Designed by Rebecca Ringquist, a US based Embroiderer, this Color Wheel Sampler has been designed with twelve different stitches- one for each segment of the wheel. Pick out twelve co-ordinating colors and you'll be on your way. Your finished sampler will serve as a great reference for future projects. Printed Sampler is approximately 7" x 9".
All but one of these stitches are covered in Rebecca's Creativebug workshop.....
Please note: This is a printed embroidery sampler; it arrives ready to hoop and stitch yourself. Also please note that the orange drip in this design is intentional- it comes on every single copy. Thanks!
The sampler arrives preprinted on cotton quilting fabric, ready to stitch and includes basic instructions. You provide your own threads, needles, and hoop.
What size is it?
The Color Wheel measures approximately 8" x 7"

How should I back my sampler?
For best results, I recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest,
most even stitches this way. Check out my how to for this step on creativebug or IGTV (@dropcloth)
What size hoops should I use? I like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.
