Gleam – a modern pojagi window hanging

pojagi window hanging with title "gleam"

This window hanging looks like stained glass, but it’s actually fabric! It’s made with batiks stitched together with the modern pojagi style seam technique.

The pattern for this piece is available in my shop or at Etsy. It includes clear directions for all the techniques involved in making this window hanging with lots of diagrams and pictures.

There is no precision cutting or piecing involved, but a simple “loop and snip” technique is used to make the pieces. It doesn’t require any special ruler or equipment, just basic quilting tools like a sewing machine and iron.

The sample piece uses red, yellow and blue as the three colours, but you can use up to five different colours or only one if you prefer.

Even if you’ve never tried modern pojagi before, this is a great project. Try it today!
