  4. Jeanne in Ohio July 5, 2016 at 5:16 am #

    We own a houseboat at a lake near our house, and our plan is to spend sunny weekends with our friends in the Redneck Yot Club. I love the colors of both your fabric and the threads!

  5. Vanni July 5, 2016 at 5:21 am #

    Great colors – and what a perfect match. Looking forward to two weeks of Denmark and a lot of outdoor hand quilting :-)

  6. Sarah P July 5, 2016 at 5:21 am #

    Beautiful fabric and thread! We are going to Tennessee to see family. I plan to hold my baby nephew for as long as my sister will allow, and read to the toddler nephew as long as he will allow.

  7. Gene Black July 5, 2016 at 5:24 am #

    At this point, my summer plan is to go with the flow and try to stay cool in the sweltering Alabama heat.

  8. Kathryn July 5, 2016 at 5:24 am #

    We are heading north to the warmth of Queensland to help our Australian winter school holidays feel more like summer!

  9. Sherry Massey July 5, 2016 at 5:26 am #

    My plans are to spend more time with my 2 grandsons. Love the colors of the thread. Thanks

  13. Ashley July 5, 2016 at 5:30 am #

    I don’t have any travel plans… but that means more sewing time :)

  17. Kathleen McCormick July 5, 2016 at 5:35 am #

    Beautiful colors….and we are spending a month on an island in ME, where we have a year round house. Haven’t done this for quite a few years due to schedules.

  18. kathee July 5, 2016 at 5:36 am #

    What lovely thread! We are in the midst of moving five hours away. House farm and cows all on the move. This summer i have to fence our new land and in spare time getmall the quilts, blankets, sheets and misc items for my two new grandaughters being born in the fall….busy timres ahead

  19. Mary July 5, 2016 at 5:36 am #

  27. Chrystal C July 5, 2016 at 5:49 am #

    Love your new fabric line! No big plans, just relaxing:).

  28. annehaun July 5, 2016 at 5:53 am #

    My plan is the same as yours – No Plan – I prefer spur of the moment activities.

    How exciting! No more summer travel just a camp here and there

  31. Amy L July 5, 2016 at 5:56 am #

    Dixie and her thread remind me of Summers in the South when I was a girl. Our family will be headed to Holden Beach, NC in a few weeks, and I’m looking forward to bathing myself in the ocean and those colors soon.

  32. Ba Gold July 5, 2016 at 5:58 am #

    O my those are simply beautiful colors so summer sunshine they would work perfectly for the doll outfits I have planned for my darling Leilani 18 in dolly

  33. Nellie July 5, 2016 at 5:59 am #

    Sew sew pretty. No plan for the Aussie winter holidays. Chilling close to home. Our summer holidays we will go down south to Augusta – we do every year!.

  34. Sarah July 5, 2016 at 6:02 am #

    Love your new fabric line and it doesn’t get any better than aurafill! We just got back from big cedar on table rock lake in southwest Missouri. We are gearing up for a Few days in Chicago with family before heading to new buffalo Michigan for another low key week on the lake. Can’t wait! Thanks for the chance to win.

  35. Jane Eilderts July 5, 2016 at 6:02 am #

    We have a daughter getting married so we are just going to do a couple short weekend outings.

  36. Diana B. July 5, 2016 at 6:03 am #

    I really love the colors! I’ll be traveling to Wisconsin to the family cabin on a lake for some summer R & R. Of course my sewing machine makes the trip with me.

  37. Beverly July 5, 2016 at 6:04 am #

    Ooh, delicious thread colors. Beautiful fabric. Had a busy summer last year. Put new siding on our house this year so funds for summer trips is limited. We have no plans to go very far this summer.

  38. Debbie July 5, 2016 at 6:04 am #

    Love your fabric. My trip is to Seattle!

  39. Teresa@AureasKitchen July 5, 2016 at 6:06 am #

    I hope to go to the beach, some picnics and bbq and some sewing.

  40. ButterflyGeorge July 5, 2016 at 6:08 am #

    It will be summer here with six of our grandchildren off and on. Picking berries playing cards and quilting in between. Enjoying already. Love the colors of your new line.

  41. Nancy Anne in the Finger Lakes July 5, 2016 at 6:12 am #

    Enjoying my garden this summer and getting a jump on Christmas sewing! Love those colors!

  42. Bunny July 5, 2016 at 6:19 am #

    No big plans for the summer as we just recently had a lovely two-week vacation in the Netherlands. Beautiful country! Beautiful thread you have here too!

  43. Deanna July 5, 2016 at 6:20 am #

  44. Kristi Loudon July 5, 2016 at 6:27 am #

    beautiful fabric!! No big plans for the rest of the summer, plenty of quilting time!!!

  45. Dortha July 5, 2016 at 6:28 am #

    Can understand why you have heart eyes. Beautiful fabric and threads. I have no plans except to stay cool.

  46. Liz G July 5, 2016 at 6:37 am #

    We have had a busy summer so I’m jealous of your no plans. We are heading to Glacier National Park soon. I’ve never been there before so it should be a fun adventure! I love your Dixie line!!

  47. Paula July 5, 2016 at 6:37 am #

    I recently discovered Aurifil thread and love it! I’m now a thread snob. Your fabric is great and Iove the photo with the matching thread. Thanks for the awesome opportunity,

  48. Kim Adams July 5, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    Such pretty colors and fabric!! Our summer plans don’t seem to stop this year. We’re doing a lot of camping in the mountains with family!

  49. Laura July 5, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    We’re moving at the end of July, and then spending a week at a lake house with friends in August. Thanks for the chance!

  50. Stacey July 5, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    We’re going to Illinois for a week for my daughter’s softball tournament…..yay!!!! Good times!!!

  51. Susan July 5, 2016 at 6:40 am #

    We like to go salmon fishing on Lake Ontario in August. We are spending lots of time with our granddaughter this month. She loves to sew blocks together so maybe we can actually finish a project! I have lots of tops to quilt so I’d love some Aurafil in your pretty colors!

  52. Jane July 5, 2016 at 6:48 am #

    what pretty pictures, such a wonderful sight this chilly winter evening in Melbourne. My summer plans are firstly to get though winter and to whittle down my project list as much as possible.
    I have a new goddaughter arriving at the start of our summer (December) so I have an extensive list of what to make for her – at the top is a quilt.

  53. Lorraine July 5, 2016 at 6:52 am #

    Can’t wait for Dixie to arrive–I love the bright, cheery colors! I’ve just returned from trips to Hawaii and Europe, so now my summer plans are to stay home and quilt!

  54. Jan Altomare July 5, 2016 at 6:56 am #

    Love these colors!! We are heading to Alaska on Sunday.

  55. Sharon Coleman July 5, 2016 at 6:56 am #

    Love those colors! My summer starts with a trip to the Rock and Roll Music Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. A long drive from the Mississippi Delta! My husband and I are looking forward to a NY Yankees vs Cleveland Indians game while there. He graciously stops along the way and back at quilt shops I find on the Row by Row Experience. Needless to say, he’s awesome!

  56. Liz Samlow July 5, 2016 at 6:57 am #

    Very pretty colors!
    We might take a day trip to Shipshewana IN where I might find a quilt shop or two!

  57. sorchagirl July 5, 2016 at 7:05 am #

    Two weddings this fall have led to two quilting projects to sew this summer. Both will be scrappy in colors the brides chose.

  58. Mischelle July 5, 2016 at 7:06 am #

    I have no plans for the summet.

  59. LeAnn Hileman July 5, 2016 at 7:07 am #

    Wow! Fabulous colors! Leaving next Monday for 2 weeks in the White Mountains and cool weather.

  60. Melody A. July 5, 2016 at 7:07 am #

    such pretty colors that go with so many things, my summer doesn’t have too many trips but probably my 40th class reunion in Wyoming and see my sister who I miss a lot.

  61. Carol July 5, 2016 at 7:09 am #

    Gorgeous colors! Summer plans…another camping trip and hanging out at the reservoir?

  62. Allison B July 5, 2016 at 7:09 am #

    We have no big plans. My high school aged daughter loves her summer job and we’re just going to let her work!

  63. Tammy July 5, 2016 at 7:10 am #

    I would so love to own these threads!! Unfortunately our summer fun plans were put on hold by a hospital stay for one of my sons. He’s still recovering so we’re hanging at home this summer.

  64. Becky July 5, 2016 at 7:12 am #

    We’re planning a few short trips and a lot of dinners on the back patio! These threads are lovely :)

  65. Jocelyn July 5, 2016 at 7:13 am #

  68. Pam July 5, 2016 at 7:20 am #

    Fabulous colours! Can’t wait for your fabric to hit the shops! We live in Vancouver, so lots of beach time, it’s very fun! Have a wonderful summer vacation!

  69. Tracey Holzer July 5, 2016 at 7:21 am #

    Beautiful colours! Our family has a couple weeks of camping planned as well as a family reunion, swimming lessons and hockey school. Nothing too exciting! Thanks for this chance.

  70. RaeLyn July 5, 2016 at 7:25 am #

    Gorgeous! I love the simplicity of Dixie and the lovely saturated colors. Way to go! We’re building a garage this summer. Not the funnest, but great opportunities for the kids to work hard ;)

  71. Betsy July 5, 2016 at 7:28 am #

    I’m in love with the thread colors and the fabric. Heading to the beach in August to meet up with cousins I haven’t seen in years!

  72. Julie Rook July 5, 2016 at 7:28 am #

    What beautiful colors! It makes me think of all the salt water taffy I saw in Atlantic City last week!

  73. Theresa M July 5, 2016 at 7:29 am #

    I’ll be playing in two more golf tournaments, along with quilting of course. Hopefully with some new thread!

  74. Laura July 5, 2016 at 7:31 am #

    Love those colors. Sticking close to home with perhaps a couple of day trips.

  75. Sharon July 5, 2016 at 7:32 am #

    Just back from a week at the coast and preparing for a visit from the grandies! I would love to put these beautiful colors to work soon after.

  76. Sharon July 5, 2016 at 7:34 am #

    I am hoping to get to the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, NE in July. I was there several years ago and saw the wonderful exhibit of the Grace Synder quilt collection. It was absolutely amazing! Can’t wait to visit again.

  77. Glynette Trailor July 5, 2016 at 7:35 am #

    Terrific thread colors!
    We are inching ever so close to retirement and looking forward to a permanent vacation.

  78. Sandi Hunt Dawson July 5, 2016 at 7:40 am #

    Those are gorgeous!

  79. Ginny July 5, 2016 at 7:46 am #

    We’re at the beach!!!

  80. Karen July 5, 2016 at 7:47 am #

    My fun plans for the summer are to watch our youngest child graduate from BYUI, patiently waiting for Dixie and making Suburbs, and going fishing in the eastern sierras.

  81. Bethany July 5, 2016 at 7:49 am #

    Oh! Those colors make my heart smile!!!
    My big plans include a family reunion and an amusement park weekend.
    Happy summer!

  82. Stubbled Grapes July 5, 2016 at 7:50 am #

    Those are some gorgeous thread colours!
    I’m going on a narrowboat holiday in mid-August with my family. Should be an interesting experience!

  83. Coree Westmoreland July 5, 2016 at 7:57 am #

    What beautiful colors! We’re going to have some lazy days around the house and do nothing!!!

  84. Robby July 5, 2016 at 7:59 am #

    Those are fantastic colors, so refreshing on a hot summer day. We live in a place people love to vacation, so our summer travel is pretty limited as we enjoy it here. We did just book a long weekend at a favorite B&B that is only about an hour away. Close enough to be convenient, far enough away to not think about the regular ToDo list.

  85. Natalie July 5, 2016 at 8:00 am #

    Oooh, I’d LOOOOVE a set of these pretty colors!! Our summer plans included Girls Camp prep, Girls Camp, and post-Girls Camp — that was this weekend. Can you tell I’m the Stake Camp Director? 😂 Now I think we’re going to have to make some actual plans!

  86. Mary S July 5, 2016 at 8:00 am #

    Heart those colors too!!! My plans – spending more time with the Grands. Also some quilt field trips- hope to get to Quilted Strait.

  87. Sharon T July 5, 2016 at 8:03 am #

    No big plans for the summer. Unless you want to count some serious quilt making going on here! Love you fabric line…the colors are so fresh!

  88. Beth C. July 5, 2016 at 8:04 am #

    Beautiful colors! Our plans for the summer are for me to continue my PT from rotator cuff surgery & heal & become healthy & strong – have just begun to sew a little. Life is good!! Beth in AL

  89. Regina DeCapite July 5, 2016 at 8:04 am #

    LOVE, Love, love the thread colors and fabrics! Summer plans include helping our daughter move into her new home! :)

  90. Kimberly Scott July 5, 2016 at 8:06 am #

    Oh my goodness that thread set is perfect for this yummy fabric! I am fairly new to quilting, but just found Aurifil and I LOVE it!!!! I can’t wait to see your fabric in person! Thank you so much for sharing! I have no plans for the summer, but to learn more quilting skills! :)

  91. Janell July 5, 2016 at 8:08 am #

    The thread colors are so refreshing. We are planning a golf trip at the end of July with a group we have enjoyed for ove 40 years.

  92. marion shaw July 5, 2016 at 8:09 am #

    Wonderful Colours!! No plans for summer. Hopefully, I will be sewing.

  93. Becki Morrison July 5, 2016 at 8:11 am #

    We try not to travel in summer, too crowded going to Canada in the fall though

  94. Neta Decker July 5, 2016 at 8:18 am #

    Love the colors! Only plans for the summer is to enjoy it. Winter comes too soon.

  95. Kristy Wilkinson July 5, 2016 at 8:19 am #

    Gorgeous colors of fabric and thread! We will be going to Montana in August to fish and relax. Then take some time on the way home to see waterfalls and maybe Crater Lake. There’s even a B&B getaway in the midst for my sweetie and I. Looking forward to it! K-

  96. Gina July 5, 2016 at 8:20 am #

    Awesome colors and I love Aurifil threads!

  97. Ginny Worden July 5, 2016 at 8:20 am #

    Yummy fabrics and threads. Staycation for us this summer.

  98. Jean July 5, 2016 at 8:23 am #

    Staying at home, but went to a patriotic concert last wk, and company coming in Aug.

  99. paqui July 5, 2016 at 8:25 am #

  100. Gloria CottenGloria C July 5, 2016 at 8:25 am #

    I LOVE these fabrics!! The colors are bright and beautiful and the thread is perfect for them! Can hardly wait for them to be available! Thanks for the giveaway!

