Favorite Aurifil Thread Weight

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

The truth is that I love any thread that gets the job done. So to pick a favorite means I need to pick my favorite job...

Right now, that's hand sewing with Aurifil's 12 weight cotton.

I've fallen in love with this closed-seam patchwork technique that's based on the traditional Korean patchwork called bojagi. Each seam is finished without leaving the fabric's raw edge exposed. The result is a double sided piece of patchwork.

A few years ago, I worked on bojagi curved patchwork blocks for the #100dayproject. I made over 100 quarter circle squares for the project. It was such a portable activity, that I now find random quilt blocks in the oddest places. Eventually I'll gather them all for a big quilt.

I've made little boro collages using off cuts from my magazine design projects. I love the idea of little bits of artwork that grow from a zero-waste mindset.

I'm trying to use offcuts that with the bojagi stitching as well, but I'm not always finding that the results are usable. The ones below are leftovers from making 6" quarter circle square template pieces (the concave pieces).

Even if I'm not sure what I'm going to do with those pieces, I do find that the process is worth it. The stitches are meditative for me. And the Aurifil 12 wt is just thick enough to be noticeable while also gliding through the fabric easily. Perfect for any potential stressful plane flights (not that any of us are taking any of those during this pandemic!)

I feel lucky that I got to travel a lot this spring. I think I snapped the photo below on my way to QuiltCon in Austin, Texas, in February. I was finishing up some class samples for my Bojagi-inspired Stitching workshop.

I made a set of napkins for class, and I love the effect of the color block patchwork accented by gorgeous little Aurifil stitches.

They're just even enough to look classy with the tiniest bit of organic wonder woven in...

And of course, when you put them to use in everyday life, the world feels a bit happier and you can nestle further into the cozy comfort of a handmade home.

So there it is. It's perfect for piecing and embroidery and hand quilting... Definitely worthy of being a favorite thread!
