QH101W 'Waterfall' sashiko panel INDIGO
This stunning large sashiko panel from QH Textiles, 'Waterfall', would make a lovely wall hanging or table runner. Some of the circular bubbles are filled with traditional geometric sashiko patterns and others with flowers or leaves, including plum blossoms, gingko leaves and cherry blossoms.
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 stitched in traditional white or cream thread, perhaps varying thread thickness and doubled or single threads. It would also look great with different shades of blues, or perhaps going quite multicoloured, with pink cherry blossoms, golden gingko leaves and deep pink plum blossoms. Whichever option you choose, there is a lot of stitching interest in this panel!
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'.
