Mosaic - Squaring Up - III

Quilt #111

Third in my theme of “squares” is Mosaic in an analogous colour scheme.


For this quilt, I used some of my own hand dyed egyptian cotton as well as some batik.

The design of three large overlapped squares made up of smaller squares was broken up by a few strips of bright lime green.

 The small squares were fused in place before sandwiching the layers.

Each large square area was quilted with a different design before quilting the background in with a straight grid to mimic the appliqued squares.

The binding of diagonal stripes in similar colours adds the finishing touch.

This is the back with the added sleeve and label.
