A Pennsylvania German Sampler Finish

Jill Bobbin has contributed this photo of her Pennsylvania German Sampler.    Members will recall this project from our October 2010 class by Pamela Darney.  Pam encouraged us to select colors that were meaningful to us, and Jill took this to heart.  

Jill personalized her sampler to recognize her parents 50th wedding anniversary:

    Janet from IL

    Laurence from NJ

    Married August 19, 1961

The only letters in the alphabet with black blocks are T, K and C for Tyler, Kiera, and Connor.

She also used the colors of her stitched name to represent the “path” of her life.  For instance, the first “B” is stitched in green and gold, the colors of The College of William and Mary, which is Jill’s alma mater.  

Great work Jill!  Thanks for sharing your finished piece.  We look forward to seeing more versions of this design.
