Almost every definition of modern quilting that I've read uses the term Negative Space as a strong characteristic of modern quilting......I keep failing on a regular basis. I just can't help myself.
A lovely fellow quilter/blogger once said to me "I'll keep talking until somebody shuts me up." She'll probably recognize herself, but hey I'm not naming any names or passing judgement.....I'm not exactly known for being a woman of few words myself. I'm the same way in the quilting world. I love negative space but I just keep adding more colours and fabrics....perhaps somebody should stop me.
I love silence but maybe I love words more.....I love negative space but maybe I love filling it more.
I spent my week working on my Not So Negative Quilt......hmm, does that make it a positive? Is it still modern with it's lack of negative space? Lets not put modern quilting in a box....whoops maybe we already have.
I had plans for negative space midway through this project, last year (note, this Work in Progress is a few years old).
but look at what one walk in the park did for that idea....inspiration struck and more colours and fabrics had to be added.
Now, back to joining those rows together.....
