Mondrian…finished

23 July 2017

Ok…I think I truly am going to need to work on my blogging updates.  There just always seems to be time to sew or quilt, but not quite enough to write about it.  Note to self… get crackin’!

So my Ode to Mondrian is finished and I did want to post a picture of it completely finished.

Mondrian finished WM

You’ll notice that I did not bind it traditionally, but used a facing instead.  I love the clean finish on the this quilt and I really think it works.  I followed the directions from art quilter, Terry Aske’s blog on her favorite quilt facing technique.  As a garment sewer, it just makes sense to me.  So…check it out!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

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!

UFO 1 Bound and Finished …hurray!

9 patch bound (2)

Well, it’s off the plate…and I should be moving on to the other UFOs.  Some how I keep getting distracted with other projects…

So, I’ve been distracted in a modern Mondrian inspired direction.   It is pieced and now on the longarm partially quilted.  This was a piece as I went kind-a thing.  Very fun…I will post once it is all quilted.
