Sashiko, the traditional Japanese technique of needlework quilting, uses simple running stitch to create beautifully decorative patterns ideal for patchwork, quilting and embroidery. Sashiko (pronounced shash-ko) means 'stab stitch' and refers to the small running stitch that is worked to build up distinctive decorative patterns, of which there are hundreds. The book begins by exploring the origins of the technique to strengthen clothes and to make them warmer. Getting Started describes everything you need to begin stitching, including selecting suitable fabrics and threads, marking out patterns on the fabric, as well as the stitching technique itself. Ten project chapters show how easy it is to use sashiko patterns to make beautiful items for the home. The sashiko patterns are described in step-by-step detail in the pattern library, showing you exactly how to achieve each individual pattern with ease. Finally a gallery of work by contemporary Japanese textile artists provides extra inspiration.

Genre: Crafts & Hobbies

Author Joy-Lily helps readers to put the fun back into quilting. Inside, readers will experience a fresh approach to quilting with two simplified, carefree methods:"sew & flip" and "stack, slice & swap," where skills like matching seams and measuring are not important. At the end of construction, each piece is trimmed to a uniform size to facilitate mixing and matching into many quilted projects. While matching seams and other traditional quilting skills are unimportant for success with these instructions, the reader will still learn basic quilting techniques, including strip piecing, curved piecing, foundation piecing, sewing on a bias, piece swapping and more, as they work through the blocks. A getting started section explains which rules are necessary and which are optional.
