This is my first attempt at Sashiko, the pattern was printed on the fabric, so seemed pretty easy. I needed to make a birthday gift for a secret sister and this is it. I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope she will like it. My DH likes turtles, so keeping it secret from him was a bigger challenge. Now I need to start another one for him and keep it a secret again.....whew can I do it again???
Here is the fabric I put on the back, I'm so proud of the zipper. I hadn't done a zipper with a flap for so many years.
Now back to regular quilting, I have a Xmas quilt to add borders.
