#QH107 'Seasons Greetings' Christmas sashiko panel RED
NB - This panel is currently out of stock but is on reorder. The manufacturer is reprinting the panels. Estimated date of arrival was late December 2020, but there were production and shipping delays due to COVID-19 and then the Christmas/New Year holidays - they are printed in Japan, but the designers' company QH Textiles is based in Australia. The panels started their journey to the UK by air freight on 20th January 2021 and should be here soon. If you want to reserve a panel, I am taking orders and will send them as soon as they arrive.
This stunning new large sashiko Christmas panel from QH Textiles will help your bring a unique touch to your Christmas decor this year! Printed in silver on a heavier weight cotton that's easy to stitch (similar to some of the Olympus kit fabrics), the tree has lots of detail with the pine 'needles' done as two parallel lines of sashiko stitch (stitch out from the branch and back in). The side panel has a great assortment of decorations to stitch too, which can be made up double sided in sashiko (when there will be 21 decorations) or backed with another fabric for twice that number, either stuffed with a little wadding for a 3D effect or made up flat. I'm going to decorate my tree with buttons so I can attach the decorations with loops of thread.
Total panel size is 30 3/4"(77cm) wide x 43/44" (110cm) high, printed across the width - tree panel section is 20 1/2in (52cm) wide.
Hand printed in Japan
Stitching suggestions for the panel -
There are so many possibilities for these panels. The red one lends itself to a Scandi Christmas style, with the tree and all the decorations stitched in white or cream, or go for a more traditional look with the tree stitched in green and colourful ornaments.
A striped cotton fabric would look great for a simple border, or 'frame' it with a Christmas print.
