I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’ve been working for a quilt shop for the past year or just seeing trends pop up, but I’ve really taken notice to the trend of Geometric Art everywhere! With basic shapes as the primary subject, your eye can focus on the relationship of colors and texture and the emotion it evokes.
Here are some of my favorites from around the web:
I love this large scale art that you can apply right to your wall! What a great way to add color to your room without having to commit to a bright paint color.
It’s time to revisit some of the old classic art forms. Young people are turning to the crafts their parents and grandparents enjoyed… cross stitch, embroidery, quilting, knitting… there is a reason these hobbies have withstood the test of time! I might even have to try it if I can find some fun patterns like this one!
I love this City Scape Art, that is made up of simple geometric shapes. Look at the overlapping of the buildings and the colors it creates. It’s so simple, but still has depth and movement.
I love this Hexagon Quilt from Nicole of Modern Handcraft. She paper pieced each little hexagon… it’s definitely a labor of love. But English paper piecing has been around for centuries and quilting. You would never guess it by looking at this quilt, with its fun, bright colors and modern arrangement.
Such a simple design, but I love it so much! The gradient of the water getting darker and darker emphasizes the depth of the ocean. What does it make you think of?
Of course, when you talk about one trend another is bound to appear. This Geometric Stag is pretty great though… this would be a great pattern to use for String Art (another trend I am completely on board with!)!!
