Summary

Sashiko, a quick and easy form of Japanese quilting inspired by nature, has become increasingly popular with needleworkers. This practical guide explores sashiko's distinctive geometric patterns, and introduces its materials, equipment, and basic techniques. Thirty striking designs, each accompanied by a full drawing, range from the Ougi (Fan) and Ume (plum blossom) to Shippu (seven treasures) and Sayagata (Buddhist symbols). Ten projects include aprons, placemats, cushions, and bags.
