For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 172

Band description:

I hope this section of the sampler is not getting too boring for regular readers as this band is another variation on basic buttonhole stitch.

Fabric and Thread:

The sample is worked on Aida fabric using a hand dyed cotton thread which is about the same weight and thickness as perle 8


The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and all sections are 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 was finished in December 2005.

  1. I’m loving these buttonhole stitch variations – I’ve never seen them before, and now am thinking about using them for my needlepoint "coral reef" series – In the DMC Memory Thread, they look like coral, etc.
