May 17/19. In an effort to get caught up with 'behind the scenes' work, from May 24 to 28 I will be not be picking up emails. Orders made during that time will be mailed out May 29th. Thank you for your understanding :-) Susan
This is a lovely panel of ready to stitch sashiko designs. 8 - 8" x 8" blocks and a series of bonus motifs on soft Japanese tsumugi cotton fabric (looks a bit like shot cotton) in navy blue. The print washes away completely so keep it dry till the stitching is finished!
Recommended thread - 100 meter skein Olympus thread
This makes a nice set of blocks for a quilt. We have pre cut 4" x 4" mixed color tsumugi fabrics to combine with it, and some solid colors in tsumugi yardage as well. The navy momen fabrics also combine well with this fabric for weight and drape.
I always recommend pre-washing fabrics you are going to combine in a project so that if they have different rates of shrink, it is got out of them before they are stitched together. BUT don't wash this until AFTER stitched! Ans I doubt you need to prewash very small pieces like the 4" squares.