  101. sandy L July 5, 2016 at 8:26 am #

    Such beautiful colors, i would be thrilled to win them. I will spend the month of Aug. at Lake Cowichan, hope the lake still has water in it.

  102. Anne July 5, 2016 at 8:27 am #

    I am trying to be practical and use up my older thread collection, but am having more trouble finding matches for today’s fabrics. Would love to try the set. Such lovely colors.

  103. Karin July 5, 2016 at 8:27 am #

    Great colors! We had a very busy June so I’m looking forward to laying low in July!

  104. Anna-Marie July 5, 2016 at 8:27 am #

    We have a few day trips planned but no big holiday. Love your fabric line. Thanks for the chance to win the threads – they’re gorgeous colours.

  105. tori smith July 5, 2016 at 8:29 am #

    Love this fabric collection and matching threads too. I’ve already had my big summer holiday (in Peru and Bolivia) but am hoping for some nice sunny weekends at home and in Cornwall

  106. Teresa Stanulis July 5, 2016 at 8:32 am #

    No summer plans until mid-August when we’ll travel from Texas to Michigan to drive with our son back to college. It will be a nice escape from the summer heat and we’ll have a chance to visit with my husband’s family up there!

  107. Stacy July 5, 2016 at 8:33 am #

    Love those colors!! We just spent a nice long 4th of July weekend with family at our cabin in Utah

  108. Pamela M July 5, 2016 at 8:33 am #

    No vacation plans for me this year, other than quilt classes at my LQS!!!!!

  109. Saira July 5, 2016 at 8:34 am #

    ooh, jolly coincidence, we’re coming to Vancouver too (from the UK!) – yay for the holiday, boo for the tumbling exchange rate! Beautiful fabrics and threads

  110. Sandy Maxfield July 5, 2016 at 8:36 am #

    Grandkids, sailing, and of course quilting!

  111. Cynthia Brunz July 5, 2016 at 8:37 am #

    Lovely colors! I have no fun plans this summer. But with 3 weeks off I am sure I can find some trouble to get into. Thanks!

  112. Anne July 5, 2016 at 8:38 am #

    My summer plans are moving to Florida and starting a new job. lol Do I know how to live it up during the summer or what?!?

  113. joanne July 5, 2016 at 8:39 am #

    Beautiful Colors for beautiful fabric–SOOO Springy!1

  114. Kris Fisher July 5, 2016 at 8:40 am #

    I’ve never used Aurifil threads and would love to give these beautiful colors a try! My plan for the summer is to do LOTS of quilting right here at home.

  115. Bev July 5, 2016 at 8:48 am #

    Love ! Love those colours

  116. Joy Flora July 5, 2016 at 8:50 am #

    We want to go to the Wisconsin State Fair this year. I will be our first time. We live in Illinois, but I’m looking forward to the road trip and FAIR FOOD!!!

  117. Hildy July 5, 2016 at 8:50 am #

    Love the colors and Aurifil thread! So far I don’t have any plans for summer but eating a lot of ice cream;-)

  118. nan hohenstein July 5, 2016 at 8:50 am #

    Our summer fun is happening now. Have had guests off and on since early June. Love having visitors.

  119. Stephanie July 5, 2016 at 8:53 am #

    As a brand new quilter, my summer plans include teaching myself as many techniques as possible and acquiring fabrics and threads. Your Aurifil thread pack would certainly get me off of the white thread I used in my first quilt top! I have just started my second. Can’t wait to see your Dixie fabric at my local shop. I’d love to try that pin cushion. Plus my husband, daughter and I will likely take a quick road trip to Las Vegas (cause it’s nearby and nutty) and to visit friends in Sacramento. Thanks for your aspiring blog.

  120. Megan Huston July 5, 2016 at 8:55 am #

    Love these combos! And a huge thank you for your beautiful heart quilt pattern we have all used for the quilts for pulse!!!!

  121. Janis T July 5, 2016 at 8:57 am #

    Beautiful thread and fabric! Pretty quiet summer so far, just a few quick trips to see grandchildren and family. Soon we’ll have a new puppy that will take all of our attention and energy. It’ll be like having kids again!

  122. Margaret July 5, 2016 at 8:59 am #

    No big plans here, either. We hope to get in a couple of weekend trips up to Lake Tahoe area.

  123. Carly Bell July 5, 2016 at 8:59 am #

    Gorgeous, bright, cheerful colors!! And Aurifil thread rocks my quilty world. This summer the kids and I are spending some time in Ohio with family while my hubs does Army stuff in Europe. Maybe a trip to Edisto Island, SC later in the summer if our schedules work out.

  124. Kim Rice July 5, 2016 at 8:59 am #

    The biggest plans I have are to celebrate my grandsons second birthday!!! And a local craft fair!!! I am loving this Dixie collection. And the Aurifil matches perfectly!!!

    Yummy Yummy Yummy…….colors and prints. Hoping to catch up on hand sewing and vegging out when I can as I recover from minor surgery. I live in a vacation area, so we natives tend to stay close to home or parked in our driveway to avoid the traffic. It’s okay — we get to enjoy the sights all the other nine months LOL

    I love the colors in your fabric and in the thread collection. I also love that your plan is to have no plans…that used to be my favorite thing about summer vacation when my kids were growing up. Now, I just enjoy that I can sew all day if I want to. I also like to go see the grandkids.

  174. Cathyewbank July 5, 2016 at 9:38 am #

    Great giveaway! So far my aurifil collection consists mainly of neutrals, so I’d love some colours!!! My plans for the summer is to just enjoy it! Any way I can!

  186. Leah Nicole July 5, 2016 at 9:45 am #

    Beautiful colors!
    Our plan is also no plan, every summer we make a big deal and wear ourselves out..this year we are staying close to home and enjoying oueselves ❤️

  189. Shelly V July 5, 2016 at 9:47 am #

    I’ve been reading for blog for awhile and just finished my very first quilt using your strip and flip and binding using the quilt back tutorials. Thank you so much for all the help!! This summer I plan to sew a fun runner for our dining room table and I’ll be going to Sea World for the first time with my fiance. :)

  190. Jennifer July 5, 2016 at 9:50 am #

    Love those colors. Our summer plans are just swimming at the pool and relaxing at home.

  191. Jeanne July 5, 2016 at 9:51 am #

  192. Tiffany July 5, 2016 at 9:55 am #

  193. Little Black Cat Quilting July 5, 2016 at 9:56 am #

  194. Tammy July 5, 2016 at 9:56 am #

    These colors are beautiful!! I’m hoping my summer plans will include a vacation with the hubby, likely to Hawaii.

  195. Jennifer July 5, 2016 at 9:57 am #

    Our plan is also to have no plans! My husband and I both have this week off (although it’s supposed to rain) so we are just going to look out the window in the morning and then decide where we are taking our 2 year old that day. So far it’s been lots of time at the park but we are also hoping for a nice day to go to the lake. This week is also my birthday so we get to spend time with friends. If your coming to Vancouver you should try the newer sea to Sky gondola in Squamish. We haven’t done it yet but it’s on our list. Friends that have done it loved it!

  196. Terry July 5, 2016 at 9:57 am #

    Getting ready for girls camp & then relax & enjoy my garden.

