Our new Saturday morning Breakfast Club started today.
We are doing Sue Spargo's Instastitch with a Japanese twist.
I am making mine all from my collection of old indigo fabrics.
These are pieces I have collected mostly from flea markets in Japan.
Each piece has had a previous life as part of a futon cover (bed cover) or
a kimono or sometimes maybe both. These charm of these fabrics is their
recycled nature and even patching.
These are the first seven of twelve blocks that Sue is designing.
Most will get more stitching added. Please ignore the white circles in the top left
corners - they stickers with my block numbers on.
The last block has no stitching on yet as I only just finished piecing
it this afternoon.
