I am excited to be sharing another finished art project. Today’s item was started during my adventures with Pam Beal at her class Minimalist Design, Maximum Impact.
Being only 2 1/2 x 2 1/2” in size I’m absolutely certain you can figure out the reason for her name. This teeny tiny specimen was made from one of my leftover scraps.
Itty Bitty certainly meets the criteria for minimalism:
a style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity
Being so small, Itty Bitty doesn’t need a fancy introduction. All of her features can easily be seen in the photo below. Say hello to Itty Bitty, AP # 78!
What is it?
Any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.
Minimal Quiltmaking by Gwen Marston
Early in June I took a class taught by Pam Beal. The class title was
Minimalist Design, Maximum Impact.
I’ve been experimenting with fabric for decades.
My path began with structured piecing using quilt patterns and rigid measurements. From there I turned to impromptu piecing.
My first introduction to minimalist design was through a book written by Rayna Gillman and reinforced by a class of hers.
Pam says she is
an improvisational quilter from the Liberated School of Design.
I enjoyed listening to and learning from Pam. Here’s one of her wonderful quilts.
While at the class I created a number of small art pieces. Some of them used colors and combinations that were out of my comfort zone.
The mini projects, numbering at least 16, are anxious to meet you.
Be watching for their debut.
Blessings to you!
