I would love to make a quilted duffle bag! That fabric with that thread…YUM!!!

Ali said…
I would make a picnic quilt, I don’t have anything to lunch on in the grass!


  1. Oh I would think I had died and gone to sewing heaven. I would make some pillows for my new sewing room so fast your head would spin!!

  2. I have NO idea what I would make but I'm quite sure it would be something 'purty' could it NOT be with that beautiful fabric?!! LOL I LOVE aurifil so when it includes aurifil, it's ALL good!! Thanks!

  3. So far I used Botanics fabrics separately, but if I win matching thread, I would love to make a quilt and finally try free motion quilting.

  4. I'm gonna be honest here… No way that stack and that thread are getting used up together and right away… Both will need some time to be enjoyed in their present form. Then I'd spread them throughout projects from garments for me to baby quilts, and everything in between, wherever there special-ness could best be appreciated!

  5. This collection is very nice; good colors and patterns easy on the eye, but with a mod look. My daughter just moved into her new house, I think I'd make a wall quilt for her, she'd love the hip look.

    Thanks for the chance.

  6. I would make Denise Schmidt's Point Me quilt pattern in a generous twin, and then quilt with the aurifil thread–I think these colors would look amazing running across a Kona Snow background!!

  7. I'm starting on the Great Granny Sew Along, and the Aurifil threads would be oh sew nice to go "along" with it!

  8. Thank you for such a great giveaway! Aurifil is my favorite thread, I would make a bed size quilt using Botanics! 🙂

  9. I love Aurifil thread! I would sew a quilt from the book and maybe use a lot of white so the thread in the machine quilting will show up.

  10. Oh my gosh! Are those not the most lovely fabrics?!! And I love that there are wide backing prints as well. 🙂
    Aurifil threads are great. I'm about to start quilting my latest with a lovely shade of grey.
    What would I make? Oh my! I might just sit and stare at them for a while and let them inspire me!

  11. Could see myself making a summer quilt, and a tablerunner to match. Love the thread colors too-Aurifil is the best! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  12. These colors are just delicious! I would make a quilt for the futon in my expanded sewing room! Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Oh I don't know! This is a fabulous giveaway! I'm thinking a quilt with lots of lovely fmq on it–gotta show off those threads too, right?! Or maybe a whole cloth quilt with just the threads!

  14. If I were the lucky winner I'd make a quilt for me. Every quilt I've ever made, I've given away. I'd love a tradinational quilt made with a modern flair. It would be great to try Aurifil thread. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  15. Wow… that's easy. I would make lots and lots of bags, pouches, and totes. I love, love, love both the Aurifil thread and the Botanics fabrics!

  16. After looking closely at the Fabric – I think I would make the 'Button Pattern' from 'Cluck,cluck Sew' I recently bought. It has just the right mix of print and solid Fabric for this Pattern and matching thread…..well, sewing room – here I come!!

  17. Love Aurifil thread and would love to make a churn dash quilt with Botanics. I have seen a pattern with various size churn dashes. This combination would be perfect.

  20. Such great textures in this fabric line! I'm sure I would use it in the next great sew along! These threads are awesome too… many colours that I haven't seen before!

  21. The whole botanics line is so lovely and these threads are no exception! I think what wouldn't I want to make might be more the question, the fabrics lend themselves so nicely to quilts but also bags and garments.

  22. Love Aurifil and Botanics….I would make a modern appliqué quilt to show off fabric and thread. Pinehavencreations at

  23. I love the look and feel of this line!! I would use it to make something for my brother. It's just manly enough without being too far out of my comfort zone. Thanks for the chance!!

  29. not sure what I would use this fine gift for – I like to have the fabrics in hand and ponder about its use. I am sure that bags and blankets would be in their future though.

  30. I would make a quilt with large blocks, to show off the fabulous designs on the fabric. (One of my favorite fabric collections, by the way! And thread to match? That's over the top!)

  31. I love the crossweave print in the line and already used it as background. And the collection is also a great stash builder. I love Autrifil thread it's so wonderful and I think with the colors you could create some great quilt patterns (if only my FMQ skills were this good;-)

  32. I love the colors in this box of Aurifil thread. I could see a summer quilt made with these colors and Botanics just might be a good fabric choice. Thanks for the chance to win.

  33. I have been watching Aurfil videos and dreaming of beautiful thread. I have 10 finished quilt tops to quilt. This giveaway would be the perfect kick start for me. Also, I have 4 new quilt tops that are almost finished. Do you see a pattern here!

  34. Hmmm. The disco quilt is really nice. I have lots of patterns that will work quite nicely with
    Botanics. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  156. Oh, my! I'd probably just look at the pretty fabrics and thread for a while, just to enjoy them. Then I might try thread painting, since I've been wanting to try it out!

  157. These fabrics would make a fun summer quilt for my friend's 50th birthday. I already love aurifil but do not have these gorgeous bold colors. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  161. I would love to have these threads in my stash as I sort of collect threads weather or not I can use them. They are all such pretty colors

  162. All I can say is WoW!! I am starting on some placemats or halloween and Christmas, I am applicating on them. This would be wonderful to have to use on them. These are gifts for my childrem and g-children What a wonderful giveaway.

  163. I have been "collecting" bits and pieces of ribbons, yarns and beads for an art quilt and these color tones are the very same shades for the quilt. These threads would be used in background and foreground and to highlight the flowers.

  164. I have never work with this thread, so I would have a good time trying it out! I totally see using on handbags, modern quilts.

  165. I would make a baby quilt for my new great nephew. These colors are just the ones to stimulate thinking in a young child.

  166. I would make a quilt that would involve applique to show off the threads and also a bag and zipper pouch. 🙂 Thank you!

  169. The colors in this Botanics fabric and thread collection are rich yet subtle. Although they would be perfect for almost any room in my home, I would make my daughter a quilt for the apartment she is moving into on May 1st. It is her first apartment and she would LOVE coordinating her room decor around this collection. Thank you for the opportunity to win this beautiful gift.

  170. The Botanics fabric line is wonderful! I would be in 7th Heaven to have a big stack of Botanics fabric and matching Aurifil threads!!! I think I would make a modern Spring quilt and possibly a new table runner as well.

  171. I'm addicted to her Botanics textured fabrics and have used them in four quilts. I'd like to start a granny square quilt with this collection.

  172. I love colour, and I NEED colour, as it is not nearly green enough for me yet! I love Aurifil and with the Botanics, I would make a snazzy colourful bag to take with me to the Farmers' Market, where I was this morning!

  173. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway! I can see in my minds eye a fabulous quilt made of blocks of simple, leafless trees. It's going to be my next project.

  174. The Botanical colors are absolutely luscious–both fabric and thread. I can see a big quilt in those colors on my bed. what a way to celebrate Spring and Summer in all their glory.

  175. This thread would be perfect for my first time scrappy quilt!! I wouldn't have to worry about matching anything. Just start sewing and sewing and sewing with all the beautiful colors and end up with my first time ever MASTERPIECE!!!! Oh this would make a wonderful win!! Thank you Aurifil for this amazing giveaway.

  176. I think I would like to try the thread in an applique project. I like to do machine applique. I have never used Aurifil thread!
