My Quip – Mondrian I Progress


This is our “Mondrian” square.

The works of Pieter Cornelis “Piet” Mondriaan, after 1912 Mondrian, are the inspiration for my next quilt designs for our Rainbow Series. Mondrian’s compositions of lines and quadrilaterals have provided me with a concrete and simple method of inter-connecting fabrics of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors.

The inserted image is Mondrian’s 1923 Composition A: Composition with Black, Red, Gray, Yellow, and Blue. It is oil on canvas and is housed at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome.

Our Mondrian I quilt is a configuration of 30 14” (35.6 cms) squares. Each square is constructed with six batik fabrics.

All squares are identical in color and form. A black patterned fabric, as sashing, will border each square and will also border the perimeter of the quilt. To that affect, there is a sense of a created stained-glass window. Mondrian I will join our Rainbow Glass quilt as complementary within our Rainbow Series.

Stay-tuned for our progress.
