As I said before, quilting takes a long time, and it’s not going to be very interesting if I just keep posting pictures of each tiny, laborious bit of hand quilting as it happens. It’s also going to be quite tedious for me if that’s all I’ve got to occupy my time.
Having established (in this series, at least) that peace is grid-shaped and circular, I thought it might be interesting to make a circle sampler quilt. I’ve challenged myself to find as many ways as I can to render circles on square backgrounds, and then I’ll stitch all the squares together into a grid formation. Each circle might become a little moment of peace.
I’ve cut 36 background squares, each 6.5″, and have come up with a few ideas for starters. 36 squares (each with a different circle) will make a 6 x 6 quilt about 36″ square. I like the neatness of square numbers.
So, in between bits of quilting and larger cloths, I might share each little circle as it is completed. I have no idea how the finished thing will look, but I think the idea is quite exciting. I wonder if readers will agree, when we get to ‘circle #34’. Maybe it’s just another kind of tedium. You’re welcome to yawn along with me.
