Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: June

Welcome to Month 6 of our Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot! We are halfway there and guessing you have a nice little stack of fabulous hand-stitched blocks. If you are just joining us, we’re presenting a brand new version of one of our 2012 blocks on the last Thursday of every month. We’ve been loving the opportunity to work on our hand-stitching, particularly because it’s a fabulous beach or picnic activity! Where are you taking your hand-stitching this Summer?

Aurifil offers 270 stunning colors of both our 100% Cotton 12wt thread and Aurifloss, our 100% Cotton 6-strand floss. This year long stitch-along is a wonderful excuse to give some of those colors a try. 😉

Original 2012 Designer of the Month Quilt Setting

These blocks were originally made with Aurifil 12wt. Would you believe that our floss hadn’t yet been introduced in 2012? We love that this reboot gives us the opportunity to try the blocks out with either a new thread, a new color way (hello B&W!), or both AND to reconnect with some of our beloved Designers of the Month! So without further pause, let’s check out June’s block!

Pam of Pam Kitty Morning created her Summer Flowers block in June of 2012. She selected the image for this block because…

“I love beautiful old embroidered linens.  My little bowl of old fashioned flowers reminds me of the pretty vintage linens you see in magazine photos.  I love the look
of them layered on towel bars, draped over baskets and bowls, part of some beautiful vignette.”

Pam used our 12wt in a range of 11 colors for this original block:

  • 2024 white
  • 1147 green
  • 5016 green
  • 5002 dark peach
  • 2135 golden yellow
  • 2250 red
  • 5005 med turquoise
  • 2805 sky blue
  • 2975 dark gold
  • 2920 antique gold
  • 2225 coral or light peach

Pam used our Aurifloss to work up her fabulous new version of the Summer Flowers block. We just love how the bright colors contrast perfectly with the B&W borders! Pam used the following colors: 2888, 2250, 2530, 1135, 1148, 2024, 5006, & 2425.

And because we love giveaways… Stitch up the block and upload it via the linky party below for a chance to win! Each month, we’ll randomly select a winner to win one small Designer Aurifloss Collection.

ABOUT THE AURIFIL DOM PROGRAM
Run by industry darling, Pat Sloan, the Aurifil Designer of the Month Program has been a mainstay of the Auribuzz blog since 2011. Each year, Pat brings together a new team of top-notch Designers, featuring one per month throughout the year. Posts generally share an interview, some fabulous images of projects made, studio spaces and more, a FREE block + a chance to win Aurifil thread. At the end of every year, Pat shares a suggested quilt setting. It is a great way to get to know new designers, to try new techniques, to share in a quilt along experience, and to do some collaborative quilting!

  1. There’s something wrong with your download link. The pages are filling in with black background and no pattern shows up.

    • Hi Terry — So sorry for this trouble! I’ll be sending along to you in an email. Hopefully this solves the problem!

    • So happy to hear this! I’m bummed to that so many are having trouble with the download. I’m looking into it now!

  2. Are there any photos, other than the monthly block postings, of the patterns in the new black & white color way? I’d love to see groups of these blocks in the new colors. Do any of the designers have one done?

    • Hi Suzanne —

      You can take a peek at the monthly linky parties to check out the versions done by those sewing along, but not everyone is doing B&W. I believe the only full B&W versions are those done by the designers and shown here in the posts. I hope that this helps! Thanks:) Erin

    • Hi Bonnie – I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve having trouble with the pdf. I will email a copy to you to see if that works! Thanks:) — Erin
