Sashiko Sample Completed

Done and dusted – unless I decide to quilt it and make it into a dolly quilt.

Sashiko sample 4

Sashiko complete

I don’t have to quilt it but it would make a useful little mat to put under the fruit bowl. I managed to complete another sample too; hand-stitched reverse applique. I quite like the stepped appearance and it certainly highlights the centre. It would be a good way to mount any hand work and  this little piece of Botanique from Joel Dewsbury almost looks like embroidery.

I really must concentrate on the main assessment piece now – a wall hanging. Here are a few pages from my sketch book mostly worked from photos I took in Australia.

I made a printing block of a simple leaf shape and roughly painted it to print these

Next I will try it on fabric.

I have sketched a few possible designs but that is for another day, now it is time to link up to slow Sunday Stitching here

  1. Your Sashiko stitching looks wonderful, so even. I’ve never tried this technique but it looks lovely. The woodblock stamping looks very realistic. You have a steady hand. Happy stitching!
