Susan Hill – Circles
For this challenge, I decided just to play, so I made circles in different colors and sizes, in fabrics I had recently used and so were at the top of the pile. The exception to this was the background fabric; I have almost no solids or read-like-solids, and was happy to have occasion to buy one. The fabric I chose was a delight to work with, easy in every way. The unifying element among the circle fabrics was gold, so I sewed the circles to the background (and to the batting) with gold thread. Keeping in mind the stipulation that there must be three layers, and that they must be held together with stitch, I backed the piece with unbleached muslin, and quilted a lattice as background to the circle design. I had a lovely time!
