Machine Quilting Negative Space:
Check Out These Projects from Our Craftsy Community

Posted by on Sep 6, 2012 in Quilting | Comments


One of the hottest trends in the quilting world is turning negative space into fabulous works of art using machine quilting! Why waste valuable negative space with boring designs? Craftsy quilters are joining the negative-space revolution, and using machine-quilting techniques to adorn that space with beautiful thread design.

 

We’re loving the results! Here are some examples of negative-space quilting created by our very own Craftsy members:
