This colorful band sampler is worked on 35-count cream linen with silk threads in a palette of reds, pinks, greens, blues, & golds. The finished piece is 7” x approximately 25”. In a traditional band sampler style, the bands begin at the top with less complicated Double Running Stitch patterns & continue to increase in complexity & color changes as the piece progresses. The saying “We are a garden walled around, chosen and made peculiar ground a little spot enclosed by grace, out of the words wilderness” is incorporated into the piece. There is also plenty of linen to allow personalization.
