New 'clubs' I've joined recently

If you have been reading along on my blog you will notice I'm getting right into this quilting caper. By no means an expert - pfftt - but having a load of fun. 

I couple of things I've recently signed up for that you might be interested in are the Aussie Aurifil Club and the Aussie Kona Club

MsMidge has been distributing Aurifil for a while but I love the idea of a curated collection each month by amazing bloggers around the traps. Kinda takes the guess work out for me.

First up is Angie from GnomeAngel and oh boy she has picked some truly gorgeous colours. Look at those pretty pinks and purples (actually they are #4030 – Pomegranate #2510, #1100 – Red Plum, #2530 – Blossom Pink and #2510 – Light Lilac). 

I love that you have the choice of subscription to suit your needs - I did a trial with small spools at 40wt and I think that suits my needs right now. I would prefer to gather a collection of colours I can use on my projects. If I need to quilt something bigger (and mind you I haven't even attempted that yet!), I can always buy a large spool of one colour. But you get to choose what suits you best. 

Next up is the Aussie Kona Club. The first month of May was launched with an amazing collection chosen by Molli Sparkles - Poppy, Cyan, Wasabi, Titanium, and Dark Violet. I adore the cyan aqua blue. Wow!

The photo below is a sneak peek from Angie as she is the blogger selecting for June - with Regal, Berry, Morning Glory, Sangria and Honeysuckle. All matching her Aurifil choices. Isn't that awesome. 

MsMidge is coming up in July, followed by Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts in August.

Again, choose what suits you. For the moment I've gone with the fat quarter bundles but you can also order half metre and metre. And if you are interested ... might be worth ... having a little at Angie's blog ... ya know.

You don't have to be a quilter to enjoy these two clubs. I can see them being used in loads of projects I do. 

Are you a subscriber of any others?

  1. Thanks so much for sharing Jane. I'm so thrilled you like them. I had a lot of fun choosing colours and I still think I could do more versions of bundles - there's just so much variety out there. I can't wait to see what you make with them! (Please share them with me!) <3
