Q98 – Mondrian I – Quilt

Good Day,

We have finished! Mondrian I is one beautiful quilt… and our new original addition to our Rainbow Glass Series.

Inspired by the works of Piet Mondrian and a number of stained glass window artists, we have tried to capture the idea of the sun reflecting through the many panels of glass.

Mondrian I equals 810 double beveled squares and rectangles in 30 “window panes”. Each rectangle and square is quilted individually… on a domestic sewing machine. Each pane is 13”by 13”, (33 cms by 33 cms), square. Within each pane there are 27 rectangles and squares and the dimensions of Mondrian I are: Width: 74” (188 cms) and Length: 88” (224 cms).

Here are images and closeups of Mondrian I.

And we haven’t got a clue how much thread we used… There is a lot.

Mondrian I is now enroute to the Home Machine Quilting Show which runs from May 10 to 12 at the South Towne Exposition Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

And now we continue with our further endeavors and new quilts. You'll have to check back time and again to check up on our work and status.

I am glad you didn't do the pebbling. It looks beautiful.
