Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: August

Welcome to Month 8 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 holding on to Summer with all of our might! Pull up a lawn chair and settle in for what may be your last month of outdoor stitching. We’re sad, but then again, the thought of curling up under a quilt, snuggled by a fire, does sound pretty appealing;). Where are you taking your hand-stitching?

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These blocks were originally made with Aurifil 12wt.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

Bari J created her Seed Packet Lily Stitchery block in August of 2012. She selected the image for this block because…

“The block is based on the lily image from my LillyBelle line of fabric.”

Bari J used our 12wt in a range of colors for this original block including:

  • 1125  teal – outer frame: back stitch
  • 2024  white – dotted frame: French knots
  • 2605 grey – inner frame: back stitch
  • 2240 orange – stem: stem stitch
  • 2240 orange – left leaf (top): stem stitch
  • 2605 grey – left leaf (center): stem stitch
  • 2140 yellow – left leaf (bottom): stem stitch
  • 2240 orange – top right leaf (outer): stem stitch
  • 2605 grey – top right leaf (center): stem stitch
  • 2140 yellow – bottom right leaf (top): stem stitch
  • 2605 grey– bottom right leaf (center): stem stitch
  • 2240 orange – bottom right leaf (bottom): stem stitch
  • 2810 turquoise – flower (outer): stem stitch
  • 2140 yellow – flower (inner): stem stitch

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!
