Japanese Style Runner

Ages ago my very talented sister-in-law, Helen (commonly known as Sis), gave me some machine made blocks which looked like sashiko. I liked them so much I thought I'd gussy them up in a table runner. This is the result. I love the dragonfly fabric with its pretty colours but didn't have quite enough for the four corner blocks. I did manage to find another dragonfly fabric though and used it in the small corner blocks.


  1. well done Myra, what an interesting piece!

  2. Lovely, the red with the indigo blue is so striking. Love dragonflies.

  3. what a lovely way to use the sashiko blocks. personally think the change in pattern for the corner blocks is a wonderful touch.
