A splendid sashiko sampler

Here is Ray McLaughlin's sashiko sampler, which she has recently completed after coming to my sashiko course at Kaleidoscope. She has made a beautiful arrangement of the sashiko blocks and complemented them with some patchwork blocks from 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match', using one of my cotton yukata fabrics for the kimono blocks.  Using a cream print for the sashing and border gives a great contrast to the dark blue sashiko fabric too.  She says we can include this quilt in the 'Sashiko from Scotland' exhibit that will be touring the Grosvenor Shows Spring Quilt Festivals in 2017, so you may have a chance to see it in real life.  Well done!