  197. Lori Lindhartsen July 5, 2016 at 9:58 am #

  198. Jeanie July 5, 2016 at 9:59 am #

  208. Kaylyn Owens July 5, 2016 at 10:08 am #

  216. Jenee Hoffman July 5, 2016 at 10:17 am #

    I’d love to give these a home! My summer is filled up with kid’s sports and studying for my CPA exams. We did get in a fun three day trip to San Antonio, Texas though.

  221. Patti D July 5, 2016 at 10:28 am #

    Ooh- love the fresh colors and the fabric! Just recently started using Aurufil & is now a favorite sewing notion.

  222. Rachel guthrie July 5, 2016 at 10:29 am #

    Fun summer plans are just to relax! I would love to use the aurifil thread and see what all the fuss is about!😜

  223. Paige July 5, 2016 at 10:29 am #

    We are currently heading back home to MD from a long weekend at the OBX beaches, spending the 4th with family and celebrating a couple of birthdays.

    So pretty. My summer plans are to have fun with my four daughters

  226. Karen Overton July 5, 2016 at 10:38 am #

    Have never tried aurifil thread – would appreciate the opportunity. I’m a Longarm quilter and take the month of July off for quilting retreats and sew-ins with my guild. It’s my time to get personal projects done. My birthday is in July and each year I make a “birthday quilt”. This year it’s a fussy cut beach umbrella fabric made into kaleidoscope lemoyne stars. I dearly love summer and this thread collection just speaks of summer fun – especially with the matching fabric 😎

  227. Kelli Marshall July 5, 2016 at 10:40 am #

    Dixie is a beautiful line…
    plans for the summer is just to survive:) 5 kids under the age of 7 and a dad that is deployed. Living in the heat of texas, we are hoping to have time pass quickly for him to come home and to not melt in the meantime:)

  228. Corrie Tollett July 5, 2016 at 10:44 am #

    I love Dixie and can’t wait for it! I also love the color of the thread. We went in Disney cruise to Alaska and it was beautiful! Now we plan on enjoying being home.

  229. Danielle Laing July 5, 2016 at 10:46 am #

    Hoping here on Amelia Island you would come visit us (and bring that beautiful thread). You could stay at the Ritz Carlton and if you’d like, we could see in my studio. I would make sangria, shrimp ragout, and bread pudding.

  236. Diann Bottrell July 5, 2016 at 10:59 am #

    Your Dixie fabric line looks beautiful, and it would fun to have that lovely collection of thread to go with it! Our summer plans include spending lots of time exploring our Colorado mountains.

My family and I are headed to Battle Lake, MN for a week at the end of the month, and then I am taking my oldest son (who will be 15 August 13) to Florida on a plane and everything in August. It will be his first time out of the Midwest and on a plane! We are so excited!!!

  256. Charlotte Huber July 5, 2016 at 11:57 am #

    No huge plans this summer… my boyfriend has some family visiting from England in August, that will be the most exciting event! Other than that, planning a day or two to go to the beach and relax.
    Gorgeous thread collection! (& fabric to match!)

  257. Peggy July 5, 2016 at 12:00 pm #

    A wonderful giveaway. Aurifil colors are so pretty and sew good too. Only summer trip is to attend my granddaughter’s Bible Quizzing National Finals. Her team won first place in the Texas district and now onward to the national finals. Her aunt made the most profound statement I’ve heard in a while. A minute in God’s Word is a minute in the very presence of God! Can’t get better than that!

  258. Monica July 5, 2016 at 12:01 pm #

  265. paulsonfam July 5, 2016 at 12:09 pm #

    Hazel looks so great! I just got back from our epic summer trip (8000+ miles!), so my plan for the rest of the summer is to laze around as much as my seven kids let me!

  266. Laura July 5, 2016 at 12:12 pm #

    Just completed our major summer trip, which included a visit to the Mendocino coast area of California (ahhhh), and a quick jaunt up to southern Oregon to visit family. Thanks for the giveaway!

  272. Tina short July 5, 2016 at 12:33 pm #

    No travel plans as yet because we are expecting a new Grandbaby at the end of August but will probably head to Florida or Alabama towards the end of the year. I’m also very excited to be getting my very own ‘New Baby’ – a Bernina 770 – sqeeeeeeeel !

  273. Pauline C July 5, 2016 at 12:54 pm #

    Love this collection of fabric and threads. We are heading to Arizona and California – it will be hot and dry, just how I like it.

  274. Karen July 5, 2016 at 12:54 pm #

    Our “summer” vacation doesn’t actually happen until public school starts back in the fall. We wait to go to the beach after everyone is in school!

  278. Carmit July 5, 2016 at 1:11 pm #

    Gorgeous! I’m saving my fun for fall, when I get to spend hours and hours in classes with Angela Walters.

  279. Hazie July 5, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

    What sweet and cool colors! We already did our big summer plan. Went exploring along the middle Mississippi River on the Great River Road. Wonderful trip–I recommend it!

  288. Helen LeBrett July 5, 2016 at 1:46 pm #

    Those are some of my favorite colors!! I’ve been waiting for Dixie to come out: I’ve got a few quilt patterns that I’ve designed and I’d love to make them with Dixie, and that Varigated blue would be a perfect color to quilt it in! And no big summer plans: my hubby is super busy with his business this time of year, so we don’t go anywhere till October. But sewing will certainly be on my list! :-)

  289. Vicki Gray July 5, 2016 at 1:47 pm #

    Gorgeous! My summer plans are to finish some quilts!!!

  290. Laura July 5, 2016 at 1:50 pm #

  303. Sam jones July 5, 2016 at 2:44 pm #

    Enjoyed reading all the comments. Travel, relaxing and sewing seems to be the theme. We took a trip of a lifetime for us last year to the Grand Canyon ….we live on the east coast. So this year going to enjoy some day trips with our 2 year old grandson and seeing for our fall craft fairs. Those threads would be greatly appreciated and enjoyed.

  304. Hannah July 5, 2016 at 2:47 pm #

    Learning to quilt and my first top is almost sewn as I write, now I’ve got to try and quilt it eek!! I’ve booked a sewing course in the summer break – some me time! Then family time in Cornwall, UK, on the coast, it’s beautiful. So enjoy your blog, I’ve been a ‘lurker’ for a while and learned so much, thank you. Love your thread colours, luminous, match your fabrics beautifully. Best wishes.

  310. Jennifer Klich July 5, 2016 at 2:59 pm #

  314. Tania July 5, 2016 at 3:11 pm #

    Beautiful threads to match a beautiful fabric range! It’s winter here so my plan is to keep warm & do more sewing.

  321. Claudia W. July 5, 2016 at 3:25 pm #

    My “fun” summer plans are to build a shelter for my old mare and mini horse from pallets so they can be out of the cold this winter. I am saving up the pallets for it right now. I have 24 pallets and need probably around 50! I know that has nothing to do with sewing or thread at all, but my further plan is to relax after a day of building, with an evening of sewing!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win some pretty eye candy!

  322. Donna July 5, 2016 at 3:41 pm #

    The fabrics and threads are so nice. Thanks for the giveaway of the threads. I have no summer plans. I am just staying home and relaxing.

  323. Kathleen Dalecio July 5, 2016 at 3:45 pm #

    I really like your Dixie fabric and am practically drooling over the bundle paired with yummy Aurifil threads!
    Later this summer I’m going to WA state to visit my son & his family-YAY! Just before Labor Day, we’ll be going to Lake Tahoe to visit with my step-son & his family. In the interim, I hope & pray I can finish 2 quilt I started l-a-s-t year!

