I gifted my mom this sashiko pillow a few years ago, so for her birthday last month, I made her this mini quilt featuring blocks of hand-stitched sashiko embroidery.
The fabric squares were actually from a coaster kit, but since coasters tend to be in abundance in our family, I decided to use the small squares to make a wall hanging instead.
I alternated the squares with a chambray, and backed the quilt with a navy and white Japanese print. Since the squares already featured so much stitching, I kept the quilting simple and stitched in the ditch. I bound the quilt with a topographical print from Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures line.
I really love how this mini quilt turned out, and thankfully, so did my mom!
P.S. There are still a few spots left in the embroidery class that I'm teaching at Gather in Cary, NC, tomorrow night, and I'd love to have you join if you're local and interested!

I used Rachel's Star Blossoms tutorialas my starting point, and decided to make each star monochromatic,...
Not long after posting about the mini color wheel quilt top I started for September's LMP+QG challenge (which I opted to create using only shades of purple), I managed to quilt it, bind it and mail it to one of my good friends (who loves the color purple) for her October birthday.
I opted to hand quilt the piece, using purple floss in the wedges and white floss in the inner and outer borders.
When Amanda Jean posted an in-progress shot of her gingham quilt back in 2010, I knew I had to make my own. Fast forward to last fall, to right before we moved into a new house, when I finally did. Using remnants from my stash (including scraps from our gray wedding day tablecloths), I made a mini version to hang above our bed.
I backed it with a cute Lizzy House print, hand quilted it using gray...
