This sashiko panel was started at a Susan Briscoe short workshop at the Great Northern Quilt Festival, Harrogate in 2009. It's been languishing in the drawer now for two years. I came across a piece of dark blue batik whilst rummaging this morning and the two cried out for each other. I cut a 1" strip of cream fabric, folded it in half and ironed, then it was sewn round the edges of the panel as mock piping. Borders of batik applied finished it off.
Next step is some "tasteful" quilting and it will get a cream double fold binding. As it is one of my rare pieces of hand work it will become a wall hanging. That mock piping is so simple and really sets a piece off.