  324. Ang July 5, 2016 at 3:54 pm #

    This thread looks amazing. Love the colors. No big plans for our summer. Maybe a day trip here or their. Seems like we have more fun on little unexpected trips than if we plan a big elaborate trip. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  373. Gale S July 5, 2016 at 7:24 pm #

    Love these colors. The Dixie line would go well with my Hazel fabric. Only summer plans are to get out in my new kayak.

  375. Kelly O. July 5, 2016 at 7:29 pm #

    these are gorgeous! I would be counting myself lucky to win such a collection of yum! This summer our children used their 2 years saved newspaper route money to buy themselves an above ground pool! It has been all that and a bag of chips, I tell ya’! They are wet more often than dry–such fun!

  376. Lisa July 5, 2016 at 7:35 pm #

    Love these colors!!! I’m new to quilting but am quickly building a thread and fabric collection for all the projects I want to do…so these would be a lovely addition!

  377. Renae July 5, 2016 at 7:39 pm #

    My plans for the rest of the summer are simple: stay cool and enjoy the summer break with my children. renae1225@gmail.com

  378. Julie Kennedy July 5, 2016 at 7:40 pm #

    No major plans for the summer because things are about to get very busy at work.
    Your Dixie fabrics are gorgeous, and the Aurifil threads match perfectly!

  379. Anne Simonot July 5, 2016 at 7:49 pm #

    No big plans this year; we have two houses, one is for sale — so no extra $ this summer. Planning some fun day trips close to home though — like you.

  380. Sheri July 5, 2016 at 7:54 pm #

    We are doing a road trip to the SE corner of Washington then Hood River. Trying to hit all parts of Washington and using small highways and backroad

  387. Janice Holton July 5, 2016 at 8:23 pm #

    No other plans at the moment. We just got back from a trip to the Washington coast to see friends over the 4th. Might see how many things on our bucket list for Idaho places to visit we can cross off!

  388. Nyla-Jean de Boer July 5, 2016 at 8:32 pm #

    Canadian East Coast! Road trip! I have never tried Aurifil. Would love to try. Thank you for a chance.

  405. Julia July 5, 2016 at 10:19 pm #

    Hi, both thread and fabric are really beautiful. I’m quite new to quilting so I would like to build my stash. Plans for the Summer? I do not really know already if the sun comes to us in Germany maybe I will enjoy a day at the beach anywhere otherwise I will enjoy that I don’t have to do anything. And of course I will sew.

  406. Zenia Rene July 5, 2016 at 10:21 pm #

    Congrats on the new collection and the collaboration! They are vibrant and refreshin. I’m super excited about getting my laminate floors installed next month… AND I’m making plans to go to my first Quiltcon in February! Pick me, pick me, pick me…Hahaha. Thanks for the chance to win!

    So envious of our northern hemisphere friends although our winters are not really that brutal and ought not be complaining…..upside down dreaming of summer and being warm again (what beautiful colours these are!)

  413. Linda Cornwell July 5, 2016 at 10:33 pm #

    I love the new colors in Dixie! I’m always drawn to bright colors, and Dixie is no exception. I’m not doing much this summer except trying to stay cool (as electricity rates go up here in San Diego), like so many others.

  414. Dian July 5, 2016 at 10:34 pm #

    Beautiful match! Can’t wait for your fabric to be available!

  415. cahirasnana July 5, 2016 at 10:36 pm #

    Such yummy fabrics and delicious threads. It is winter here in Aus but the sun is shining. No plans to do anything except enjoy being at home.

  416. Shannon Sciortino July 5, 2016 at 10:36 pm #

    I love the pretty colors! We are camping this summer at the beach! Our family camps with other families. It’s a great bonding time and it creates great memories for our kids!

  417. Carol S. July 5, 2016 at 10:38 pm #

    Who wouldn’t love those beautiful colors! Count me in!

  420. Sam July 5, 2016 at 10:41 pm #

    Love the beautiful colors. They just make me want to start sewing. But I need to finish my current projects that are staring at me. I am in the middle of making stockings for the family. Summer plans…staying cool and inside in this crazy Arizona hot summer. Looking forward to camping trips up north where the kids can actually play all day outside and not get heat stroke!!

  421. Lois July 5, 2016 at 10:41 pm #

    I have no plans for the summer, except to do as much quilting as I can.

  422. M. Elaine Worthen July 5, 2016 at 10:44 pm #

    The threads and Dixie are both beautiful! I’m going to the juggling festival in El Paso with my daughter. She will juggle; I will quilt, crochet, and read!

  423. Jessica Dunstan July 5, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    Love these colours! We’re in the middle of winter here in South Africa so my winter plans include a ton of sewing :)

  424. cheryl mendenhall July 5, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    Love your new Dixie collection and love Aurifil. The colors are devine. Our summer plans center around our GrandGirl, Matilda, coming with her mom and dad for a long visit from Berlin, Germany. Other than weekly Skype chats we haven’t seen our daughter and her family since last Christmas. I’m learning to make toddler clothes and would love to make some from your fabric collection. Thanx fir the chance to win such a gorgeous prize. 😀

  425. Erin July 5, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    Your thread colors are gorgeous! I’m a few weeks behind you, Allison – we just had our baby #4 – our first boy, though! Our summer plan is just staying home with him until we venture back home to Olympia to visit family & friends in August. Cheers to a baby-filled summer!

  426. Charlotta Bright Norby July 5, 2016 at 10:48 pm #

    I’m going to visit my family in Denmark for almost four weeks in August. I immigrated from there when I was nineteen, 39 years ago, leaving my birth-family behind. I’m very fortunate that I get to visit them almost every summer. As I always do, I’ll be bringing a major hand-piecing project, and I usually get a lot done.

  427. quiltingholliday July 5, 2016 at 10:50 pm #

    No plans to go away but planning to have one of my grands come spend a wk with of us doing lots of cooking & baking together & enjoying our horses,cows & dogs. The thread collection is as pretty as your fabric collections! Thank you for the opportunity to win the thread collection!

  428. Patti Levine July 5, 2016 at 10:55 pm #

    First I have to say the threads colors are scrumptious!! Just love them all. As for summer plans, we hope to head tonorthern New Mexico to escape some of the heat and see parts we have been too…hopefully Taos for a few days. Enjoy the summer fun!

  429. Lisa July 5, 2016 at 10:59 pm #

    I just love the things you create. My hopeful fun plans are to find some time to do some quilting!

  430. Dianne H. July 5, 2016 at 10:59 pm #

    I love the colors in your fabric line, Dixie. I will be sure to watch for it in our local quilt shops. The Aurifil thread colors match perfectly and are so pretty. Love using Aurifil for my piecing and quilting. No “fun” plans for this summer. We are getting our house in Cleveland ready to sell. After my husband retired and we moved to a new house, our oIdest daughter, Kim, lived there until she passed away. It’s a lot of work – painting, pulling up carpet, replacing the old carpet in the family room with a floating wood floor, updating light fixtures, etc., etc…… We are getting help from family members, for which we are very thankful. Enjoy your summer.

  431. Jeanne Atkinson July 5, 2016 at 11:01 pm #

    Portland, OR is our destination, love that part of the country. And some quilting will get done, also.

