Sashiko for Summer in Lancashire
I had a great workshop with Phoenix Quilters in Astley, near Leigh, Lancashire today, doing 'Sashiko for Summer'. Unfortunately, I totally forgot to take any photos! I've asked the group to send me some pics of their finished pieces so, for now, here are two photos of the workshop samples. We used Indian shot cottons from Fabric Freedom for the sashiko fabrics, so there was a rainbow of different colours used, and quite a few quilters used the coloured or varigated sashiko threads too.
