Unfolding Kiku Temari Pattern
Unfolding Kiku by Barbara B. Suess
Unfolding Kiku is a temari I designed for Level 3 certification with the Japan Temari Association located in Tokyo. The bright white threads of the fans and kiku really shine against the ball’s tan background. The temari is marked in a Combination 10 division and unusual kite shapes are combined to define the area for filling with kiku herringbone stitching. This temari is for advanced stitchers who are ready for a fun challenge in placing the design correctly on the division and executing kiku herringbone and straight stitches in a unique way.
