Here is a quilt top from Lynn N. She enjoys hand embroidery and it looks great paired with pieced blocks made from Japanese fabrics. I like the mix of colors - so soothing.

I quilted a simple sashiko pattern from edge to edge, going through the embroidery. This keeps everything evenly quilted and flat. I matched the thread color to the background fabric, so it doesn't take away from the embroidery.
