Description

This listing is for a PDF pattern, instantly downloadable after purchase, so you can start stitching right away!

What is it about Quaker samplers that fascinates us? Whether it’s the simple geometry of the medallions, the random scattering of the designs, or the natural elements found on nearly all old Quaker embroideries – this sampler has plenty to offer! Taking inspiration from 18th and 19th century samplers, there’s over 60 original designs, and no less than 4 period alphabets and numbers from the mid 1800s that you can use (in conjunction with the empty grid paper) to personalise your work.

My very good friend Caroline Lavelle mentioned a beautiful quote by the 13th-century Persian poet and Sufi mystic Rumi. The quote seemed to go so well with Quaker aesthetics and their philosophy of love, peace, and tollerance, that I decided to incorporate it on this sampler. “Secret Sky” is also the name of a project Caroline is currently involved in, so make sure to keep an eye and ear out for that also!

This Quaker sampler measures 280 crosses in height, and 251 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen, it would approximately measure 17 1/2” by 15 3/4” (45 by 40 cm). This pattern requires approximately 10 – 12 skeins of embroidery wool: I’m currently stitching mine with Dark Blueberry threads on 32ct Natural linen by Zweigart.

This pattern is available immediately after purchase as a PDF file.

If you have any questions about this item or my shop, don't hesitate to contact me! I love hearing from you. Also check out my website http://www.modernfolkembroidery.com
