This area is part of section 38 on the For Love of Stitching band sampler. As I explained when I introduced this section the sampler was stitched after the Victorian fires. This band is adapted from a traditional blackwork pattern. Many people tragically lost their lives in these fires. I think the pattern speaks.
The For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide. It consists of different strips of fabric which are are stitched together to form one long strip. It currently measures 24.8 yards or 22.75 metres long and I have more bands to add.
