Click on the zoom image button under 'add to cart' to see the complete panel.
Four different designs are printed on each panel.
Each design is 13" x 9" (33cm x 23cm) plus plenty of room for seam allowances.
These panels are solid black, I've just had a bit of light flare from the camera but they do show clearing the four different patterns.
Available in four moda solid colours - black
, rust and earth. All these colours match the New Zealand kiwiana fabrics beautifully. This photo of projects and panels is very true to the correct colours.
You may decide to leave the panel as one piece or cut it up into two or four different sized panels.
Using traditional Japanese sashiko thread
and a sashiko needle
, the stitch is a simple running stitch that you stitch over the printed lines. When you have completed the continuous line stitching you won't see the dashed printed lines (and neither will any one else, they will think you have spent hours stitching ever so carefully!)
Then decide what you would like to make with the panel - a quilt, cushion front, apron pocket, tote bag etc etc.
Lovely to have a touch of kiwiana in your home decor. These designs are loosely based on the Maori kowhaiwhai rafter patterns and are a further development from my koru templates.
Watch for more projects using both the sashiko - kiwi style panels
and the koru templates
Instructions are included with every panel sold.
You only need one skein of the sashiko thread
to complete one panel. If using dark thread like the red or the navy blue then I suggest you use a double thread in which case you will need to purchase two skeins.
100% Moda solids quality cotton. Beautiful fabric to stitch through.
