Five Squares

This quilt was completed recently after a slow start of working with some discharged and hand-dyed fabrics without a plan or format in mind. After adding some batik fabrics, I assembled some blocks.

I cut the blocks into triangles and reorganized them into the 5 center squares.

I wanted to see if the overall composition would be more interesting if I substituted more of the discharged fabric in the center.

But I decided to stay with the design of all 5 similar blocks. The finished piece is approximately 52" square.

It was quilted on the long-arm machine with a gold/green variegated thread in a random design of interlocking squares.
