Mondrian Art: Ode to a Red Dress



The inspiration for this piece was the work of artist Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan, Jr., (March 7, 1872-February 1, 1944). He was a Dutch abstract painter . He painted in a spare, precise, geometric manner mostly using primary colors. It was a style that Mondrian called neoplasticism.
This piece measures 12 inches by 19 inches. The red dress was hand embroidered, stiffened with heavy starch and then cut out and applied to piece with Heat and Bond.


This is the first project for season II of Project Quilting.
