April Showers with Aurifil!

Aurifil April
Didn't your breath catch as you saw Gail Pan's sweet stitching? It's so pretty! Gail is April's Aurifil Designer of the Month. Download your pattern at The Aurifil Buzz. I have mine traced and am ready to stitch on the patio this weekend.

I've known about Gail for a number of years ... she's been designing for her business ... Gail Pan Designs  ... for quite awile. She's one of that cool group of Australian designers I love to follow. Stitching and applique ... one of my favorites ... is her specialty.

I enjoy seeing what Gail is up to on her blog is because like me, she's the mom of three boys. We're in a special club when we're the only girl in the house!

Gail and her friend, Helen Stubbings, just returned from a three week teaching adventure in Europe. I've been following along with her on her Facebook page. Those girls had quite the time!

I know you'll fall in love with Gail's projects ... if you see something you need let me know and I'll order it at Quilt Market next month. We're staying in the same hotel so I know I'll be bumping in to her there as well as on the show floor. Can't wait!

So get out your fabric ... your Frixxion pen ... your April Aurifil thread kit ... and get to stitching! Take it in the car if you're traveling for Easter. Hasn't this designer program been a great way to track 2012? We're going to have a wonderful keepsake when the year is done!

Happy stitching!
