Giveaway Mondays - Aurifil

So we have a giveaway here at Lily's Quilts every Monday.  And this week the giveaway is brought to you by Aurifil, makers of my favourite threads and the only threads I ever use.  They come in a variety of weights and a colossal variety of colours so you can always pick the perfect one.  My go-to threads are the 50 weight which are the thinnest, finest threads, perfect for machine piecing, hand piecing and applique.
And this week we are giving away this fantastic 12 spool thread set curated by Victoria Findlay Wolfe which contains the perfect combination of neutrals and bold colours.


For any of you unfamiliar with the Aurifil designer of the month club, it is hosted every month by Pat Sloan over at Aurifil's blog and this month's designers are the sisters and design team at Me & My Sister… Barb Groves and Mary Jacobson.  Every month you get a free block pattern and the chance to win some wonderful Aurifil threads by taking part and making the block.  And this is this month's gorgeous block. 


If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning Victoria Findlay Wolfe's fabulous thread set:

1.   Leave a comment, any comment.
2.   Click to follow Aurifil on Facebook and let me know that you did. 
3.   Share this giveaway on social media and add one comment per share.  

And the winner of last week's prize of Jane Davidson's beautiful Australian quilt collaboration book, Desert To Sea, was picked by random number generator and is...