  432. Mary July 5, 2016 at 11:08 pm #

    Those colors are delectable! I will look for Dixie as those fabrics make me want to make little quilts for friends to share their vibrant colors. They remind me of summers spent lying on the grass staring up at the clouds, swimming in the creek, and eating outside at the picnic table. This summer I want to find a new job! I will find some time to sew, too. Thanks!

  433. Sharon D July 5, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

    Hi love your stuff and would love the thread. Such pretty colors. My plans is going to lake Havasu to play on the seadoo and paddle board.

    Thanks for sharing all your beautiful ideas with us. I’m a beginning quilter and about to start with one of your pattern. All the best for you and your family! Oya from Germany

  435. Eunice Sanchez July 5, 2016 at 11:21 pm #

    Beautiful colors. I want to become more adventurous in thread colors while machine quilting This kit would be alot of help to start achieving this goal. New England States so beaitiful.

  438. virginiahammon July 5, 2016 at 11:35 pm #

    Great collection of bright color! – and I use Aurofil for all my piecing;-)

  439. Pat Gornall July 5, 2016 at 11:36 pm #

    As always, your new collection is stunning, and Pow Wow was the first pattern bought at the start of my quilting journey a few years ago! It’s next on the list for my 4 year old grandson – fabrics pulled! We live here in UK – big family reunion holiday planned visiting son and family in Brisbane with our 2 daughters and families. Cousin mayhem with 6 kids and 2 cats expected:)))

  440. Therese W July 5, 2016 at 11:42 pm #

    This summer I am finishing the alterations on bridesmaids gowns for our son’s wedding. He and his fiancé will be married in August. This will make five of our children married, one more to go! Then I will begin making baby quilts, as we have three grand babies due to arrive in the next seven months! Life is good! Your fabrics are beautiful.

  441. Bente Iversen July 5, 2016 at 11:44 pm #

    I would love to try some of these tread

  442. Rita Montgomery July 5, 2016 at 11:45 pm #

    Beautiful. Our summer plans include having our 13 year old granddaughter fly out to visit for 3 weeks. Haven’t seen her in a year.

  443. Sue Stubbings July 5, 2016 at 11:47 pm #

    Summer is a long way away here in oz, cold dreary days here in Melbourne Victoria Australia.Great however for sewing and snuggling up under quilts while you sew binding on. We do plan to take a week in August in North Queensland where you can still swim in winter and have a weekend exploring the city I currently call home.

  444. Judith Blinkenberg July 5, 2016 at 11:49 pm #

    We left California on June 24th pulling our boat across Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico, to Texas. I wrote all about our trip on Facebook, but did not begin till 2 days after leaving. We sure surprised our daughter and grandchildren! I even recorded a video of the door opening and my daughter crying!! We are staying for two birthdays and will then drive back to CA, but without the boat. We are having fun but we don’t like the humidity here is n Texas. Love your threads!

  445. Jackie July 5, 2016 at 11:49 pm #

    Beautiful colours so vibrant. My only plan is to sew more.

  446. Jane Jowitt July 5, 2016 at 11:58 pm #

    Lovely colours and a perfect match for your beautiful fabric. Apart from going to Sweden this summer to see two of our beautiful grandchildren, I shall be making 2 baby quilts for my niece and her husband and nephew and his partner, both of whom are having babies in the Autumn. One is a much waited for IVF baby. My sister is over the moon and as she can’t sew anymore because of severe arthritis, I am only too pleased to have the opportunity to make more quilts! Have a good summer everybody. Jane, Edinburgh, UK.

  447. Ann July 6, 2016 at 12:03 am #

    Beautiful fabric and threads. It’s winter here in Australia, but our days can still be warm and sunny. Looking forward to our summer at the end of the year. Thanks

  448. Stephanie July 6, 2016 at 12:06 am #

    I love the bright, cheerful colors of your line!

    We’re heading to Cali to the beach. Then I have a Row by Row Experience quilt to begin/finish. I am having a hard time trying to figure out a color scheme in making the rows have a cohesive look. Have you ever made one of these quilts before? If so, I would gladly welcome any tips. Happy Wed!

  449. Annabel Haylett July 6, 2016 at 12:17 am #

    Such beautiful fabric and thread, Alison. Thanks for the give away!

  450. Fran July 6, 2016 at 12:22 am #

    Love the colours in your Dixie line & the matching Aurifil threads are just darling! I live in Australia & am in the middle of a (relatively) cold winter, so I’m currently dreaming of warmer weather & summer adventures later in the year. Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

  451. Kathryn July 6, 2016 at 12:25 am #

    I love your colors! We are leaving in the morning for a 3 week RV trip through northern California, Oregon & Washington.

    Yummy colors! I love the name of your new fabric line since I am from the Heart of Dixie…Alabama! Our grandchildren visited us last month. We had fun at the beach, neighborhood fishing and our annual bowling tournament. Working on home renovations during July. Not sure about August!

  453. Beth T. July 6, 2016 at 12:28 am #

    Everyone is coming to our house this summer–and we have a new puppy! So, how’s that for fun?

  454. Paula July 6, 2016 at 12:46 am #

  462. pippaknight July 6, 2016 at 2:07 am #

    What lovely colours.
    I would love to say my summer plans were not to do anything but I have 5 weeks of summer before I got back on ship and 3 of those I am away sailing. I need to try and finish the cardigan im knitting during that time.

  463. Ann O. July 6, 2016 at 2:13 am #

    Love the fabric! – I’d love to make a bunch of fabric trays with Dixie for my sewing room. This summer I plan to finish a quilt – including the dreaded machine quilting!

  470. Susan July 6, 2016 at 3:04 am #

    We have a couple of beach trips coming up—one is my husband’s work conference, the other is just fun. Really looking forward to these as we’ve had a really busy spring/early summer prepping for a wedding in our sunflower field. I love Dixie—reminds me a bit of Hazel and looks like they will go nicely together. I have a good bit of Hazel….need to get some Dixie to mix in!!

  471. Kristy Smith July 6, 2016 at 3:11 am #

    Summer plans include moving the family to Guam to follow my military hubby. Praying my sewing machine and quilting gear survive the two month journey via boat!

    Love the colors in the Dixie line!

  472. Marian Allen July 6, 2016 at 3:11 am #

    We are spending a few days on a lake in Vermont with friends.

  474. plymouthknits July 6, 2016 at 3:18 am #

    Love the colors and Dixie fabrics! Summer started early for me. We have vacationed for a week in June with my Albuquerque DD, SIL and DGC in the Colorado mountains. We returned home to Massachusetts only to pack up and then do a road trip to Alabama to visit DSand DIL. At the end on the week we meander toward home stopping to visit DD and SIL in New Jersey. I can’t wait to get back to my sewing room!

  475. Sharon D July 6, 2016 at 3:19 am #

    Those colors are absolutely beautiful.

  476. debbierhodes July 6, 2016 at 3:20 am #

    Beautiful colors. I am planning day trips to local area quilt shops for row by row kits with my 84 year old mom. We both managed to finish a row by row last year and win a group of fat quarters.

  477. charlotte m. July 6, 2016 at 3:22 am #

    Beautiful colors. Can’t wait for Dixie. We’re going to San Diego next month for a family get together.

