Overlap is #6 and last (for now) in my series “Squaring Up”.
For this quilt I cut squares from discharged pieces as well as hand-dyed and a few rusted experiments.
All the pieces were backed with fusible web, cut into squares of different sizes and then overlapped and fused to a backing.
The quilt sandwich was stitched with decorative machine stitches in circles using a circle attachment on my Bernina.
I stippled in each circle using the same colour and overlapped the stippling as well. Any areas not covered by circles was quilted with a straighter lined design.
This square inspired my colour choice for my overlapped circles.
