For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 24

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 24

To all my Aussie readers Happy Australia Day! I will have the camera in hand taking photos after such a positive response to yesterdays post about documenting the I dropped the button box crazy quilt.

On with todays band.


This band illustrates fly stitch which has been tied off with a French knot. When you do that it becomes a stitch known as Italian border stitch.


Hand dyed (by me) rayon ribbon floss.


This section of the sampler is worked on tea towel linen which is not quite an even weave.


Procion cold water dyes


All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.

The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards  (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.


This section of the sampler is dated 1996 – Jan 1998
