I expect it will always hold that title!
The package insert describes it as follows:
"The origins of the sampler have been obscured during the passage of time. The 'examplar' or 'samplar' was firmly established by the 17th century. At that time these generally long and narrow pieces seem to be repertories of stitches and designs intended for future use.
This piece reflects the general elements found in early pieces. There are 14 muted tones in the reproduction"
It is worked on 25 count natural linen and measures 8 x 32.5 (stitching area only).
I am re-framing my piece, so I thought this would be an ideal time to share it with you.
This is the top 1/3
I like band samplers but my next counted thread project might be reproducing a Quaker piece.
This is the middle section.
Kits are available HERE.
I also like the Scarlet Letter selections HERE.
Are you a quilter only?
