Minimalist Quilting

My friend Mary has the new book by Gwen Marston called Minimalist Quiltmaking. I saw the quilts and got all excited and had to try my hand at the concept. The designs of the quilts were very direct, unapologetic and strong. I loved them. Bold color and shape, with interesting straight line quilting made a big impact. 
 My version is 16.25" x 18.5" and is hand dyed cottons, machine pieced and machine quilted.


  1. It is fabulous! You really took it and ran with it. Beautiful colors and quilting.

    1. She takes everything good and runs with it and ends up with something better. She is blessed magic practiced skilled wonderful!

  2. Isn't it an amazing book! I bought it a few months ago and my reaction was the same as yours.
    I joined up with the Working in a Series 2015 to make a series of small pieces in this style.
    I love what you have done here!

  3. The quilting lines are great. I love the minimalist look.

  4. I love this! I'm intrigued that these many lines, seemingly close spaced, could be called minimalist.
