Item details

This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.

Coverlets in both geometric and figured patterns were widely popular during the early to mid 1800s. Some coverlets include trademarks.  One of the most well-known is a lion used in the 1830’s by New York weaver Harry Tyler.

I didn’t know any of this information when I first spotted that charming lion, all I knew was that I wanted to try to re-create it in the art medium I know best. Researching Tyler’s Lion and antique coverlets led me to the National Museum of the American Coverlet online.

Thus began a little experiment... if this design is well received, I will continue in partnership with the Museum, and release a series of coverlet-inspired patterns available only through their shop and mine.

Stitch Count: 160 x 110

Model stitched on Zweigart 40ct. New Castle Cream linen
(available from Norden Crafts)which was coffee stained prior to stitching.

Using floss from The Gentle Art: 7055 Uniform Blue

Frame by Broken Wheel Woodworks.

This pattern available exclusively from Heartstring Samplery and the National Museum of the American Coverlet.

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.
