Alice Caroline X Aurifil Floral Mosaic Thread Collection

£37.95

We are SO excited to collaborate with Aurifil to bring you this collection of beautiful threads. This thread collection is of the highest quality and is beautiful for both hand and machine sewing.

Aurifil’s 50wt thread is the most versatile and popular of their cotton threads. It is perfect for both piecing, subtle quilting and English Paper Piecing.  The colours have been chosen to blend with the Alice’s Wonderland quilt BOM to enable subtle stitching, but even if not a part of this BOM these threads will still be a great addition to your sewing box.  It is very strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams making it a great thread for patchworking.  It is also perfect for invisible ditch stitching, as the thread disappears into the valley between the seams.
10 spools of 50wt, 200m (220 yds). Colours and Aurifil Codes 2860, 1148, 2805, 1128, 2021, 2265*, 2530, 2425, 2214, 1135.
100% Cotton Thread
Uses: English Paper Piecing, Hand Piecing, Needle Turn Applique, Machine Applique, Embroidery, Machine Quilting, Blind Hem, Dense Machine Quilting, Whole Cloth and Micro Quilting, and Dense Background Designs.

To complete your quilt, you will also need these supplies, all available on our website:

  • A glue pen or stick to glue-baste to the paper pieces (available in our on-line shop’s Haberdashery section) – this is optional as you may choose to thread-baste.
  • Thread and medium/fine hand-sewing needles (available in our on-line shop’s Haberdashery section). We will also sell a special Aurifil thread pack which will be specially chosen to complement the colours of this quilt – this will be available soon.
  • Acrylic templates – we will be producing bespoke acrylic templates for this BOM soon.  If you were a participant of the Flower Garden Quilt BOM or the second Radiant Stars Quilt then you can re-use your templates – please make sure they have 0.25” seam allowance and are 2” sided hexagons, diamonds and triangles.
  • Wadding and backing fabric sized approximately 88″ by 79″ (223 by 200 cm);
  • Binding fabric to make a binding strip approximately 336″ (854cm) long;

We will have product listings for the correct size wadding, backing and binding for this quilt from late autumn 2023, when you may be starting to think about completing the quilt.
