Format: Paperback
Sharon Pederson's Sensational Sashiko: Japanese Applique And Quilting By Machine uses 12 sample projects to explore two traditions - sashiko and Japanese family crests. Here are not just patterns and ideas but the author's own new techniques for making perfectly spaced stitches suitable for quick sashiko-style quilts. Applique and quilting blend with machine stitches for quick and polished results, while projects address problems such as binding and how to solve them with reversible binding, and couching heavyweight threads.

Wow! Wow! Wow! That is my first impression of this DVD about Japanese Sashiko. This is a quilting technique that I had heard about but knew nothing about. Ms. Pederson takes you through the process of creating a Sashiko quilt block in an easy to follow step by step method. The DVD is wonderfully filmed and gets in CLOSE so you can actually SEE what the author is talking about.

Ms. Pederson talks about the history of Sashiko and shows other books on the subject that can be used to create the quilt blocks. She tells us that it is usually done by hand but shows us the technique needed to create it by machine.

The DVD shows the chapters so you can review any one step you need to without going through the whole thing again. It also talks about Quilt as you Go method of creating a quilt which is an added benefit in my opinion.

She also shows her technique for doing invisible machine appliqué. I have done machine appliqué but can't wait to try the technique shown in the DVD. There are special features which include a Trunk Show, EQ^ Lesson, EQ^ Virtual Trunk Show and Outtakes. The outtakes had me laughing hysterically. It was a side of Ms. Pederson that didn't show in the DVD as she was more relaxed in the outtakes. I felt she was a bit too formal in the actual DVD but this could have been her first time filming and being filmed is not an easy thing.

My only disappointment was that I did not have her book while I watched the DVD. It would have been very nice to highlight those things that I wanted to go back over again or a special part that I wanted to remember such as the sashing sizes. But I can listen again to the DVD so I will be able to get the information I want.

If you like learning "in person" or are better at visual demonstrations, then DVD presentations like "Sensational Sashiko" are just the think to find in your Stocking on Christmas morning.
