A Study In Minimalism I and II


Lately I’ve been sharing art pieces started while in attendance at Pam Beal’s Minimalist Design, Maximum Impact class. The art quilts I’m sharing today bring my series to a close. Let’s take a look back at the other projects. Click on any of the photos to view them as a slide show.

Let’s turn now to today’s specimens. Known as A Study in Minimalism I and A Study in Minimalism II, these two were created to hang together.

A Study In Minimalism I and II, AP # 91 & 92

Of the fifteen projects created at Pam’s class I would have to say that these two are my favorites and here’s why.

  • I like their overall color schemes.
  • The colors used work harmoniously with one another.
  • Their subject matter is simple yet elegant.
  • The quilting compliments the natural lines of the units.
  • They were created to hang together.

I had a great time creating these quilts. Both started with scraps leftover from other art pieces. If you have been a follower of my blog you are aware of my fondness for raw edges and fabric fringe. The quilt on the left has three fabrics with raw edges and one even has fringe. The art piece on the left measures 19 1/2 x 9 1/2” and the quilt on the right measures 19 1/2 x 8 3/4”.

I learned so much from Pam Beal! Thank You Pam for sharing your methods and insight. Your influence will always play a role in my thought process.

Thank you for following this series!

  1. Cindy! Your work is AMAZING! I love the Wise Old Owl and of course all the pieces. I continue to be amazed by the amazing palettes and fabrics you use (yes I use versions of the word “amaze” a lot in this comment but it applies to your work!) 🙂

  2. Hi Cindy! So much goodness in one post. That gray, white and hot pink one just takes my breath away. SO fabulous. All of them are though. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Interesting. I enjoyed seeing your experiments. The experimentation of fabric and thread colour combinations is interesting and I agree that the last two one are good. They are both very calming and aesthetically pleasing
