A Scottish Sampler circa 1740
An historical design from the Scarlet Letter collection.
Scottish samplers are often easily identified by their colour palette: intense shades of red, green and pink, as well as by clusters or rows of initials of family members. This small sampler includes motifs usually seen on earlier samplers of the late seventeenth century, including the Ikat geometric designs and the large flower in the lower reserve. Stitches used are cross, eyelet, straight. and long arm cross.
On 35 count linen the finished sampler will measure approximately 8" x 8"
Kit contains fabric, cotton or silk thread, needle and instructions.
