ABC and 123 ... the sampler quilt - my take on a beloved classic.
Modern day reproduction fabrics highlight my charming 11"x11" (28 cm) traditionally pieced and hand-quilted miniature sampler quilt.
I've pieced and sashed nine classic 2" quilt blocks using beautiful 1860's reproduction fabrics - onto six of those blocks I've stenciled: 'A B C' and '1 2 3', and the three remaining blocks are traditionally pieced quilt patterns.
Each of those six letter circles is embroidered with a blanket stitch onto 'plain' blocks using Danish Embroidery Thread.
I hand quilt the piece and then finish with a double (French) binding by hand to complete a charming historic look.
A nice squared-up piece, 'ABC 123' will lie flat and look lovely as a table topper.
If you prefer to have this as a wall piece, on the reverse side you'll find finishing corner hanger-triangles, made in a solid accent fabric.
A sweet reminder any time of the year, perfect at Valentine's Day or a birthday ... perfect for all those times words cannot express the love you feel.
