This delightful sampler was quilted with Sew Fine threads: brown and cream. I used the cream on the back and changed back and forth between the two colors for the light and dark areas on the top. The batting is 100% Cotton-Warm and Natural. Backing fabric is unbleached muslin. After it is washed, it will crinkle up and look just like it came out of Grandma's closet!

I did a feather meander to fill up the wide brown border and I think it looks like it came from another era.

It was a little tricky getting the tension just right so I could use the brown thread on top in the darker areas and not have it show on the backing. It turned out pretty well.
