Two squares

Square 22 is, unusually, just one piece of fabric.  No layering, no patchwork, no collage.  It’s almost the very last piece of one of my favourite batik cottons:

And Square 23 is also very simple, made from Catherine’s hand-dyed cotton and silk:
Sometimes very simple is best.

    FB won't let me comment – but these are lovely, Kaye. I was looking at my old work last week and thought: radical simplification is the next step.

    Just love that top fabric, It may be just one piece of fabric, but by stitching into it it has made it much more, a 3D like quality. Are these going towards a bigger something?

    The simplicity is lovely and the way you have stitched the top piece makes the circles look as if they have been appliqued.

    I can see why that one would be a favourite. It is beautiful and your stitches are adding even more. Fantastic!

    Thanks so much for the lovely comments. Some of you have 'no reply' blogger email addresses so I can't respond direct to some of you.In answer to @home, yes, these squares are part of the friendship cloth – you can see more by finding the label 'friendship cloth' in the right hand sidebar. All the squares are also in their own set on my flickr page.