  479. Bree Pon July 6, 2016 at 3:30 am #

    Hope that Dixie will be coming to the UK soon as well. As for summer plans, here in the UK……well buying yet another umbrella for the never ending rain.lol.

  480. Little Quiltsong July 6, 2016 at 3:34 am #

    We too have NO Plan for this summer – so that means I can sew more :)! Enjoy your weekend holidays – they are often the best!

  481. Christina in FL July 6, 2016 at 3:42 am #

    Summer mornings in SW FL are so tropically delicious! I love getting out to hear all the birds singing, smelling the sweet morning scents and going for a quick walk. I get a lot of inspiration then.
    Wow, great match of the Aurifil to your fabric line! Love the colors and your fabric is SO fun! Thanks for the opportunity to win this great package. I’ll have my fingers crossed.
    I also enjoy hearing what everyone else is doing for summer. :)

  482. Catherine July 6, 2016 at 3:42 am #

    Those colors are gorgeous! I am using aurifil thread on my current quilt. Love the smoothness of it….no plans for the summer…just relaxing and plenty of time for quilting. Thank you.

  483. Sharon Cumiskey July 6, 2016 at 3:48 am #

    These colors are so cheerful. They would go with every color I ever quilt. Congratulations on your beautiful Dixie line.

  484. Erica Johnson July 6, 2016 at 3:57 am #

    Loving the fabrics you’ve been creating Allison. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your talents as your Halloween bag tutorial inspired me to start sewing. :)😃

  486. Cheryl Saunderson July 6, 2016 at 4:03 am #

    Beautiful shades! Especially that aqua variegated one. Love Aurifil thread your new Dixie line as well. Not much planned here either. Going to Florida for a surprise 60th birthday celebration and then going to the Country Living Fair in Ohio for a long weekend. Love that and always find too much to buy there. Happy summer!

  487. Betty Ayers July 6, 2016 at 4:03 am #

    Those colors are the best and, somehow, I don’t have one of them so would love to win this!!!
    We have just returned from a week at the beach (or soundside in our case) and look forward to going again at the end of season. In the meantime, I plan to sew (QAL’s, samplers, a bit of collage, pouches) and sew and sew- well, you get it! Thanks for the chance.

  488. Nancy Nelson July 6, 2016 at 4:09 am #

    I love the colors. I collect Aurifil and use it almost exclusively in my projects.

  489. Nancy Lee July 6, 2016 at 4:11 am #

    My next vacation will be beachside in October. Can. Not. Wait.

  490. Karen Sebor July 6, 2016 at 4:13 am #

    The aurifil thread colors are prettier than a rainbow!!! I need to make an “I SPY” quilt for a precious little great-niece and great nephew to share! Can’t wait to get started before summer is OVER!! Thank you for the opportunity to maybe win!

  515. Anna Turner July 6, 2016 at 4:55 am #

    I made my first quilt two years ago, then in 2015 we spent the year in Durham NC where my husband had a lung transplant . We are back home in Tennessee and I’m so looking forward to spending time in my sewing room . I love bright happy colors and would love to have this collection of thread.

  531. Janet Schultz July 6, 2016 at 5:33 am #

    No major summer plans as we are saving for our BIG Thanksgiving week trip to New York to watch my son and his Greendale High School Marching Band (WI) march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!! One of 8 high schools in the country chosen this year. Watch for their performance of Step In Time in front of Macy’s along the parade route. A once in a lifetime trip for sure ;c) Thanks for the chance to win those beautiful threads. I don’t have much in the way of colored threads so this would be a great start! shopgirl7232 at yahoo dot com

  532. LymaLu July 6, 2016 at 5:36 am #

    These thread colors are so versatile, and are perfect with the Dixie fabrics! Your new line is so bright and cheerful!

  537. thegoogs July 6, 2016 at 5:43 am #

    I do have a plan to visit my son, his wife, AND my granddaughter this month in Dallas! Besides that I am spending lots of time in my workshop; sewing and lesson planning for my 6 students to whom I teach sewing and crafts. I love love love working with Aurifil but it is hard for me to find where I live. These colors with your fabric are calling my name…thanks for the giveaway.

  538. Danette July 6, 2016 at 5:43 am #

    Such beautiful fabric! No plans to go anywhere as will have family coming here! Enjoy your summer!

  539. Megan July 6, 2016 at 5:43 am #

    It’s winter… hoping for snow! I’m interested to know what others do, I’ve always matched thread colours to fabric but my neighbour a quilting teacher says always use light grey for everything.

  540. Karyn July 6, 2016 at 5:45 am #

    My summer plans are to sew three skirts. Not usually a garment sewer, so this should be interesting!

  541. Dianne Sanders July 6, 2016 at 5:46 am #

    Your thread and fabric are happy and beautiful colors of summer. I plan to enjoy my twin granddaughters, just home from the hospital.

  542. Jean July 6, 2016 at 5:47 am #

    Such gorgeous colours! Aurafil is my favourite thread!

  546. Linda July 6, 2016 at 5:51 am #

    I think everyone’s plans are better than mine–foot reconstructive surgery on the 21st(big ouch) However, getting stuff together and working on quilts for Hospice so these threads would be great(your fabric line is greater and what a match!)

  547. Valerie Messina July 6, 2016 at 5:51 am #

    Beautiful colors, and I love the fabric! My summer plans include day trips with my 8 year old nephew, improving my baking skills, and maybe finding a job.

  548. Roxanne July 6, 2016 at 5:51 am #

    I plan to spend lazy afternoons playing in my craft room. I love your fabric collections and I love the coordinating threads.

  549. Sarah Elliott July 6, 2016 at 5:51 am #

    Beautiful fabric and thread! My big, fun summer plans have already come and gone. The rest of my summer will be spent on some serious quilt making – which will be a lot of fun too!. Other than that, Hubs and I may try to sneak off for a beach weekend later in the summer.

  550. Wendi M. July 6, 2016 at 5:52 am #

    Beautiful colors of thread, yummy. Thanks

    We don’t have plans to go anywhere, but I hope to get lots of sewing done when I’m not at work :-)

  554. Evelyn B July 6, 2016 at 6:06 am #

    Love the colors. We are planning to spend a week on the Maine coast and I get to bring my machine to sew and watch the beautiful scenery.

  555. Jacqui Van Meppelen-Scheppink July 6, 2016 at 6:08 am #

    What lovely colours! Would love to win those :-). We are going to Holland in 10 days for a three week vacation! Looking forward to that. New inspiration for quilting :-).

  556. nonniew July 6, 2016 at 6:15 am #

    Beautiful colors! I just finished making a “To the Point” throw quilt for a friend, and I love it! Thank you for the excellent pattern plus the finishing ideas here on your blog!

  560. Carla Schattle July 6, 2016 at 6:21 am #

    Our son got married in June to a wonderful young woman. Three days later, another son graduated from the Fire Academy and won the Most Valuable Cadet award. Joyful celebrations for our family. Love the colors of these fabrics and thread- happy colors! thanks for the chance!

  561. Karin July 6, 2016 at 6:23 am #

    I love the colors of the thread and fabric! This summer I am having a great time teaching young (and some not so young) girls to sew! I love to pass this skill on and am doubly blessed because a couple of these girls are my cousin’s granddaughters!!!

  562. sue July 6, 2016 at 6:26 am #

    My plan is to find a week with no obligations and stay at home. Ideally with all devices off, a stack of books and a couple of quilts a cut out and ready to sew. Oh and pizza/meals delivered.

