I’m making these circles different sizes – ranging between about 1″ and 5″ – so that when the squares are stitched together, there will be some interest in the overall composition.
This is a comparatively small circle, about 1.5″ in diameter, made by needle-weaving with space-dyed cotton threads on 32-count aida.
I used a darker thread for the warp and a lighter one for the weft, and a whipped running stitch around the edge. It probably needs a good iron to get rid of that crease in the aida, but I’ll deal with all that at the end. These are all works in progress, incidentally: I’ll be adding more stitching and quilting once the squares are pieced together. For now I’m just concentrating on getting the circles composed.
