"Where quilters gather.... friendships blossom".

This beautiful sampler brings Quilting and Stitching together in a way that touches your heart. The top shows a scene familiar to most quilters, a group of friends working on a quilt together. Chatting and telling each other their stories, creating a quilt brings people together in so many magical ways. Regular meetings of a quilting group and the cameraderie of stitching are emotional ‘ties that bind’ when we work with our needles. The symbolic branches overhead, give the feeling of shelter and safety. Below the scene is a lovely line of lace, embellished with bugle beads, and right below that is a wonderful quilt of specialty stitches. The quilt is similar to the one worked on in the scene at the top of the sampler, and has the same colours. I’ve created the impression of some typical colourful quilt blocks put together with some special whitework blocks, and bound the entire quilt with a gorgeous floral garland band. What a beautiful quilt... I almost wish I had one on my bed! At the bottom of the sampler you can see a band of Hardanger with beautiful woven patterns, and a lovely band of flowers. Other special stitches in this sampler are Four Sided stitches, various Eyelet Stitches, Plait Stitches, Queen Stitches, Three Sided Eyelets, Ray Stitches, and Rhodes Stitches. You can choose to frame the top scene or to create a lovely pillow as shown here and on the back cover. The 25 squares are a wonderful challenge, but not too difficult for most stitchers. Enjoy stitching this sampler for yourself or your quilting friends! - Thea
