QH101A 'Autumn Sky' sashiko panel INDIGO
This stunning large sashiko panel from QH Textiles, 'Autumn Sky', would make a lovely wall hanging or table runner. Dragonflies flit about above water swirls and among chrysanthemums, while the corner fans give way to maru shippo (round seven treasures) and nowaki (grasses) sashiko designs.
Total panel size is 43in (110cm) high x 18in (45cm) wide approx, printed across the full width of the fabric width.
Hand printed in Japan
Stitching suggestions for the panel -
This design would look lovely whether stitched in traditional white or cream thread, or in colours, accenting the dragonflies with shaded blue/green sashiko thread, adding golden yellows for the chrysanthemums and blues for the geometric designs.
I suggest edging the raw edges with a machine zigzag or narrow overlock stitch to prevent fraying before you start.
The indigo is the super dark 'kon iro' shade, similar to the colour of Yuza Sashiko Guild's fabric, which may look black in some lighting. It isn't a natural indigo, so it won't come off on your hands or run. It is the same colour as the other larger QH panels, like 'Seasons Greetings' and 'Maiko Bloom'.
