Sashaying in from Banora Point


 
 This colourful sashiko quilt from Trish at Banora Point, NSW is being quilted with the dragonflies e2e machine quilting pattern.  KoolKat Quilting chose a charcoal thread to blend with the background of the sashiko panels and this has minimal impact as the photos above demonstrate.  We also use this technique for applique, candle-wicking, red-work or any similar quilting where there are feature blocks.
