My May 2021 One Monthly Goal was to do the sashiko stitching on the Two Cranes pre-printed Sashiko pattern. Last month I started stitching it with a variegated orange Perle thread but didn’t like how washed-out the lighter sections of the thread looked. I ordered some Wonderfil Eleganza in a several yellow and orange colors, and ended up using a color called Pencil. I still haven’t rinsed off the pre-printed marks in the pic below:
The design measures about 11.5” square. I will be giving it unfinished to my brother in July for his 75th birthday and will find out how he would like me to finish it. I could have it framed for him. I could made it the center of a lap quilt or it could be a mini wall hanging. It also would make a nice pillow. Stay tuned for an update in mid-July regarding what he decides 🙂

It turned out so nice! Will be fun to see how you finish it!
Thanks Wendy. I enjoyed stitching this project. Hey, I went down a rabbit hole yesterday on Pinterest and ended up at Quilt Improv Studio and was delighted to see your black/white with green improv project and some quotes from you about the project. Very fun!!!

Beautifully done; I look forward to hearing how your brother wants it finished.
It’s a beautiful block. Well done.
How nice your brother gets a choice! It is just beautiful.
Love your Sashiko!!!
Wonderful finish! Well, almost finish! He will cherish it. Reminds me I need to get another kit or mark my table runner and stitch it.
Very cool.. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.
Hi Mary! Ooh, I can hardly wait to hear what your brother would like. My first thought was of a pillow but you give excellent different options. It turned out so lovely. Congrats on the OMG finish. ~smile~ Roseanne
