Join us for the Shine On Sampler Stitch Along!

We loved sewing up the Shine On Sampler quilt with you, and now we are excited to present its adorable companion, the Shine On Sampler Cross Stitch Pattern! This pattern is a bonus feature in The Bonnie & Camille Quilt Bee Book by It’s Sew Emma. This precious cross stitch pattern along with the other patterns in the book presents the celebrated mother-daughter team’s personal stories of how quilting has shaped their pasts and presents while influencing future generations! Join us next month for the Shine On Sampler Stitch Along!

Kimberly will be stitching a section each week for sixteen weeks from March 10 to June 23, 2021. She’ll be stitching with the Shine On Sampler Cosmo Thread Pack on Antique White 18 Count Aida 18″ x 25″ Cross Stitch Cloth. Shine On is also available as the Shine On fabric collection!

The Bonnie & Camille Quilt Bee Book features 12 amazing projects, including the unforgettable Shine On Sampler Quilt, nine coordinating quilts, a pillow and one gift-worthy thread catcher. It also contains this bonus cross stitch companion of the sampler quilt!

  1. Hi,

    Looking forward to this SAL. Is it possible to print off the picture of the sampler, with each week’s section of the design indicated. I see the picture, but could not find a link to print it out. Thanks so much.

          1. Hi Lynn! It depends on the fabric that you decide to use! If you use 14 count Aida, the finished size will be 11” x 13.5”, with the suggested fabric size of 17” x 20”. If you used 25 count Lugana, the finished size will be 12.25” x 15.25”, with the suggested fabric size of 18” x 21”. If you use 28 count Linen, the finished size will be 11” x 13.5”, with the suggested fabric size of 17” x 20”. I hope this helps! 😊

  2. Will the Cross stitch pattern be available as a separate chart at some stage?

  3. Is there a way to purchase the cross stitch pattern without buying the quilt book for those not into quilting?
