It's that wonderful time of the year when Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side hosts the Bloggers Quilt Festival - Spring edition. Go be inspired by all the fabulous quilts in several different categories. This is my second entry this year, so my apologies to my readers who have already read this on my earlier post! Welcome to those of you coming over from the linkup, hope to see you again!
I wasn't able to decide what I wanted to post this year, so I decided to post both of them, my first post is here, which is my entry in the Home Machine Quilted category. This is my entry in the Mini Category.
Colourblock was made as a result of a theme challenge in the Tangled Textiles group of "Artistic License". I really enjoy the graphic nature and colour blocking of some of Piet Mondrian's work. This is my interpretation, and I can't begin to tell you how much I like this one! It's simple and clean, graphic - I think there will be more along these lines! Simply quilted with straight lines, which is somewhat unusual for me, who tends to quilt the life out of things...
size: 16" x 16"
quilting: Aurifil thread, 50 wt top and bottom, black & white
Thank you for stopping by and happy quilting!
Very cool, especially the way you quilted this piece.
This is so striking. I love the design and the quilting is a lovely detail.
I love it! How ingenious to reflect all the lines and blocks in the way you've quilted it! I could look at it a long time:-)
Colour blocked, and quilt blocked! I love the simplicity and the boldness of the whole design! A lot!
I really like this! The quilting just makes it.
Very graphic! It's great Janet!
Wow!!! something so simple turned into something so extraordinary! How do you do it???
I love your Mondriaan quilt, of course I do! The straight line quilting is so effective in this design! Brilliant!
This is brilliant, I really love it.
Okay, this quilt is only second in sequence! It is #1 in my eyes...I love the simple but really effective quilting. It reminds me of plaid!! Another beautiful entry! Thank you for sharing your work.

That quilting is so cool! Totally transforms the quilt.
Oh, this is so beautiful!
Now THAT's how you do texture! Great job and so precisely quilted.
The quilting really adds to the design. Well done.
You have captured the Mondrian style so well and the use of those quilting lines gives it so much added interest without taking anything away from the colour blocking.. Love it.
What a great mini! Those quilting lines are so exact. well done!
LOve the color and the straight lines of quilting. Simple but so effective.
I love this! The quilting is great, really makes it pop.
The quilting just MAKES this little mini! Very creative!
WOW! I love how you let the quilting do most of the talking on this piece. It really brings out the blocks of colour and adds a ton of visual interest. Great idea!
