    1. Love the color. I made a yo yo lap quilt with turquoise.
      Is there a chart to make a larger blocking for the June quilt?

    2. Am soooo looking forward to my August surprise. The colour is fantastic and I reckon the rest of the surprises will be just as good. Always worth waiting for.

  1. if the picture of the thread is any indication of the color for the fabric then YAY! Love the colors together – i have yet to receive a sew sampler that I didn’t like … now I just need to use all the beautiful fabrics and patters.

  2. My guess is Aurifil variegated thread, possibly sea foam green. Or maybe a brand new color! Looking forward to seeing what other goodies go into the box.

  3. Definitely variegated thread–not doubt Aurifil–possibly FQS exclusive or Lori Holt exclusive. I hope there’s matching fabric! Could be for blanket stitching an applique project?

  4. Thread for sure. Floss or for machine. I really like the color. Actually green is my favorite color. The mystery adds to the fun.

  5. This is my first Sew Sampler and I could not be more thrilled! This is MY color. I bought a car mostly because it was this color. I am so excited!

  6. Maybe this beautiful sample is embroidery thread. Any thread in this color would be welcome in my sewing room.

  7. you’re not trying very hard to hide the Aurifil variegated thread, but it does get us all more excited about receiving the box. I love getting them each month. I don’t always love everything at first, but it’s so fun to try out new notions or a pack of pretty new fabric outside my usual color choice. keep these wonderful boxes coming!

  8. Aurifil variegated thread … maybe fabrics to match!? It’s going to be a wonderful box, as always ….

  9. Love the color, I am thinking Aurifil thread, hoping the fabric is in that color line also. Beautiful thread.

  10. Love the the thread color I am so excited I can’t wait till I get the box in the mail. If there is any fabric that goes along with it love it love it love ! Absolutely wonderful I just wrote a comment that I would love to see more thread in the sew sampler box and you just put a picture of a thread how amazing

  11. I think it’s thread to coordinate with the Hello Jane line from Cluck Cluck Sew from Allison Harris since you said HELLO August! Oh I hope it is- that’s a beautiful line!!!

    1. I just did a search for the fabric on the Fat Quarter Website and the fabrics did not have those colors included so we’ll see.

    2. I think (and really, really hope) that Hello Jane is correct. There are a few fabrics in that line that this thread will go with.

  12. Love the color of that thread! aurifil I can hope or gutermann? Either way it’s pretty and I can only hope something equally pretty to go along with it! Please take my suggestion about none of thee above as a which is the one you don’t like in your box for the month!!!

  13. Aurifil Teal Spotted Variegated So pretty, hope there’s something to go with that thread. Never enough fabric. Just not enough time to sew it all!

  14. I think it’s the new steel thread. Looking for something neat to make using this thread and some Fabric! I have my fingers crossed. Surprise me with something wonderful!

  15. This is my very first box and I subscribed even though it’s not in my budget. I need some ” ME ” time and right now there’s anything but that, in caring for a 6 year old severely disabled grandson. I’m just discouraged and hope this box ( and really hope there’s some pretty fabric )puts a smile in my discouragement. Ps.Sorry for this downer of a post as it’s been a ROUGH day.

    1. Hi Karen,
      I hope you have a better day tomorrow. You are a wonderful grandmother for giving your grandson the care he needs. Be sure to give yourself a pat on the back for all you do! Take time to enjoy the small blessings of each day.

      1. He is our blessing Judy..he teaches everyone about unconditional love as he roams around our hearts. Some days are much easier than today. When I have fabric/ scraps and can sew even for a minute, that makes my day brighter in caregiving , ya know?

      2. Hello Karen,
        No worries, you are not a downer, YOU are an awesome loving Gram for taking time and care of your Grandson. These boxes will surely give you the “ME” time you are looking for even if you don’t do anything with all of the items, you will have fun just looking thru them until you have your project sorted out. I hope you enjoy them for many, many months to come, and I hope the thrill of getting the box each month never wears off for you!

  16. Aurifil in all of its jeweled Aqua glory, LOVE the color & can’t wait to see what it’s partners are it this next box!

  17. As most everyone has guessed there has to be variegated thread in the lovely color shown inside the next box. I can hardly wait for it to arrive and to see what other goodies will be included.

  18. It appears to be a variegated thread, possibly the Teal Aurifil? Either way…it’s beautiful and I love to use them!!!! I can’t wait, since each box has been NO disappointment to me! This will be like my Birthday Box almost when it arrives!!!! I can’t wait to see it!!!! 🙂

  19. Thread is my guess.was hoping that it would be something for fall.not feeling this color at all and i did look at the fabric that someone said about & I’m not loving this box so far.but maybe the other stuff in box will make up for it

  20. Lovely colors. Who can resist a variegated thread!”Get your spyglass out’ makes me wonder if the theme has something to do with the sea. Looking forward to my next cheery surprise.

  21. Ya’ll are very sneaky about your sneak peeks. Have never gotten it right yet. Thinking making something variegated,lol

  22. Variegated Aurifil thread. I wonder what else is in the box. Must be an aqua, turquoise, teal theme. Squealing in delightful anticipation.

  23. So excited every month for my box to arrive. This is my favorite color way and I can’t wait to see what else is included. The tease is fun! Thank you!

  24. This will be my first box and I’m so excited!! Whatever it is, I love the colors in this sneak peak and I can hardly wait.

  25. Looks too aqua to be Aurifil Storms at Sea, but love the color. Definitely some thread or floss. to go with a great pattern, I’m sure! Love it!

  26. ohhhh .. I’m just finishing up and blue and green sailboat quilt. Maybe I can use this thread for some of the quilting! Yay.

  27. Iam sorry I wanted to also say to Karen who is caring for her grandson, it may be hard now but someday you will be rewarded. I went through the same thing with my own son. He is now 38 years old and doing pretty well in his own way. I look back and I thank god every day that I didn’t give up on him! He really is the best thing that ever happened to our family. He has taught us to be humble,forgiving,respectful, thankful and so much more.

    1. Oh Rebecca what you said is so very true. 38 years old! That is wonderful to hear your Son is doing well. What a sweet post you made.

  28. A varigated green thread – how wonderful to use to quilt something like the little blocks made from the July charm pack.

  29. Maybe there is no fabric – only Aurifil Embroidery floss and perhaps something to embroider! That would be great.

    Also to Karen – I’m a Grandma too (5), and I understand how difficult it must be,
    Believe me, I would do the same if the need arose. Take one day at a time, and if you can find a tiny bit of sunshine every day, you’ll be fine. God Bless You for everything you do.

  30. I think its thread and a jolly bar to go with…I am so excited. I just joined and received my first box in July…I was so happy with everything…your boxes are great
