Band 152 is also section 10. It is a little sampler that is a section in its own right. This area was an experiment with plastic shirt buttons as I was interested in creating patterns with them. These are mens shirt buttons arranged to shade.
People always respond to this little area with surprise. It’s fun to watch their faces as the sampler unrolls and they encounter these mens shirt buttons!
This section of my sampler is worked on dress linen.
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.
I worked this section in 2005.
