Machine Quilting Negative Space »
InstructionsI reduced the size of the project and made it into a wall hanging which left less negative space. My goal was to try every design shown in the course and others that I've wanted to try. Now it's a great stitching sampler for me to look at when making other quilting design decisions.

Scraps of cotton from my stash!
What was your inspiration?
First time I've ever pieced a non-traditional quilt. I was inspired by the samples on the course.
What are you most proud of?
My circle stitches which are big in the middle and gradually get smaller to both edges/corners. I like the feathers set in by small paisley quilting. Also that I did this on my home sewing machine as I'm not a long arm owner.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch the videos more than once, especially during the actually stitching on the quilt. AFter you sketched and practiced the stitching designs and fit them into a square or rectangle shape then give yourself the freedom to stitching differently than you've stitched before and let go of a need to be perfect.
