For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 128

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 128

This band of is created by working a line of  herringbone stitch and tying it with detached chain


Perle thread #8 for the herringbone and a  hand dyed mercerised cotton for the detached chain stitch.


This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen


Procion cold water dyes for the cotton thread


The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and each section is stitched together in one long band to create a band sampler sampler which 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.


I started this section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early  2005.

  1. Thank you so very much for the tutorial of finishing the back of your CQ. I am in the process of finishing one that I have been working on , and off, for about 12 years! Life has interrupted many times!
    My borders are going to be “dripping” with antique lace and crocheted vintage pieces so I don’t plan to bind the edge, but rather hand finish the edge to the false back.I will try to send you a pix of it when it is finished…hoping by March, 2016, to have it in the Dallas quilt show.there are pictures on silk of 7 generations of women in my family and many found objects from their lives!
