Name: Floral Traditions
Size: The finished quilt measures 73¼″ x 55½″ —it may be enlarged by adding main fabric.
Process: This quilt makes use of three pre-stencilled sashiko panels: two panels of traditional Japanese designs and one panel of floral designs, which are combined with a few gorgeous Japanese fabrics to give it a little lift.
I wanted to create a quilt that would appeal to quilters who love sashiko but have never tried it, hence my decision to incorporate pre-printed (aka pre-stencilled) sashiko panels. I think you’ll find this quilt an easy-going and enjoyable one to make, certainly easy to stitch.
Commencement Date: The first mail-out will be September 15th.
