Tuesday Treats: A Cotton Mako’ 12 stitchery treat

I love surprises when they are like this email from Zoe:

 I have just finished a new block of the month quilt comprising stitchery blocks. The quilt has been made using Aurifil Mako 12 threads. I thought you might like to see a photograph.

This delightful quilt is a clever mix of pieced & embroidered blocks and is now available as a “Block of the Month” project directly  from The Blanket Box .

The embroidery has been stitched with Cotton Mako’ 12, simplifying the stitching preparation as the thread is ready to use directly from the spool.

There is no need to waste time winding a hank of stranded thread on to a card or separating, and straightening, the strands before threading a needle and there is no wastage as you only cut the length required as you work.

If  you wish to support your local store, and they do not have the pattern, suggest that they contact Zoe, at The Blanket Box  to inquire about the conditions for wholesale orders for this delightful Block of the Month pattern.
