"Think simple" as my old master used to say - meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.”
~ Frank Lloyd Wright
I am in search of simplicity.
Simplicity in design. Simplicity in form. Simplicity in function.
This new functional art quilt is back to the basics, with simply block piecing and straight rows of quilting. I hope that the simplicity of the design, coupled with my best craftsmanship and fabric selection, translates into a touch of eclectic elegance in which ever way it is used...
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
"Simplicity, carried to an an extreme, becomes elegance." ~ Jon Franklin
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” ~ Albert Einstein
Note: One thing that is not simple is getting the colors to show true in each picture. Something I was not able to achieve here due to fluctuating lighting as I took the pictures, as well as the various places the photos are loaded on. Blogger, Etsy, and Flicker all show the colors differently. Drives me crazy! I would say, at least as far as my monitor is concerned, that the 1st and 3rd pictures shown here, are most accurate in representing the quilts true colors.
