March 16/19. The move is over, the stock room almost settled, and we love our new home in Maple Ridge BC! And yes! We will be at the Creative Festival show, Abbotsford March 22/23 :-D Happy sewing, 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 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! And I doubt you need to prewash very small pieces like the 4" squares.
