Shaker Patchwork Tapestry Kit

A gorgeous design displaying decorative motifs and objects associated with the Shakers. Starting from the top row on the left, there is a stack of four of the traditional nesting boxes, then a little patchwork quilt & finally a star. The next row, from right to left, has a willow tree, a heart & a little bird: birds & hearts were probably the most popular motifs in all Shaker art forms. The bottom row, from left to right, shows a tulip which was the flower most commonly represented, the heart in hand design which symbolised marriage, love & friendship & finally a traditional house.

This kit has a small amount of optional surface stitching (backstitch) in stranded cotton on the boxes & patchwork quilt squares.

The tapestry measures 10” (25cm) square and is worked on 10 gauge canvas. It is available on either printed canvas or unprinted canvas suitable for a pillow or cushion.
