Aurifil is the most popular thread in the quilting industry.

  • Multiple blocks created by one quilter may be shared in the same link-up.

  1. Thanks for all you do Patty. I was thinking yesterday I'm not sure I could host a QAL. It's too much work - lol! :D

  2. I can't believe I'm enjoying hand piecing so much ☺ And not linking up at the last minute LOL


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
