May Day tulip mini quilts with free motion applique

After making the jar of tulips mini quilt for the April Aurifil Artisan challenge, it made me remember that May Day was coming up! Do you give flowers to your friends and neighbors on May Day? It's a tradition I was introduced to as a young girl, and I decided to make some quilty flowers for my friends this year!

A Bouquet of Tulips

Tulips in a jar mini quilt using Island Batik fabric and Aurifil thread

This month's Aurifil Artisan challenge was to feature your favorite Aurifil thread weight! I didn't even have to think about it! I absolutely love the 50wt!! I use it for piecing, machine applique, free-motion quilting (on both my domestic and longarm!), stitching on binding...

It took a bit longer to think about what I wanted to make. More sunshine is happening these days, and I've really been admiring the tulips blooming around our neighborhood. That was just the inspiration I needed to make a mini quilt!

Quilt Candy Virtual Trunk Show

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

Today kicks off a fun event with more than 60 of my designer friends!

Quilt Candy Virtual trunk show on Facebook Live

From April 1 through April 10, different designers will present 15 minute trunk shows live on their Facebook page! 

One trunk show every hour, on the hour, starting at 12pm EST until 8pm EST every day!

Most of the trunk shows (maybe all??) will be saved on each designer's Facebook page so you can go back and catch up and watch all the ones you want!

I'll be going live on my Slice of Pi Quilts Facebook page twice during the event! And as a bonus, I'm going to do the live events on Instagram too!

My first one is tonight (April 1) at 6pm EST, and again next week at the same time! (April 8 at 6pm EST) Be sure to like my Slice of Pi Quilts Facebook page so you'll get a notification when I go live!

Check out the full schedule below! Enjoy the show!!
