Today's Quilter sashiko special supplement - sneak peek!
I've had a look at the pdf files for the sashiko supplement, due out on August 18th, and it is looking really good. There are three complete projects - Koi scroll, Marumon (framed below) and Ranru.
All three projects were featured in 'Japanese Sashiko Inspirations', which is currently out of print, so it's a good chance to get your hands on these patterns. Ranru is also in 'Simple Sashiko', but not the other two - they are a bit more complicated!
The history section from '...Inspirations' is included...
Plus a great sashiko gallery selected from both 'The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook' and '...Inspirations', including sashiko works by Yuza Sashiko Guild members as well as me.
As I mentioned in my previous post, Today's Quilter will have the large sashiko sampler from '...Ultimate...' displayed on their stand at Festival of Quilts at the NEC, Birmingham. If you take out a subscription during the show, you'll get the sashiko special to take home with you too, in advance of it arriving in the shops.
