What are you most proud of? I designed it myself, and I think it turned out well - the color balance and whatnot. The quilting of the color blocks is just simple parallel lines, 2 inches apart, in different directions on each block. I also got the nerve up to FMQ some stippling along the outer border. I think it looks good, considering it was my first actual attempt to stipple a real quilt, because I had been practicing for a few weeks on scraps. I really do like the way everything turned out on this project. I look at it and can't help but smile. **Patting myself on the back**

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Color is your friend! Big blocks of bright color, framed in black - how can you go wrong?? Just try it and you will be pleasantly surprised by the final result. It is a simple quilt to put together, and the machine quilting can be as simple or as complex as you want it.

Cool! Love the block design!

Great Mondrian design - color blocks are a good way to practice free motion quilting - lots of space to work with

Nice quilt back - I actually just did something similar on 2 quilts I was finishing up today. I usually have several quilt tops done and then get around to the backs and the quilting. I really like the extra interest the strip gives.

I had extra tops lying around too, my only issue with that is they never seemed to get finished/quilted, so I am forcing myself to not start a new project until I finish the current one. It's hard! So many quilt tops to piece, so little time. LOL

Thank you for sharing this fabulous quilt. I had never heard of Mondrian quilts so did some research. This is definitely for me. I love primary colours and solid fabrics. This is definitely on my "must do" list.

Thank you, Ladymax... I don't know if the term is even a real term, I just named my project after the artist. Yes, I do love those big blocks of color as well. Check out the first Mondrian quilt I made - it is almost an exact copy of one of the ortist's most famous pieces. This project here was Mondrian "inspired". I would love to see your Mondrian quilt when you finish it! They are fun and easy to make, so go for it!

Wow! You should pat yourself on the back because this is a great quilt. What was your inspiration? It reminds me of the Austin Powers 'Mod' movement. Lol. Have you given any thought of selling your pattern for this quilt?? Just saying . . . SarahB
