Circles in the Squares

Circles in the Squares
Circles in the Squares is now complete!  The last time you saw this the circles had been stitched down and shortly after that I added some detail hand embroidery work which gives some movement to the piece.

This is the first time I had tried doing the quilting on the small blocks before putting it all together.  I am quite pleased with it, especially the part about not having to manhandle a large, heavy pile of fabric through the sewing machine.  It is a bold statement piece but it is only 25 inches square so it would fit perfectly on a small wall, perhaps an entryway. Now I get to decide what my next piece will be....

Aha here is the new post!!!

This is truly beautiful - I love circles on squares, there is something so satisfying about them. And the colours are perfect. what an amazing project - how long did it take?

I am feeling inspired now - I really must make something this year. Perhaps when I go to Cornwall again it will happen.

I really like this! I like that the circles aren't 'perfect' - that there's a real sense of movement - and that there's embroidery added. Nice!!
