DMC Summer Blog Hop: Cross Stitched Micro Quilt Cuff
I am so excited to have been asked by Bev of Flamingo Toes to be a part of the DMC Summer Blog Hop she coordinated! We’re also all be doing giveaways for a fabulous DMC prize pack! Those details are at the bottom of this post. I was given the choice of creating a tutorial for either DMC‘s stitchable cork, stitchable mesh, or faux leather cuff. I jumped on the opportunity to create a pattern and tutorial for their stitchable cuff. You may remember I created two other projects using the stitchable cuff: a cabbage rose and a color block pattern.
I have been on a quilting kick lately, and if you follow me on Instagram, you know I started a quilted table runner, and I’ve designed and painted two mini barn quilts. When I was brainstorming my project for this blog hop, I knew I had to somehow incorporate a quilt block pattern. The basis for this design is the log cabin quilt block. I was so excited to start after I figured out the design, I forgot to take the tutorial pictures! So you’ll notice the cover pictures and the tutorial pictures are of two different colored cuffs 🙂
Read on to learn how to make this pretty Cross Stitched Micro Quilt Cuff and download the FREE pattern, too!

DMC Embroidery Floss in the following colors:
- Use all six strands of floss.
- Instead of creating a knot, leave a 2” tail when starting each color and weave it in as you stitch. Don’t carry over your floss across all three quilt blocks..that will leave floss loops that could get tangled and damage your cuff.
- Make sure you stitch your “X”s in the same direction to keep a uniform look.
- At the end of each color on each quilt square, create a loop knot, and then weave it in.
