Ode to Mondrian

It is an absolutely beautiful spring day here in SE Michigan.  I spent a good part of the day pruning raspberries and moving some blueberry bushes.  Feels like Spring!

I also managed to get in the quilt room today to work on a wall hanging that I have loaded on the longarm.  I was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s work and wanted to make a quilt using the same principles.  Plus, it gives me a lot of negative space to practice my free motion quilting.  My sister says that it reminds her of the mod dresses from the 60s.  I just find it perky!

Happy Spring Quilting!

Logan’s quilt

January 9, 2017

Over the holidays I managed to quilt and bind a small split rail fence top that my son pieced back when he was in elementary school.  He’s now 24!.  This Fall, I was cleaning out  my sewing room to make space for the longarm and found the top in a box.  So I decided it would be one of his Christmas gifts.  It had been ignored way too long.  The pattern was from an Alex Anderson book Kids Start Quilting.  I did random lines in the opposite directions of the piecing in each block and some scallops around the border.  Very simple.
