This is a wonderful sashiko sampler panel combining traditional designs, family crest designs, hitomezashi designs, characters, images, and Noshi, a symbol for good fortune in new beginnings. Available in navy, black, red, and grey.
You could stitch the entire 100cm x110cm (39" x 43") and use it as a hanging or throw quilt, or the designer has given generous seam allowances and cutting lines for each block and section to allow you to easily cut it into blocks and panels to incorporate into smaller projects. Designed by Hitomi Fujita.
The fabric is a slightly textured (dobby) weave, colorfast washable 100% cotton. All markings will wash away after stitching, including any area you didn't feel like stitching :-). Please don't iron the fabric before you have washed it. Heat may make the printed markings permanent.
Breakdown of what is in the panel: 9 blocks 10" x 10", 12 blocks 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", 1 block 12" x 7", 1 block 10" x 23", 1 dragonfly block 10" x 15"
All this being said, this panel is worth stitching. I don't want to scare you away from it, just to let you know what you are getting yourself into :-)
