|Christening Blanket, brocaded silk, Spitalfields, London, 1725-30|
For my stitched sampler, I have picked out the red, green and blue colours of this image.
The materials used are a piece of card, damask fabric, DMC Pearl No 8 thread and sheer organza.
As the image is busy in detail, my stitch sampler has been worked with a minimalistic approach.
Six Bullion knots, Twelve french knots, and a line of running stitch to hold the damask and organza together.
