This area is part of section 38 on the For Love of Stitching band sampler. As I explained when I introduced this section I created the sampler after the Victorian fires. After an Australian bushfire the landscape is all ash and back trees. I decided to try and record this on my sampler using highly textured stitches.
The For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide. It consists of different strips of fabric which are are stitched together to form one long strip. It currently measures 24.8 yards or 22.75 metres long and I have more bands to add.
