My Fabrics in a Sweet Sampler

Richmond Spool,  30" x 36"
Pattern and kit designed 
by Mickey Zimmer for Sweetwater Cotton Shoppe

While lurking through some Etsy shops I found this wall hanging made from my Richmond Reds
repro fabric line from Moda. The sweet girls from the Sweetwater Cotton Shoppe in Minnesota are selling both the pattern and a kit.

The sampler in primitive style looks also to be a sampler of techniques.

Blocks: stars, houses, flying geese, and snowball blocks. Plus wool applique and embroidery. And isn't that a yo-yo in the spool? If you're a beginner and looking for a variety of challenges this might be the perfect project.

Wool embroidery and a cotton yo-yo

The kit includes: fabric for front and binding, wool, Edmar embroidery thread, and Richmond Spool pattern.
