I’m super excited and incredibly honored to be October’s Aurifil Designer of the Month. I was asked over a year ago to participate and have had a lot of time to think about the theme and what I wanted to design. I finally get to share all of the details and the block with you!

This year’s theme is “The Places We Go — Blocks Inspired by Favorite Places”.
Aurifil Block of the Month 2018: Theme: "The Places We Go". Blocks inspired by different places.

My block, Central Park, was inspired by my favorite public park in the greatest city—New York City!

Central Park and NYC hold a special place in my heart as it’s where my husband, Jason, and I got married. When I found out that my block would be released in October, I decided that I had to design a NYC-themed block since it is also my anniversary month.
