My Mondrian block.....

I finished my Mondrian block and am so happy with it.  I wanted a clean, simplistic, graphic, childlike look and I think I got it...my fantasy of what might have been Mondrian's work as a child...and would his teacher have thought "This kid is on to something!!!"  Everything but the bees is done in a flat chain stitch...

When I was reading about Mondrian about every third sentence was "and then he moved".  His passion for his work was the primary force to where he lived...  The adage "Home is where you hang your hat" popped in my brain and I translated to "Home is where you hang your heart."

Margreet asked that we include our initials and mine are in the red patch above the hanging heart..

I love what you've done with this block. It would have been a real challenge for me!
Happy, happy birthday to you!

What a wonderful idea Gerry! Thank you for releasing me from my struggle in my mind, what in earth I can do with Margreet´s block. NOW I KNOW, I only hope no-one else will get the same idea, I am the last one in the rotation. Brrrr...

I feel like you whipped that one out! It's very sweet and I was surprised by the childlike approach but I liked it. Where could I see all the blocks together? Is there a link?
