Sashiko Fabric is Stitched

Finally done! Finished stitching the different pieces of fabric for the sasiko quilt I'm making. Each of the squares on the big piece of fabric took about an hour and a half or so to stitch, depending on the complexity of the pattern.

Sashiko embroidery is a type of Japanese embroidery. The stitching is simple - it's just a basic running or straight stitch. The fabric itself is a deep blue/navy.

The pattern for each of the squares was printed onto the fabric. After stitching, you scrub it off, revealing only the hundreds (maybe thousands if I'd count all the fabric) of stitches that were done.
