Workshop in Progress - January 26

It's another week in the Workshop.

Thank-you so much for your tips on marking tools. I'm really keen to get one of those Hera tools. For now, I'm still eyeballing things, but I do like the idea of it.

This week I'd actually love it if you could help me out by pointing me to some favourite quilts. I'm in a photography class right now and I'm working on translating the concept of negative space from quilts to my photos. I'd love it if you could share links/photos to quilts you think demonstrate this concept. I know it's a bit different than expected for the Workshop, but sharing ideas is sharing ideas.

Don't forget to share your links here, I'm excited to see what you've got.

Negative space in photos and quilts. Great example you've posted. I've got lots of negative space here in my playroom this week so I've nothing to show this week.

I'm not sure if you are looking for great quilts with negative space or great quilts in general? Here is one that may fit both. Enjoy your class. http://www.flickr.com/photos/14101877@N02/4704339467/in/faves-35296398@N06/

Hi! I'm new to your blog - Nice to meet you! I jumped in on WIP Wednesday if that's okay. I'll be more prepared next time. : )

Yoshiko Jinzenji is brilliant with negative space in her quilts. I love how she's mostly negative.

I was browsing this collection http://explorer.quiltstudy.org/#/browse/
and there are some overviews of quilts with a lot of alternating black/colorfullness in it - could count for negative space...
Good luck!
