'Cherry Tree in Spring' sashiko panel INDIGO


This gorgeous indigo blue sashiko panel is pre-printed with the exact stitch lengths, so it is suitable for all levels of sashiko stitch experience.  The design is a view of a Japanese cherry tree and falling petals, with the asanoha (hemp leaf) pattern in the corners. It is printed across four rectangular panels, which could be separated and mounted as a screen, or made into a traditional noren (Japanese door curtain). It also works perfectly as a wall hanging or quilt centre. Back it or border it with another fabric of your choice.


Total panel size is 42in (110cm) wide x 33in (84cm) wide approx, printed across the full width of the fabric.

Suggested threads - combine various colours from the 20m medium sashiko thread range, or go for fewer colours in the 100m medium or 370m (4ply) fine sashiko thread ranges, using all these either singly or doubled for a bolder effect. 80m (3ply) fine sashiko thread could also be used doubled. Definitely a panel to explore many shades of pink sashiko thread! This panel has many creative options for coordination with your interior decor. The exact amount of thread used will vary according to whether you stitch with a single or doubled thread.

I suggest edging the raw edges with a machine zigzag or narrow overlock stitch to prevent fraying before you start.
