Counted Cross Stitch Sampler - A Shaker Sampler

This A Shaker Sampler chart by Patricia Gaskin Designs is from the Shakers of Pleasant Hill, a village located in the blue grass region of central Kentucky. It pictures the East Family Dwelling House (constructed of brick in 1817-1819). The trees in the design were adapted from the "Tree of Life" quilt pattern. The quilt blocks pictured are "Jacob's Ladder" or "Rocky Road." The sampler was worked on 16 count white Aida, single matted and framed and hangs in the guest bedroom of our home.
