August Aurifil Designer BOM

The August Aurifil Designer Block of the Month was released a few days ago and I was pretty excited because I knew this block would go fast and with the craziness of the start of school, I totally needed some fast sewing in my life !!!  I can't even say how nice it was to sit down and have a finished block 20 minutes later ;)    August's block was all about Yellow Orange and  Brenda Ratliff created this super happy Bright Sun block!!!    Isn't that just so fun!!!

And I had to laugh this morning as I tried to take a picture of the block and there was zero sun out.   Is it a little silly that I am posting a Bright Sun block on Eclipse day??  I got a kick out of that.   Anyhow, this little sunshine block is sure brightening my day ;)

I was super grateful to have my Aurifil 2145 Yellow Orange thread to help me pick out the right color fabrics for this block.  I realized right off that I have a lot of yellow, a lot of orange, but not so much Yellow Orange.  So yet again, I am glad this was a quick block that only used 3 prints or I was going to be a little stuck on fabrics ;)   And don't you just love that fun background print from Sherri and Chelsi.   It fits the bright sun just perfect!!!

So that is my Aurifil August Block!!!  You can find Brenda's fantastic pattern for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Brenda's interview.     And if you make your own Bright Sun Block  be sure and enter a picture of it at Pat's blog ;)  Every entry is eligible to win a Large Aurifil Thread Kit!!!!!  

Only 4 months to go ;)   I am so excite to see this fun sampler come together!!!

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
