A Bit of Subtle and a Giveaway to Lift your Seasonal Blues

Welcome - welcome Quilty Friends!
I'm excited to guest post on the
Aurifil Blog today sharing
a free project & tutorial:
~ The Subtle Tree ~
an 11" x 13" mini quilt.
The Subtle Tree is an exercise in thread painting, machine applique, and free motion quilting on a home sewing machine using my debut Aurifil Designer thread collection,
The Subtle Sampler.
Summer Heat or Winter Blues
have you down ?

The Subtle Tree can be stitched in a weekend and will brighten most any decor.
The tutorial video (below) will take you through the steps necessary to
Subtle Tree.

Be sure to click to the Aurifil Blog and
download the Supply List,
watch the video tutorial (below),
pickup The Subtle Sampler
at your favorite shop,
and get making your own
Subtle Tree.
