We had a great meeting last night and I hope everyone made it home safe before the impending ice storm.
Jill's "Modern Minute" this month touched on Negative Space. We looked through Pinterest pages of how different quilters used their negative space. We had a discussion of how, for some people, they view negative space as another opportunity to get creative with quilting. Others may see it as a blank slate that needs to be filled with fabric. Either way, you can't go wrong. It is all up to interpretation!
Put Down the Quilting Book! Alternate Inspiration
We all love to buy and look through quilting books. But if we are always looking at quilts, we may never see what else we could create. What are some other places for inspiration?
Where else do you find inspiration?
Mad Libs and Quilts???
To finish up the evening. We did a Mad Lib and came up with the following words.
Now, take three (3) words and use them to inspire a quilt drawing. Instead of showing you what we all came up with (that would stump your own creativity), you pick three words and try it out yourself.
