Road To California
added two new categories to their
Judged Quilt Show this year:
Negative Space In Modern Quilts
With being part of a Modern Quilt Guild myself
one who loves Log Cabin quilts (especially unique ones)
I was quite taken with
The Long Winter
by Catherine Redford
"I made this quilt for the Naperville MQG Log Cabin Challenge
from just one charm pack
cut into 1 inch strips
and pieced into blocks with a coordinating white fabric.
I set the blocks with more white squares for a
deconstructed log cabin effect.
Dense straight line quilting adds visual interest
in the extensive negative space.
Log cabins emerge from a snowy background
bring to mind my very favorite
Little House On The Prairie book."
Catherine took home a 1st place ribbon
in the Negative Space In Modern Quilts category
Impressive that she only used 1 charm pack in the construction, too.
This is a design I would love to make someday.
