#QH108 'Seasons Greetings' Christmas sashiko panel INDIGO
They're here! Finally reprinted and back in stock.
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 very dark indigo blue (almost black!) would look beautiful in a very traditional sashiko colour combination, with the tree and all the decorations stitched in white or cream. It would also look stunning with the tree in grey or light blue, with different shades of blues and grey for the ornaments, or go for a more traditional look with the tree stitched in green and colourful decorations.
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.
A striped cotton fabric would look great for a simple border, or 'frame' it with a Christmas print.
