1831 QUAKER SAMPLAR

I really do not know much about the history
of this samplar. It resembles some of the
Westtown School samplars, the strong Quaker
influence is reflected in it subdued colors with
the halved geometric motifs.

The reproduction was stitched on a 35 count
hand-dyed linen with Eterna Silk threads with
a DMC and Anchor conversion. The stitch count
on this design is 124w X 168h
