sashiko all over :: finished

It's been 8 months in the making & it's finished - sashiko all over.  It's quite weighty which I like, there's a whole lot of sashiko thread in there.  Another quilt suitable for the couch, I think it could be my new favourite.

The binding is just the backing folded over and stitched down, where there are patches of calico on the binding, that's where the backing didn't quite reach around.  I didn't have a clear plan at the start but I'm so happy with how it looks now. 

On the weekend I had to start something new, it would seem I have to have quilt on the go at ALL times - even though it can remain idle for quite long periods.  I don't like the feeling of nothing 'in progress' hanging over the chair near my sewing area, it's a little empty.  The next one is for 'flip', he asked if he could have the next one - more to come...

  1. That looks so beautiful Lisa! Well done. And I agree...you need to have something to ponder and work on when you're a 9-to-5-er :)
