Indianapolis Museum of Art - Sampler Collection On-Line

Wonderful Indianapolis Museum of Art now has their collection of samplers on-line for you to visit. Gems amongst them are this 17th century sampler stitched by Mary Wilson in 1695 which with its distinctive interlinear text is reminiscent of Quaker samplers of this period.
Most of the samplers also have detail images which allow you to enjoy a close-up viewing.
There is also this Dutch darning pattern beauty of 1827.
And here we can zoom into some of that lovely detail. To visit the Indianapolis Museum of Art On-Line Sampler Collection click here.
