Brenda:What/Who is Sashiko?
Hi MarthaSashiko is a type of Japanese quilting and/or embroidery. It's a traditional craft that is typically done on indigo-dyed cotton fabric with white threads. (It's done in white with indigo thread too, but unorthodox colors are allowed if you're not a 'Sashiko purist!') Here's a link that gives some traditonal examples and more history:www.bettegant.com/sashiko.html. I love the classic Sashiko designs and they have inspired me to come up with my own for this quilt. (plus, I just like to stitch... it's very calming.)
yes, it looks like fun - and the indigo blue and white are so graphically appealing!