  563. Lisa McGriff July 6, 2016 at 6:27 am #

    My fun summer plans includes welcoming our new grandson in about 2 weeks! Would love to win this beautiful thread box!!

  564. Diana Weddle July 6, 2016 at 6:28 am #

    I don’t think I have ever seen fabric and thread match so well. Great job. Going to see my kids who have moved from Texas to Seattle ! I miss them dearly!

  565. peggy hendrick July 6, 2016 at 6:29 am #

    We attend an annual Steam Engine and Tractor Show in Edgar Wisconsin every year…last year we ended up going two days in a row because there is so much to see. Besides the show they have a huge flea market..found an old singer in a beautiful little cabinet for $10.00…

  566. Laurie July 6, 2016 at 6:33 am #

    Gorgeous colors for gorgeous fabric. Summer plans–cleaning out a house and moving in. We’re halfway there!

  567. cheryl hammond July 6, 2016 at 6:34 am #

    I am in love with your Dixie fabric line. The Aurifil thread is the perfect compliment!!

  568. Jessica China July 6, 2016 at 6:37 am #

    Love the colors! My plan for the summer is to finish out our vacation at the beach and then make a bunch of quilts when I get back home.

  569. Gerri July 6, 2016 at 6:38 am #

    What beautiful threads! I can’t wait to get my hands on Dixie. Such pretty colors.

    No summer plans here which is fine with me. It leaves more time for sewing! ;)

  570. Meran Taylor July 6, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    Wonderful summer colors. It is winter where I am. I am making an eye spy quilt at present.

  571. Justine July 6, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    We have no real plans either this summer, it gets pretty hot here in VA. Your fabrics are just beautiful, I’d love to use them in one of your patterns. Aurifil

  572. CJ Reed July 6, 2016 at 6:40 am #

    WOW ! Love the fabrics and thread colors. How exciting to have them match perfectly. We have no further summer plans. Just to stay cool. Then, a nice fall trip to Santa Fe, NM. Thanks for offering this great give away ! Love everything you do.

  573. Judy Zoll July 6, 2016 at 6:41 am #

    We’ve been following grandsons’ baseball and summer basketball games. Maybe a trip later in the summer or early fall. Thanks for the opportunity to win some gorgeous threads. I am a new convert to aurifil threads. This would expand my selection. No one near me carries this thread and it’s hard to choose colors online.

  574. Cathy B. July 6, 2016 at 6:42 am #

    Beautiful colours! Hoping to get to Vancouver myself this summer!

  575. Kristi July 6, 2016 at 6:42 am #

    Lovely fabric! I’m going to make a sprocket pincushion today. I could use some of that gorgeous thread too :o)

  576. Linda Nelson July 6, 2016 at 6:43 am #

    I have never sewn with Aurifil but have always wanted to indulge. They really are beautiful threads.

  577. DarleneMAM July 6, 2016 at 6:43 am #

    Those thread colors? Perfect! Shiny and bright, just like your fabrics. And I love using Aurifil.

  578. Laura Fenwick July 6, 2016 at 6:43 am #

    Beautiful colors!!! Summer plans: Road trip!!!

  579. sgrancio July 6, 2016 at 6:48 am #

    Amazingly lovely colors! A short trio east to NY to visit family, early morning walks on the trail and weekends with the grands will fill up my summer.

  580. LittleBirdQuilting July 6, 2016 at 6:50 am #

    What lovely, bright, clear colors! I love your fabrics! Hazel is one of my all time favorites!

  581. Jo Suret July 6, 2016 at 6:51 am #

    Yummy colours! Short holiday to the seaside with my little girl and my mum, can’t wait! x

  582. Diane W July 6, 2016 at 6:52 am #

    My daughter and family just named their puppy Dixie. Our summer plans were…we just got home from Alaska late last night. Visiting our son and his family. No other plans, unless a quit couple days at the beach.

  583. Christine Atwell July 6, 2016 at 6:56 am #

    Love those colors! I’ve already traveled this summer, spent a fun week in Florida. Planning to relax at home (in between work for the rest of the summer ).

  584. Nancy Pennington July 6, 2016 at 6:59 am #

    What a luscious set of threads and fabrics – I can’t wait to see them in person!

  585. Joni Keskey July 6, 2016 at 7:01 am #

    Our summer fun has already happened. Both families came up for their last visit “north”. We have the house up for sale and are packing and sorting for a move in early fall. Sad time for us but beautiful memories.

  586. jude jones July 6, 2016 at 7:02 am #

    no plans…just surviving! cant wait to see more baby pics and love your new dixie line and thread!

  587. Barb Malmberg July 6, 2016 at 7:03 am #

    Such pretty colors! Plans for the summer include getting away from Texas heat and going to the northern California coast. Awww…..I can smell that fresh ocean breeze.

  588. Joyce Hartman July 6, 2016 at 7:05 am #

    Those colors are beautiful!! Our only summer plans are to go to our farm about an hour away every opportunity we have & we are going to plan a trip to Branson for a few days soon before our daughter goes back to school!

  589. Suzie F. July 6, 2016 at 7:06 am #

    Love the beautiful colors! We are planning a Schlitterbahn trip–fun experience!

  590. deanneellen July 6, 2016 at 7:07 am #

  593. Beth July 6, 2016 at 7:12 am #

    A busy summer with lots of sewing and a few small road trips! Thanks for the chance to win those beautiful colors:)

  594. Debby July 6, 2016 at 7:12 am #

    Those thread colors are so beautiful together. Why not travel to Victoria? The ferry ride is so fun for kids. Lots of splash pads for little ones, hikes, lakes. Of course, Vancouver is beautiful too. You can’t go wrong in BC.

  595. Barbara July 6, 2016 at 7:18 am #

    Threads are beautiful. Would be perfect for topstitching bibs. Charity sewing this weekend.

  596. Mary Lou July 6, 2016 at 7:24 am #

    I see a few prints I will HAVE to have! No particular summer plans, but will be traveling up the coast (Pacific side) this fall.

  597. Alison Uhrbach July 6, 2016 at 7:28 am #

    Planning to drive to Eastern Canada in the Fall, but will stay around home this summer. Always enjoy your blog! our tastes are similar.

  598. carolyn montgomery July 6, 2016 at 7:32 am #

    i am going to my daughter’s in austin and we are going to hop the row by row quilt shops in her area and then am going to the san antonio area and row with a friend. shop, shop, shop.

  599. Carla July 6, 2016 at 7:35 am #

    I love getting your emails. Always excited to see what new beautiful quilt you’ve made. Summer plans….. nothing exciting. Doing projects around the house. Maybe I’ll do more sewing/quilting…

  600. Laura July 6, 2016 at 7:36 am #

    No special plans here-just hanging with family and sewing when I get the chance. Gorgeous colors!

  601. Carolyn J July 6, 2016 at 7:37 am #

    LOVE these fabrics and of course, Aurifil threads are the best and the only thread to use and these colours are fabulous. I am back and forth to Vancouver Island because of family and aging parents but love ‘going home’ to Victoria. We winter in Arizona so am quite content to be here at home in the Pacific Northwest.

  602. Tricia H. July 6, 2016 at 7:38 am #

    Hello we will be renting a beach house for a couple of days! And just hanging out at the house swimming and eating! Love those thread colors!
