This panel is another lovely sashiko panel design by Hiroi Mogi of HM Textiles. The panel measures 60cm x 110 cm and is printed on an unusual charcoal coloured sashiko fabric which would look fabuklous stitched in white, ecru or coloured sashiko thread. The white stitch guide marks will dissapear when you rinse the completed work in tepid water.
It is hard to know the kind of fabric that a sashiko panel is printed on with out being able to feel it. So for your information the weight of this 100% cotton fabric could be compared to the weight of a ‘cotton drill’. It is heavier than a normal quilting cotton so it will not gather up as you make your stitches.
