2012 Designer of the Month Block Setting Pattern

Pat Sloan Aurifil stitchery pileHi I’m Pat Sloan the Aurifil Designer of the Month coordinator. Every month in 2012 one of our fabulous Designers created an adorable stitchery using our 12 wt threads.

At the end of the year their stack of blocks were all at MY house.. I’m so lucky!!

Pat Sloan Aurifil stitchery all fullSherri Falls created the rough draft of the setting and it was my job to use the Moda’s “Sassy”  Layer cake that I had to set the blocks. This was GREAT fun! To be honest it’s a bit of a challenge to use just one fabric line sometimes, but the design team did such a great job with their blocks that it was easy to create a super cute layout.

The binding will be scrappy black fabrics from the line. Most of these black fabrics have some peach or orange in them. Similar to what you seen in the one skinny inner border

So many of you shared your embroidered blocks in our flickr group, they are amazing! I hope you’ll share your top once you set your blocks. We really want to see them!
