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!
