Sashiko Cross refers to a repetitious background design (called a "diaper" pattern) utilized by artists and craftsmen in pottery, textiles, lacquer, metalwork, and porcelain. The pattern is formed by connecting "swastikas" and is often used as a sashiko quilting design. The swastika is considered an auspicious symbol and represents "strength."

Intermediate to Advanced 
$12.00

 Qty:  

 

The lotus grows in still, shallow bodies of fresh water where its sturdy root anchors in the mud, while its broad leaves float on the watery surface and its pure white blossoms point towards the sky. Just as the lotus, with root in the mud, rises steadily upward to put forth a pure white bloom in the sun, any person can rise above their supposed station in life (no matter how low) to attain a higher goal. For this reason, the lotus is associated with success and the attainment of goals. A lotus quilt is a wish for success, harmony, love, and prosperity.

Stylized flowers with four or five petals were of Chinese origin and known in Japan as karahana ("kara" meaning Chinese; and "hana" meaning flower). Karahana remain popular in Japanese design and are often enclosed in diamonds, hexagons, or vertical bars and seething. The quilt shown is made in the Chinese style - symmetrical, primary colors, and densely patterned. The karahana can be appliquéd by hand or machine. Included are instructions for a queen-sized quilt.
     
Cherry Blossom cherry blossom

Lap and Queen
# 101-110

In early spring when the cherry trees bloom, groups gather for organized social outings called "cherry-viewing" parties. Because of the fragile nature of the blossom and the brief blooming time, cherry blossoms came to symbolize the transience of life and thus a popular subject for poetry. The most beloved of flowers to the Japanese people, our simple Cherry Blossom quilt is an easy appliqué (by hand or machine). Included are instructions for a queen-sized quilt.

Twin and Queen
# 102-50

 
$12.00

 Qty:  

 

Positive and negative forces act together in order to create energy. Yin and Yang represent these two forces. These forces are interdependent of one another and in constant movement, each attempting to gain dominance. When one achieves dominance, an imbalance causes the dominant influence to subside and the other influence to rise. You could think of it as a wave that ebbs and flows; or the action of breathing in and out. Yin and Yang represent the natural flow of energy – an assertive moving outward (yang) and the receptive moving inwards (yin). Yin and Yang are represented in the dualities or opposites that we see in our world: birth/death, high/low, etc. united together yin and yang are harmony – the TAO of Chinese philosophy.
