The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and all the 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 I have another 12 sections to add. Since I constantly have it to hand picking the latest section up when in the mood it will get longer. I will stop when I get bored with playing with it!
This section of the sampler was worked in November 2007.
