Shaker Wedding Sampler

A stunning wedding sampler inspired by one of the most beautiful quilts to survive & now housed in the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan, USA. The original quilt was made by or for Sarah Furman Warner about 1800 and depicts a busy day in the life of Greenfield Hill, Connecticut, a small New England village.

In my adaptation of the original design, I have focused on the church & the happy couple & retained the beautiful border of scrolling foliage & colourful flowers spilling from central vases. An alphabet is included in the kit for you to personalise the design.

The tapestry measures 11” x 11” (30cm x 29cm) and is worked on 12 gauge canvas. It is available on either printed canvas or unprinted canvas suitable for a pillow or cushion.
