How to Quilt Negative Space

How to Quilt Negative Space We LOVE modern quilts, but with modern quilts often comes lots of negative space. While this can create a very stunning design, it can also create a headache when trying to decide how to quilt it. It doesn’t have to be that way though! When I’m deciding what to quilt in the negative space of a design, I don’t approach it any differently than I do the rest of the quilt.
