The sampler on which this book is based is a unique sampler containing "four hundred individual pieces, incorporating almost a thousand design motifs, sewn into a continuous colorful strip twenty inches wide by forty-one feet long." The book includes the history of the sampler, discovered in England in 1967 by Lady Simpson, and charts done by Sydell C. Byer and Marion F. Scoular. Thirty-eight selected designs were charted for this publication.
