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
