Accentuate the Negative by Trisch Price

As many of you know Trisch is my sister.  She just received several copies of her book a couple of days ago.

In her book she explains how to use negative space to enhance quilt design.  I haven’t actually read the book yet but I’ve seen all of the quilts and they are fabulous!

I was up close and personal with one of the quilts for about a week.  Trisch asked me to quilt one of them.  I had a choice of 3-4 quilts and when I saw this one I knew exactly how I would quilt it.  It is called Hopscotch.

Here are a couple of close-ups.

As you can see the top section of the quilt is very light and almost blends in with the background.  I used several different fillers for each of the sections.

The background of the quilt is completely filled with spirals.

Here are some in-progress pictures
