Modern art inspired Mini Quilt - a Finish Friday

Mondrian inspired modern mini quilt
Quilter in the Closet: Modern Mini's inspired by artists, this one was inspired by Mondrian

I finished another Modern Mini.  This one was inspired by Piet Mondrian, who you can learn more about here at the Moma site..  I've seen all kinds of Mondrian inspired things, including a mini petit four with a Mondrian-like interior!

When it came to quilting this mini, I stared at it a long time.   I didn't want to interfere too much with the pieced design, but I didn't want to just SID either.  In the end, I decided to try something new - thanks again to the Craftsy class by Jacquie Gering called Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot (affiliate link).  In the class, she discusses trying out some of your decorative stitches for quilting.  Add that influence and a piece I saw in a recent Stitch Magazine on how to create your own plaid fabrics and well, this quilt was quilted.

I rather like the effect!  And I might have to try out that technique again soon.

Thanks for reading today,

  1. Your quilting is really something different. I like it.

  2. I love Mondrian and think he's such a great inspiration for quilters!

  3. I do love me some Mondrian! Yours looks great, Jen. I especially like the stitch accents you did. Great job!

  4. Love the quilting, Jen! And the different colours of threads you used together. Really adds a bold statement. Such a great piece!

  5. I love the quilting!! What a neat concept, and it works so well with the Mondrian-inspired quilt. :)

  6. That quilting works really well! And what a lovely patchwork! ( PS, visitor to the house was stopped in her tracks when she saw the wallhanging ( it's never going to have a sewing machine put on it!). I've had to wipe the drool from the floor in front of it, and I'll need to check her luggage when she leaves!!!!!!!)

  7. This is beautiful. And I love the effect the decorative stitches give the quilt.

  8. Love Love Love (if i knew how to make those little hearts i would !~!)


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
