Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the simple running stitches to create a patterned background. The geomtric patterns include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern. The Japanese word sashiko means little stabs or running stitches and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.
Nowadays, sashiko is used for surface embellishment and decorative purposes. It has become an art form that is very popular with quilters.
