Hand Embroidery

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.
