My Band Sampler – Third Panel Finished and Joined May 12th, 2008

The seam I showed on Friday night was the last seam on the 3rd panel of my band sampler…I have spent the last couple of nights putting the ribbon binding down the sides and joining it to Panel 2.

The join between the second and third panels of sampler

Detail of loops and beadsAs I explained when I joined the first 2 panels I am joining the panels so that they are securely joined in the long band that I want but can be unjoined, seperating them for display and rejoined for secure use and storage.

This join falls within the buttonhole section so I wanted to use buttonhole stitch for the join, I laced the first join through a row of buttonhole stitch on the end of each panel and I wanted something different for this join, after some thought I remembered buttonhole loops that can loop around beads which is just what I have used.

On the back for security I have done a row of obvious tacking stitches that can be easily removed and replaced when seperating for display.

The first 3 panels of my Band SamplerAs you can see in the image of the 3 panels, this panel was somewhat longer than the first 2 panels.

Total Length is now 9 1/2 feet.

    Hi Annie,
    Just wanted to let you know yours is one of the first blogs I read every morning. Your samplers are turning out wonderful! I hope you have been gone because you are partying in your castle, and not because of illness or anything. Hope to see you soon!

    Annie, I really like how you used the buttons to attach the separate panels. And the choice of button is just lovely — reminds me of that Mardi Gras glass or Carnival Glass with the purplish-green-blue tints!
