for their aesthetic appeal, but for their practicality in everyday use. Aurifil offers some of the highest quality quilting threads on the market today and they are keenly aware of the importance of color in this creative world of ours. Color can change the tone of an entire project. It can represent time, convey emotion, evoke a feeling. Color is powerful and exciting, and is at the center of everything that we do.
During this 12-month club, you will receive one collection each month containing three large spools of 50wt thread -- a light, a medium, and a dark. As an added bonus, you will also receive a designer created sampler block pattern, and an added pattern this year. We will print you copies of the patterns or email you the link to the patterns. With your FIRST box of thread in January you will receive 1 FREE Aurifil thread Case, a plastic case which will hold 12 large spools of Aurifil Thread. You may buy more thread cases in the future.
We have a PRIVATE Facebook Group for this Club.
Cost is $39.99 per month with $7.99 shipping. Starts in January 2021.
Limited spots available!
