sashiko furoshiki


I enjoy working on a bit of sashiko in the evenings, or on the go.  This was a project Kaela had started in Japan (pattern and materials from Blue and White), and I came across it the other day and finished it.


It's just a simple whatnot, in the style of a furoshiki.


 I backed it with a nice piece of tenugui, and quilted it very simply.  Bound it with cheddar.  Voila!

  1. Now that it is finished, do you get to keep it? I don't think it is going to be used as a furoshiki.

    1. Cecile - thank you! Yes, in this case, I did use batting - an extra piece of Quilters Dream cotton batting.

  3. what a pretty piece. the backing fabric is lovely and a good light compliment to the front. I've never tried this. maybe one day.

  4. Beautiful! I enjoy doing the odd Sashiko piece--making a quilt right now with sashiko blocks alternating with simple pieced blocks using Japanese fabrics....
