Aurifil Thread Boxes: Giveaway Closed! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Aurifil Thread Boxes: Giveaway Closed!

Aurifil Thread Boxes are all the rage. Aurifil is well established as a favorite among quilters for their quality and durability. Quilters frequently use white, grey and black thread to piece their quilts. To spice up your thread options, Aurifil releases collections of thread to perfectly match certain popular fabric collections.   You can appliquΓ© with style and confidence, knowing that your thread will blend in flawlessly. Just grab a thread box that perfectly matches your fabric collection and get sewing!

We are featuring three new Aurifil thread collections that coordinate perfectly with three Moda collections. Combining Moda and Aurifil is a sure-fire way to produce a striking, colorful quilt! Today we are featuring (and giving away) Minick and Simpson’s Independence Trail, Vanessa Christenson’s Simply Color and Pat Sloan’s Eat Your Fruits and Veggies thread boxes to our Jolly Jabber readers!

Minick and Simpson’s Independence Trail Thread Box contains 10 spools of Aurifil cotton thread to coordinate perfectly with their Independence Trail collection. Fortunately for all of the Minick and Simpson fans, these spools go strikingly well with Indigo Crossing and well, most all of their collections! At least three to four spools in the box will work in all of their past collections.

V and Co’s Simply Color Large Thread Box contains 12 spools made to match her debut collection. Her thread is bright and vibrant but will blend in perfectly with the colors in Simply Color.

Pat Sloan’s Eat Your Fruits and Veggies Thread Box gets us in the mood for a healthy lunch. The 12 spools in her Large Aurifil Thread Box matches perfectly with her new collection Eat Your Fruits and Veggies, so stitch yourself up a tomato or an apple!

We are giving away one of each thread box featured to our lovely readers! Comment below letting us know what coming soon collection should have a coordinating thread box for a chance to win! A winner will be chosen at random on Monday (10/22/12). Good luck!


  1. I think Salt Water by Tula Pink would make a beautiful Thread Box – such a delicious range of colors! On the other hand, the Seven Wonders collection by Parson Gray would yield a box of colors that very few of us probably have in our stash. Both great choices πŸ™‚

  2. Really like Calliope by Riley Blake and think an Aurilfil collection would be wonderful to go with it!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I think Indigo Crossing. I know you said the M&S collection would work with it, but it is the fabric collection I am waiting to get my hands on.

  4. I am absolutely in love with Kate Spain's CUZCO. I would LOVE to see a collection to match this line.
    I want to win this prize!

  5. So many good choices! I'd vote for Amethyst, Calliope, or Eden's Dream! Or maybe some Mint Floressence, or Floressence…

  6. I think the Birds of Paradise Batiks by Hoffmann Fabrics would probably make an amazing colourful set as coordinated thread, but then I love the colours of those Batiks anyway πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. rainbow stonehenge would make a wonderful box of threads. Actually matching threads with any stonehenge product would be great, sometimes they are hard to match.

  8. from a marketing standpoint, I would say Kate Spain's two lines Cuzco and HOney are coordinating and people like her prints so that's probably a good idea. I'd prefer Kaffe's dots though!

  9. Thanks for the giveaway. A threadbox for honey, honey would be great!

  10. I think that Honey Honey by Kate Spain would be a good candidate for a thread kit. There are lots of colors in that collection and it would be great to be able to match them all! Thank you for the nice giveaway. πŸ™‚

  11. It's not on the page yet, but Salt Water from Tula Pink! I'm guessing that thread bundle would also coordinate nicely with her previous lines also πŸ˜‰

  12. I think La Belle Fleur should have its own collection, I think the colors would go well with the other French General lines. Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  13. I am torn between Field Notes and Hill Farm. if I can only go with one its Field Notes! Thanks for the incentive to going s rolling and shopping!

  14. I am looking forward to the reissue of Paris Flea Market. Those light pinks and greens need a thread box collection.

  15. Tula Pink's Saltwater, because I'm looking forward to it so much. And I know it's not in the Coming Soon list, but I'm planning on making her Spacedust quilt in the Birds and the Bees, so I'd like that one too.

