Bristol Berries III

This final set of berries in the series focuses on several of the motifs typical of Bristol samplers, including the Bible, crosses, a crown, small animals, and more of the various patterns found in Maria Hancock’s sampler. Look for Bristol Berries I (the orphanage and the squirrel motif) and Bristol Berries II (alphabets and patterned bands) as well.
