Pastoral Sampler - Complete Set

Finished quilt size: 64" x 67 1/8"

The Pastoral Sampler quilt is designed in the style of antique American samplers from the 1800’s. There are 9 separate patterns (or months) to complete the quilt. Several techniques are used in the quilt construction. Complete machine and traditional hand appliqué directions, along with helpful sewing techniques are given in the GENERAL DIRECTIONS section in Month #1. The saw tooth border and Log Cabin blocks use Foundation Paper Piecing. Two narrow design rows use strip piecing techniques. Embroidery stitches used for the quilt are chain stitch, backstitch, French knot, and Satin stitch.

The Alphabet Lawn is constructed using YLI Wash-A-Way paper, printed with a lined grid, and sewn in the style of postage stamp quilts. A quick new postage stamp sewing method is given, so that fabric blocks remain soft and pliable to sew through, after rinsing dissolves the entire paper pattern.

FABRIC AND NOTION NOTES
A complete fabric requirement list is included inside the first pattern, for all 9 months. Please open to find this section, this list also includes a complete embroidery floss section and other items needed to complete the quilt.

Two FABRIC CUTTING DIAGRAMS are included, for the main cream background fabric and the dark green alphabet lawn fabric.

If you are following the quilt model fabric colors closely, use the enclosed sheet as a color guide for fabric and embroidery floss. If your selected color scheme varies from the model, please use the fabric list as a guide for yardage and choose floss that complements your fabrics. Pick floss colors that stand out on selected fabrics.

Our Quilted Village has great folkart appeal, just as the quaint small town squares found on a drive through the countryside. Join us in building your own quilted village around a center patchwork "green". Measuring 57" x 60", four main background fabrics are used for the blocks. We have added embellishments to the quilt by using silk ribbon embroidery for tree leaves, fruit, grapes & berries, flowers & birds. Directions include a choice of stitching methods & patterns. The village may be appliqued or paper foundation pieced. The basic general directions and center "green" pattern instructions are included with the first block, Schoolhouse, and these are essential to have on hand. All 12 patterns are included with the complete set.
