The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Mondrian's Window" by Allie Aller
Do a puzzle of Allie Aller's quilt, Mondrian's Window.
Mondrian's Window, named after the painter Piet Mondrian, is Allie's return to functional quilts. So even though it is a stunning showpiece, Allie considers it to be a couch quilt as it is made with cotton batting, simply quilted, and is meant to be used. The quilt was created using both silk and Radiance by Robert Kaufman, a 50/50 silk/cotton blend. The luminosity of the fabrics gives a much more vivid impact and when quilted, the angles of light reflect off their surfaces. Allie even used plaid silk in this wonderful composition of fabrics.