  16. I think AMETHYST would be awesome…those purples and pinks with a touch of silver would be awesome!

    I have never used Aurifil thread so far, it isn't easily available in Germany. But I'm really curious to give it a try. The colours are fabulous!

  19. I'm so thrilled they have one for Simply Color! I've been holding my breath for that fabric since I first saw it! I can't think of any other line I want more. christina112358 at gmail dot com

  20. Oooh time for a change in colors.. Lets look at the Garden Grove collections. Everything from tans, to pinks to blues to greens.. Freesia Garden Grove Kim Diehl for Henry Glass and then there is Tiger Lily Garden Grove but they are all combined in the Garden Grove Yardage Kim Diehl for Henry Glass.. AWESOME!! A real change from what has already been done.

  21. WOW! Not an easy choice! Double Chocolate by 3 Sisters or Incense and Peppermint by Robyn Pandolph. Actually I LOVE Aurfil thread and will use any color! Thanks so much1

  22. I think the Apple Jack Cotton collection has a lot of fun colours, and matching thread would be awesome. Thanks for the giveaway

  23. I would love to see thread for the All Hands on Deck line, because they are just so freakin' cute! Am using my first spool of Aurifil for some English paper piecing. I love quilting and pick fabrics and products that make me happy. The thread and those darling fabrics would fit the bill!

  24. I think it would be interesting if every range came with, if not an actual box, but a list of the co-ordinationg thread numbers. It would certainly be helpful building a collection of threads.

  25. New Colonies by Nancy Gere. I LOVE aurifil thread. It is the only thread I will use. Using another thread is just not worth the headache.

  26. What don't I love? Now if I had to choose this very second… it would be either A Year To Crow About…. or Cuzco!! Thanks for the chance!

  27. Definitely need a collection of colours that match thje gorgeous "Rainbow Textured Basics" Patty Young for Michael Miller (for Applique)
    Great giveaway thankyou!

  28. I think Civil War Melodies would be a great choice for a thread box… there are so many lovely colors of repro civil war fabrics in it!

  29. Bear country school needs some matching threads. I love that it's mostly red, white, and blue also so it would match a lot of my other projects that are usually for military!

  30. Butterfly Bliss by Stella Jean for Wilmington Prints would be awesome with its own thread box. πŸ™‚ Thanks for a chance to win!

  31. I'd love a thread box for Bari J's Splendor. I'm drawn to Exuberance, but I think a combination of spools from the whole collection would be great!

  32. I am simply in love with Antoinette by Michele D'Amore for Benartex Fabrics and it took awhile to figure out what Aurifil Thread Box would do these fabrics justice and I've finally decided on Simply Color Large Aurifil Thread Box. Thank you for yet another great giveaway and good luck everyone!

  33. All Hands on Deck! Yardage/Jack and Lulu for Dear Stella Fabrics would be my choice. Love, love, love those nautical fabrics!`

  34. I can't resist Hearthside Seasons by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. Rich autumn colors make you think of the warmth and comfort of a fire and the upcoming holiday season. Carol G

  35. I think that Kaffe's Spot On should haev it's own thread box. It has so many wonderful bright colors that look hard to match.
    and I love the Simply Color Box. I would love to play with those.

  36. I would love thread to match Kate Spain's collection. I love the colors in her fabric lines. Thanks for a chance to win!

  37. Oh, my, how does one chose a single collection!

    Any of the batiks would be fun to see.



    Honey Honey

    and many more are deserving of their own collections of Aurofil threads!

  38. I couldn't choose just one as there are 2 lines I am crazy about first being Hearthside Seasons by Kim Diehl for Henry glass and the second would be Black White and Currant4 by Color Principle for Henry Glass. Aren't they both just beautiful? Of course they are! Thanks for a chance to win. I use Aurifil exclusively for all my sewing, quilting and stitching.

  39. Amethyst Yardage – Beautiful fabrics. This should have its own set of threads! Thanks for the chance to win these wonderful threads!

