The package for Quaker Samplings contains two different samplers, Quaker Sampling I and Quaker Sampling II. Today, I have photos of one of the samplers, Quaker Sampling I.
The first photo is from Nancy Norris. Don't you love the thread color she chose and also the exquisite frame?
Melissa stitched her sampler on 32-count Cameo Lugana from Silkweaver using Tennessee Red Clay thread from Crescent Colors. Melissa, what a lovely sampler! I hope you will let me see it in person in a few weeks when I'm in California for classes.
Next look at what Tracy Jenkins from Phoenix, Arizona did with the design!
Tracy wrote, "I stitched this in June of 2008 and crafted it into this quilted pillow case myself using fabric pieces purchased at Joann Fabrics. The pillow size is 16 inches wide by 11 inches tall. The design size is approximately 7-1/2 inches square. I stitched this with 2 threads of Crescent Colors Wavy Navy, DMC 930, 931, and 932. I also used some of The Gentle Art Simply Shaker thread in the color Freedom. I stitched it on 28 or 32 count star sapphire jobelyn over 2 threads."
Don't you love Tracy's very creative idea for finishing this project?
Tracy, your thread and pillow fabric choices are beautiful!! (As you may have noticed from many of my designs, I am partial to blue.) You did a beautiful job with both your stitching and assembly!
Quaker Samplings I and II have proven to be so popular that I am wondering if I should design a companion piece, Quaker Samplings III.
