Piet Mondriaan Mission

Have you heard of Piet Mondriaan? I didn't think I had, but my recent Richmond and Kew Consequences Quilt challenge had me looking him up for inspiration.

I didn't know the name, but I certainly knew the images:

The request was for solid fabrics in geometric blocks: a wider scope than the traditional rectangles, and a bigger variety of colours: I went for paper pieced (EPP) hexies, whilst sticking to the traditional colours

However . . .

For all the other Consequences Quilts I have also completed a machine embroidered block, and I decided to keep the tradition going, and designed and stitched this very traditional one too

And all the contributed blocks so far:

Doesn't it look fab!

Happy New Year to you all :-)


  1. so colourful and I am a fan of geometric I suppose that is why I like quilting

  2. What a bright colourful start to your quilt Benta!

  3. wow! 2015 is certainly going to be colourful in your house xx

  4. Another friend had some Mondriaan print fabric that I saw recently, but damned if I can remember who it was!

  5. Happy new year, Benta! You sure had a fabulous start, your blocks look great :-)

  6. His paintings make for good quilt patterns. I really like your embroidered block.

  7. Happy New Year, Benta! You are sure off to a colourful start, and it's looking fantastic. I'm going to have to check out your inspiration!
