I have discovered that working in series can be quite addictive :-). For Stitched I have to create 4 quilts by the end of the year and I have to admit that they are done already. Guess I will have more than 4 by the end of the year .
For this quilt I started with a hand dyed piece of fabric which I made a couple of years ago in one of Carol Soderlund´s classes.  I cut circles out of freezer paper in such a way that only slight areas would be open. With a stencil brush I applied the paint onto the fabric. Let it dry, repositioned the circles and repeated the process. For quilting I followed the circles and  filled up the open spaces. Sofar the only downside I can find with working in themes that it difficult to find suitable titles. Of course I could just number them, but that is a bit boring. For now the title for this piece is Overlapping Circles. Maybe I change that if I find a more interesting title. Size of this quilt is 12"x24" (30x60 cm).


I am linking this to Nina Marie´s Off the Wall Friday. Check out this link to see other interesting work.

Wil, I love your circles! And you are right about the series thing -- I am always thinking "what if I did this next time?" when I am working on a piece. It's addictive and the series may never end...

It is a very effective design - i can see why you are making a series. As to title - pebbles in a pond - ripples?

ummm love circles in any form. Working is series is very satisfying. You learn so much and one leads to the next so there is all that momentum.

I really like the colors and they "pop" on that turquoise background. Beautifully done, the imperfection of the circles is refreshing, and adds movement.

What is it about circles that is so fascinating? I love your rendition and look forward to what else you come up with.

Thanks Hilary! You gave me an idea. I am going to call this quilt: Throwing pebbles into the pond.

You're really onto something here, Wil. Love what you're doing with these circles! :-)

P.S. What d'you think would happen if you overlapped a rectangle or two...? Just askin'!

Such a simple idea and yet so very effective. I think this particular series is very good for you!
