Shimacho quilt from Canada


Linda Stephens, who I met when she came to Scotland last year as part of the Celtic Quilt Tours group, sent me a photo of her Shimacho quilt from 'Japanese Quilt Inspirations'. She wrote -

This was a great project to work on and to use some Japanese fabrics.

I love the fabrics in this quilt too.  The cool, turquoise blues, the greys and reds give is a very Mid Century Modern/contemporary look, which really works.  Lovely choice of long arm pantograph pattern on it too - all over leaves (click the photo to see more detail).

The group did the Sashiko on Tartan class with me at the Black Watch Museum and we had a fun time together.  Hope to see you at Festival of Quilts Linda!

Love Linda's fabric choices.

I know our group loved the Sashiko class with you at the Black Watch Museum. There was a lot of stitching on the bus as we traveled throughout Scotland.

I was sorry the Scottish Quilt Championships were cancelled, but we look forward to being able to shop for fabulous Japanese fabrics with you at the vendor malls at both the Festival of Quilts (2018) and the Harrogate Quilt & Needlework Show (2019).

See you soon in Birmingham.
