December 2022 OMG Finished

My December 2022 One Monthly Goal was to finish five Sashiko coasters and one Sashiko small rectangular pillow from Sashiko squares stitched this past year for Christmas/birthday presents for my friend Kristen who was born on Christmas Day. I’ll start with the 10″ x 15″ pillow as it is my favorite of these small finishes. I bought the cats stencil on Etsy, but the shop I bought it from no longer has it in stock. I did find it in a different Etsy shop. I first used this stencil when I made an Orange Sashiko Kitties Coaster for my friend, Wendy, who loves the color orange. For the cats on Kristen’s pillow, I used Weeks Variegated Caribbean Size 8 thread. Here’s the front of the pillow that I quilted with Aurafil Jade 50 wt thread (4093):

In case anyone is curious about the turquoise snowflakes above the pillow, those are the bottom part of a Turquoise Christmas Tree panel I had quilted by Sew Shabby Quilting a couple years ago.

Here are the five finished Sashiko coasters:
