Semblance Quilt Pattern


This quilt, named Semblance, is designed with my improv paper piecing technique. I think of the expressions “semblance of order” and “semblance of normalcy” and think that they both work. When you look at this quilt quickly, you see order. Your eye is drawn to the repeated circular shapes. But if you pause for a moment, right beneath the surface, there is a second design. There are four on point squares formed by blocks that are sewn with fabrics a few shades lighter. I intentionally chose to use the lighter fabrics to create on point squares that were not complete circles, but rather a quadrant from each circle. I think that this helps draws your eyes to the circular shapes first and those lighter squares second.
