This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
Inspired once again, by the graphic appeal of woven antique coverlets from the beginning of the 1800’s, meet my newest design!
I chose the name “Summertime Coverlet” not just because of the nature of the motifs, which remind me of sunny days, but also because in my imagination, most middle and upper class households back in the day had heavy quilts in the winter time, but reserved their lighter coverlets for summer use. I don’t know if this is actually how it worked, but if I was a weaver and designing a light summer cover for my own bed, I would fill it with frolicking animals and flower bouquets.
Stitch count: 165 x 310. Stitched with one thread over two on R&R Reproductions’ 35ct. Old Mill Java.
Using thread from The Gentle Art: 7055 Uniform Blue (4 skeins).
Frame by Valley House Primitives.
Full alphabet and number set included so that you can customize it with your own initials and date.
All of my patterns come with a fully detailed & professional thread chart, color photograph, & my recommendations for floss and fabric. It will arrive in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
