Colorful Stitches

DropCloth Sampler-Drawing Stitches up close

This sampler was a joy to stitch.  The variety of stitches, patterns and my stash of threads kept me motivated.  I stitched with 6 ply floss, perle cotton #5 and #8, and wool threads which gives a lovely texture to the piece.

I finished this piece like a quilt with a thin layer of batting, cotton backing and binding.  It makes me smile every time I walk by it.

The pattern, Drawing Stitches is from Rebecca Ringquist at Drop Cloth Samplers.

    Love it! I’ve been wanting to do one of those samplers of hers for a long time. Would be a great traveling craft. Thanks.
