Sampler fragment with bands, triangles, and hexagons

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A sampler with bands, triangles, and hexagons, several of them containing flowers, and one with a continuous vine made up from S-shapes.

    The sampler not only records several patterns, but also different stitches. The bands are stitched in close counted herringbone, the triangles in counted straight stitch worked into a honeycomb pattern, and there are patches of slanted counted stitch. Most of it is of good quality, but the stitching with undyed flax thread is very crudely done.
