Patchwork sampler (by Jan Houtman)

My Patchwork sampler is finished. It was a joy to stitch. It is done on 22ct Zweigart Aida one over one using mostly leftover floss from the Dimensions kits and some DMC.
Started 8 June 2016, finished 29 November 2016.
A rare case when the back looks almost as nice as the front.

Below is my page by page progress report.

  1. Oh, this is so fabulous! IMPECCABLE stitching, great colors and so much patience doing it one on one over 22. The backwork just amazes me how neat it is.

  2. Simply awesome! I love the clean, simple lines! It is beautiful. Congrats on finishing such a huge project.

    Will you frame it?

    1. I have a big problem with framing. No place on the walls. Almost everything is in a box, unless I can turn it into a cushion top :)

    2. It would make a lovely cushion top.

  3. Oh, good golly!!! That is just the MOST gorgeous thing ever. And that back.....I am in awe.
