Boro and Sashiko


These first few are pieces the teacher, Becky from Shibori Dragon brought to class this week.

I love everything about this vintage Boro bag!
Here is her sashiko sampler.

And here is the start of mine. The photo is completely washed out. The fabric is a lovely cotton linen blend.

  1. I love the stitching in the first picture. It's the way that it goes in all different directions and sometime curves. It opens up a lot of possibilities for stitching. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Boro and sashiko really peak my interest. I bought a sashiko kit from Shibori at a local quilt show. Wonder where it is 😉

  9. Sounds like you had a wonderful time at these classes. I think you'd love the book Quilting with Japanese Fabrics by Kitty Pippen. I just found a used copy on Amazon, and it looks fantastic.

  10. I took a Sashiko class 20 some years ago. I don't remember actually doing anything with what we practiced on. I do like the look and look forward to what you do with yours.

  12. I love the look of Sashiko and have been meaning to try it for some time now. I bought the needles but that is as far as I got so far. I think I need a book and some stencils to get started.
