Dragons of Sumatra
This is an original sampler in which I collected up motifs from antique Indonesian textiles that I ran across while researching tampan ship cloths for my Big Red Ship of Life sampler. The antique sources were often worn, incomplete, and containing obvious errors. I exercised my prerogative to fix those errors and omissions, as this is not intended as a reproduction. It's my theory that the cloths were used to record weaving patterns rather than used as decorative pieces in their own rights. I've included a page in chart pack that captures some of my observations and thoughts about these cloths.
This sampler is 301W x 216H. It was stitched with Gloriana Silk Thread in Poinsettia. These silks are 12-ply, and it required 25 yards using a single ply on 36 count over 2. The fabric used was 36 count (18 stitches per inch) Ancient linen by Picture This Plus. The total number of stitches is 29111. Digital chart is Pattern Keeper friendly.
