Prairie Grass Patterns by April Rosenthal

Let me introduce you to April Rosenthal and her wonderful quilt designs from Prairie Grass Patterns.  
April has been a big help to us and even designed our awesome banner and badge. Not only does she have html skills, but she's a fabulous quilt designer. Talented girl!
Check out more of her patterns and her blog.  She's also getting ready for her first booth at Market! Good luck, April!  We're looking forward to seeing you that Saturday night at the Quilt Market Meetup too!

Aurifil Threads

As we continue planning the Blogger's Quilt Market MeetUp we want to thank our awesome sponsors for enhancing this event.  First off, we want to thank Alex at Aurifil Threads for his support. 
I personally use Aurifil cones in my own piecing and I LOVE them.  They last forever. (Alex, could you please invent a bobbin that will last as long?)  Aurifil has many different kinds of thread including Invisible, Wool, and Cotton in multiple weights.  All in an AMAZING range of colors. Watch the helpful Pat Sloan demo video on this page for explanations of which thread works best for which project.

To learn more about Auriful theads and to see the range of colors and products available visit the Aurifil webpage, Aurifil Buzz blog, Flickr, or like them on Facebook for lots of giveaway scoops.  Need help finding Auriful threads closest to you? There's an App for that. Alex also has a FREE Storefinder App here.

We will also have 5,000+ yard cones to giveaway the night of the Quilt Market Meet-up!!
Thanks Aurifil!
