This pattern was inspired by the beautiful collection of antique samplers in the collection of the York Museum’s Trust. In their archives I discovered many Quaker samplers, all in unfinished states, and resembling those found at Ackworth Quaker school. I used these unfinished samplers and several alphabet samplers as a creative springboard to compose this sampler.
This Quaker sampler measures 235 crosses in height, and 204 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen, it would approximately measure 14 3/4” by 12 3/4” (36.5 by 32.5cm).
