My design,  Hourglass Medallion with String Border, more to be added.

My scrappy runner with sawtooth border is in hand quilting process.

Samples of Sashiko stitches, for the 24 Days of Sashiko 2022 Challenge.



Quilt News from the valley! 

Temperatures have dropped and we've had a few frosts, leaves are falling fast.

I'm piecing my new improv Hourglass Medallion Quilt with String Borders, it's 16" x 16" so far. Have you tried piecing string borders or sawtooth borders for any projects lately?

And progress has been made on hand quilting my Scrappy Runner with Sawtooth Border, 18" x 36".  has a challenge currently in progress, 24 Days of Sashiko in 2022. I'm following along and enjoying the process. Christmas ornaments maybe?

That is the quilt news from the valley where I'm looking forward to the Holidays!

Hot cocoa anyone? I'll be by to visit.

Your work is as always so beautiful with all the colors you are so good at mixing.
I haven’t put on a striped or sawtooth border on a quilt for a long time. However I have recently SEEN some - at the quilt show in Yokohama. Some of the pieces were really tiny. Check my blog posts to see in detail.
We have had milder weather than usual but winter is on the way.
Enjoy you Sashiki stitching.

Such a cute Improv quilt and the string border is perfect. Lovely colours into the bargain.
