I've become obsessed with Boro!

I've become obsessed with Boro!

a piece of boro stitched fabric in colors of blue and purple

I tried my hand at making a small Boro-inspired textile.  Boro textiles are from Japan, and consist of fabric that has been patched and repaired over time, with visible hand stitching.  I have so many small scraps of my hand dyed fabrics, I thought this would be a good way to use some of them.

I'm not sure what I will do with this piece, it is relatively small, about 8"x12".  Mostly I just keep running my fingers over it, because it has such a great texture!

Here is the back.  So much texture!  I'm working on a few other quilted pieces that will become bags.  If you would like to know when they hit my shop, just sign up for my email list here
