I finished quilting 3 new pieces today. All were pieced in February as part of the studioQ monthly masterpiece inspiration challenge.
The piece chosen that month was Abstraction by Piet Mondrian. Simple and elegant.

Mondrian was well known for his use of white, black and primary colors. So I decided to stick with that palette. And I decided to use my favorite unit, the tuning fork, to make the first piece.
As I mentioned in my Art With Fabric Blog Hop post, although I still use the tuning fork units, the shape of the tuning fork is no longer easy to pick out in the piece. They have become very indistinct and blendy, which I am finding a lot of fun to work with. So, here is my first piece, "T with Mondrian (Tuning Fork #30)." Thanks, Nikki Mahaffey, for the name suggestion!

I had so much fun with the first one, I decided to make a small (12" x 12") piece to donate to the SAQA Benefit Auction. This is "RePiet (Tuning Fork #33)". This quilt will be auctioned in September to fund the Studio Art Quilt Associates exhibition and publication programs. Click on the link above for more information.

For the last Mondrian inspired piece, I decided to try something else. So I did some improvisational cutting, slicing and sewing. It was great fun! And the result is the following piece, "Climbing"
