The Sashiko Block of the Month Quilt is designed by Jane MacDonald as a throw/lap quilt. The finished size is approximately 130cm x 105cm however the quilt could quite easily be made larger if you decide to add more at the end of the program.
Jane has kept this quilt design quite simple to feature kamon patterns, as well as highlighting boro/slow stitching, appliqué and transferring designs. Jane decided to include sashiko stitch dragonflies on the border as a way of illustrating how to transfer sashiko designs. Jane shows that transferring designs is an important and easy skill to learn that can be used in future projects.
Included in this BOM are all the fabrics for the quilt top, instructions, chaco paper, sashiko thread, sashiko needles and thimble. Extra requirements to finish the quilt are quilting thread, binding, backing and wadding. Only fabrics and sashiko thread made in Japan are used to make this quilt, including pre-stencilled tsumugi cotton and woven stripes.
There are 8 blocks plus the border distributed in 5 mail outs. Costing is 20€ per month for France (totalling 180€) or 23€ per month (totalling 207€) for the rest of the Euro zone + UK) including postage.
