Fair & Square Round 12 arrived

Take a look at these beautiful Squares from my Fair & Square partner Kim. They arrived yesterday and are maybe the most beautiful squares I've ever received. Well, I know I say that about every pair of squares I receive in this exchange group, but every single pair is beautiful and one of a kind. Kim stitched this little Deer Sampler for me on 32 ct. linen with 1 over 1. I also tried to stitch my squares on 1 over 1, but I realized that I could have never finished it in time. So I did the regular 2 over 2.

For Kim's Squares I picked a design from à mon ami pierre and rearranged the single motives to fit them into the right size.

Beautiful squares! I tried to stitch something over one for an exchange, but after a week I realised that there was no way I would get it done in time. I am still working on it a year later for myself, lol.

Daniela... I'm so glad you like them! You told me that you were kind of leaning towards New England Samplers... I had this pattern and thought it was perfect! Thank you again for my lovely Quaker squares! It was the best 1st exchange for me!
