Don’t forget: Giveaway Day continues through Friday at 5:00 p.m. PST– Supplies Giveaways + Handmade Item Giveaways!

Our Aurifil Mini Quilt Challenge continues! Next up is Amy Gunson of Badskirt. All of the mini quilts in our challenge were made with the beautiful Aurifil Simplify Collection.


Amy’s thread, ready for her next project.

The 50 wt cotton collection curated by Camille Roskelley is available in two sizes, in your local quilt shop or in Camille’s shop.

We’re sharing our challengers’ mini quilts throughout the weekend. (Here are Geta’s mini quilts, Jennifer’s mini quilts and Vanessa’s mini quilt.) We selected the following talented quilters to participate:

Amy Gunson of Badskirt used both complimentary and contrasting shades of Aurifil thread in each block of her raw edge appliqué mini quilt.


Do you recognize the shape in Amy’s squares? It’s a 45 adapter! Amy added a back and turned the mini quilt into a new pillow cover. We love how the thread is a critical, supporting player in this fun design. It adds just the right bit of whimsy and pop while letting the adapters take the show. See more at Badskirt!
