February Aurifil Designer BOM

The February Aurifil Designer Block of the Month was released a few days ago and I had so much fun sewing it up this morning!!!   February is all about Blue-Purple and  Maureen Cracknell's super adorable Dutch Treat block  has me hoping for spring soon :)  Isn't it just so fantastic!!



I had such a good time really digging through my scrap drawer to find the perfect blue-purples ;)   It is such a fun color because it really does look blue sometimes and other times it looks more purple.   So fun!!!  And I love how well the prints play with that fun white/grey background.   Sometimes even it reads a little blue-purple in the right light.  


This block went together fast.  I truly think I spent more time looking for and cutting up the right fabrics than actually piecing the blocks, not that I am complaining about that, it is always fun to look through pretty fabric scraps!!  I am debating adding some stitching in that gorgeous Aurifil 1200 Blue Violet .   It is just such a perfect match, I just need to decide what to stitch ;)  



So that is my Aurifil February Block!!!  You can find the Maureen's fantastic pattern for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Maureen's interview.   She is such an amazing fabric designer and it was so fun to get to read all about what inspires her!!!  

I am so looking forward to March because it is my month and I can't wait to share my block!!!  

Have a Happy Quilting Saturday!!!
