brick red geometric sashiko panel
Olympus have brought out a Limited Edition of my panels, printed on 'Autumn colours' Kofu Tsumugi. This listing is for the brick red colourway in traditional geometric designs, complimented with individual floral motifs. It is a limited edition and there are no plans to repeat the print run. A kamon crest panel is also available in the same colourway and I have the plain version of this kofu tsumugi fabric in stock as well. The other two colourways are mustard yellow and russet. If you would like one of these, don't wait - they are not repeatable!
A selection of ready to stitch traditional geometric sashiko patterns with smaller floral motifs adapted from my book 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match', hand printed by Olympus in Japan on their beautiful Kofu Tsumugi 100% cotton (coloured warp, black weft, with tiny slubs). Also available in indigo blue, deep red, dark green, ink black, grey (taupe) and light blue (slate blue) - click here to view. Each stitch is clearly marked, so they are easy to sew.
Each hand-printed pattern is washed away with water and disappears, leaving no mark on the work. Do not prewash your panel, or all your marks will disappear! The panel's squares are 9 1/2in (24cm) and 4 1/2in (11.5cm) approx. They can be cut up and used like quilt blocks or stitched as a whole panel (it looks good if the cutting lines are left unsewn). The possibilities are endless!
There is a kamon crest panel that complements this one, in the same size and colours.
Size - Approximately 108 cm selvedge to selvedge (print width: 96 cm) x 60cm wide.
NB - Colours will not run.
Thread suggestions - suitable for any medium or fine sashiko thread. One panel uses approx. 100m sashiko thread used singly, more if doubled or in a combination of doubled and single threads. The Olympus 100m sashiko thread, available in 14 colours, is ideal.
Needle - Olympus sashiko needles in packs of two or four.
