Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: July

Welcome to Month 7 of our Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot! 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! This month, we are celebrating Summer! Where are you taking your hand-stitching? On the porch… at the pool… or still cozy on the couch with a great movie?

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These blocks were originally made with Aurifil 12wt.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 July’s block!

Sarah Fielke created her Colors of Summer block in July of 2012. She selected the image for this block because…

“I wanted to go with something seasonal – which is obviously seasonal for the USA not for Australia as it’s freezing cold in Sydney right now! The top of the words are the sunshine and heat and the bottom is the water and the middle section and knots are the sand at the beach. My idea of summer!”

Sarah used our 12wt in a range of 6 colors for this original block:

  • 1103 – red
  • 2140 – yellow
  • 2810 – light blue
  • 1125 – dark blue
  • 2240 – orange
  • 2865 – green

We were lucky to again work with the lovely Hilary Jordan, Aurifil’s Social Media Coordinator, also of  Young Texan Mama. Hilary used our Aurifloss to complete this block with the following featured colors:

  • 2735
  • 2888
  • 1133
  • 2250
  • 1320
  • 2120
  • 2530

YAY Summer!

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!
