QuiltCon 2015: Use of Negative Space part 1

Here we have the first of 2 installments of the quilts from The Use of Negative Space category at QuiltCon 2015, sponsored by APQS.  The winners of the category will be at the end of Part 2.

We just HAVE to start out with a quilt by Jacquie Gering, author of Quilting Modern,  renowned teacher, on the board of The Modern Quilt Guild, QuiltCon organizer and just about everything.  Besides, negative space in quilting is one of her trademarks. I admit, I’m a fan.

Enjoy!
