Honu Sea Turtle & Wave by Sylvia Pippen Designs

Learn the art of sashiko and appliqué!

Turtles are symbols of good luck and long life in many cultures.  In Hawaii they are considered family protectors and the embodiment of ancestors called ‘aumakua.  The wave pattern is a traditional Japanese Kamon design.  The waves are easily machine appliquéd or can be hand appliquéd.  Hand sashiko outlines the waves.

Pattern includes design transfer instructions, selecting fabrics, appliqué, and sashiko and finishing techniques.

Skill Level: Beginning to intermediate


Take the guesswork out of choosing fabrics with a kit!
Includes Kona background, Hoffman turtle batik for borders and binding, ocean blue batik for waves, and assorted batiks and other fabrics for the turtle, & Sashiko thread.  Batting and backing fabric are not included.

Fabrics are carefully chosen to match the original quilt on the pattern cover, but may vary slightly.
