Sashiko and kasuri block sampler

Cynthia Nanto, who blogs as Wabi-sabi Quilts, sent me a photo of her gorgeous version of the sashiko and kasuri sampler from 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match'.  She wrote -

I have really enjoyed your sashiko books as a supplement to the sashiko I learned while living in Japan 2011-2013.  I have been working on my sashiko sampler quilt from your Japanese Blocks to Mix and Match book for a year now, and finished it today.

She has included some other sashiko designs she learned at Blue and White in Azabu-juban and the gorgeous deep indigo cottons are the real thing, vintage fabrics, some from the Boroichi.  Including vintage indigo and katazome stencil dyed cloth gives the quilt real depth of colour.

There's more about the quilt here on her blog.  Love it!
