When you spend so much precious time quilting, it’s only natural that you want every stitch you make to be perfect. The good news is, there are a few nifty tools and materials out there that could help take your projects to the next level. Aurifil’s new collection of Color Builder threads is one such example.

Lustrous, strong and made from 100% cotton, this collection has 12 mini sets of thread inspired by (and named after) Italy’s most vibrant and colourful destinations. From the lemon groves of Sicily and the pink-sand beaches of Sardinia to the beautiful teal waters of Capri and the stark city grey of Milan, each mini set will transport you to Italy’s cinematic landscape and, more importantly, it will bring a wonderful depth of colour to your quilts, transforming them into real showstoppers.

Aurifil’s Color Builders are made in Italy, just outside the fashion capital of Milan, and each mini set gives you three large spools of 50wt thread – a warm, medium and dark shade within the colour palette.

Just like a fine wine, different geographies make a difference to how cotton is grown. Aurifil’s cotton is grown in the renowned cotton growing region of Mako in Egypt, right beside the River Nile, so you can rest assured that the thread is of the highest quality possible. While the colours are absolutely stunning, the thread itself is a pleasure to use. Whether you’re working on simple straight-line quilting, detailed free-motion designs or simple piecing, you’ll be able to craft a masterpiece quickly and easily.
