Back to Blue. Even though this is basically one color, I was trying to create interest and movement with the stripes and kasuri. Added a few sections of sashikostitches in chartreuse. To think: when I started my business in 1989 and was one of the first to import sashiko thread from Japan (because it didn’t sell here in the USA!), the only sashikothread that was available was white and off-white, in thick or thin. Now there are a gazillion colors and choices. Sashikois one of the biggest “gifts” we have received from the Japanese quilt world.