  40. Those thread collections look wonderful! I'd love to see one for Posy by Aneela Hoey. Thanks for the chance to win πŸ™‚

  41. Greetings from Northern Saskatchewan CANADA! I love the new Aurifil colors – especially the Independence Trail! I wish they would come out with it in Aurifil 12wt Lana Wool for applique though! Now they have the new wool in their line! We are addicted to wool applique up here!

  42. I could put at least a dozen different collections, but when I got to "Rebecca" from Windham Fabrics, I fell in love! That collection DEFINITELY needs a set of thread to go with it!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. Robyn Pandolph's Incense and Peppermints is my pick. I made my first quilt with her fabrics several years ago and she remains one of my favorite designers. I love the colors in this new 'coming soon' line.

  44. Well my favourite is the Blushing collection by Margot Languedoc for Henry Glass Fabrics, so a matching set of threads for that would be WONDERFUL!


  45. I pick two, Flutter Fat -The Quilted Fish and Rainbow Stonehenge – Linda Ludovico for Northcott Fabrics because I want them both. And think how pretty that thread will be!

  46. Baby Birds by Studio E is adorable, a set to work with this would be great. Thanks for the chance.

  47. For me it would be a toss up for the Pat Sloan's Eat Your Fruits and Veggies Thread Box or the
    V and Co's Simply Color Large Thread Box. Those are all great colors!

  48. I think that Flutter by the Quilted Fish should have it's own thread box. It has such pretty colors in the collection.

  49. Well let's see….Cuzco by Kate Spain, Fabulous Felines by Laurel Burch, Birds of Paradise Batiks, Coral Reef Batiks, just to name a few are more than worthy of having an Auriful collection!

  50. I think either the Lady Bug Garden or the A-B-Seas collection would be lovely with a co-ordinating thread collection.

  51. I would love to see an Aurifil thread collection for Paris Flea Market by 3 Sisters. Love those colors!

  52. I especially liked A Year To Crow About and Chinoise. These collections would have beautiful threads.

  53. I'm going to have to agree with a lot of other people and say Honey Honey would make a beautiful thread collections! I also really like In My Room.

  54. I love Aurifil thread especially for hand work. I would love to see a thread box that coordinates with the Amethyst Collection by Exclusively Quilters.

  55. Type Yardage by Julia Rothman! Include thread # 2324 which is my all time favorite!
    thanks for a chance to win.

  56. I think a collection of thread to compliment Kaffe Fassett's "Spot On" Fabric Collection would be fabulous. It would go with all of the other fabrics in the Kaffe Fasset Collective and would be really versatile that way! Thanks for the opportunity, just love Aurifil and your shop!

  57. I think Cuzco but would love to have any of the Thread Boxes as I'm sure that I would find something to go with them. Thanks for the opportunity to wind a box.

  58. I'd like to see some threads that coordinate with some of the Bali pops– I just bought three of the new ones and they are gorgeous.

  59. I love the gorgeous colors in the Birds of Paradise Batiks coming soon from Hoffman fabrics; would love to see Aurifil offer threads to complement them!

  60. Modern Method, Set Sail or Sweet Floressence look like they would work best with a special set of threads! Love, love Aurifil – many thanks!

  61. I'd like to see a box for Modern Method or Shelburne Falls. I really like Aurifil thread and use it frequently but the boxes they have out now aren't quite right for the darker palettes in these lines (which both look gorgeous!)

  62. Honey Honey. No, Nursery Rhymes. Wait! Maybe Sakura Park. Pastel Kona Solids? How is a person supposed to choose just one? One thing I did learn is that I have to get busy and whittle down my stash so I can make room for new fabrics!

  63. I would love to see Aurifil make a collection for applique like on bobbins making it easier to carry and own more colors. Thanks for the chance to win anything Aurifil!

  64. You bring us so many beautiful fabrics to blend rich and wonderful coloured threads with..which really does makes it difficult to choose! I think The Storybook range would greatly benefit from an Aurifil coordinated box though, thank-you:) grace(at)amnet(dot)net(dot)au…
