Negative Space - in abundance

 Love Patchwork & Quilting issue 18 is available.

 And with that my third quilt in the all-solids trilogy.

Unlike the previously two (here and here)  this quilt uses a more sedate colour pallet and lots and lots of negative space that I was deliriously happy to quilt.

The purple stripes reflect a basket weave pattern where they intersect.

Although it may look complicated, it is actually a very easy quilt to piece and because of the large amount gives you much space to quilt to your heart's content.

I quilted with about 5 different thread colours ranging from off-white to many shades of purple including a variegated thread and the result is a wonderful diverse yet supple quilting pattern.

Read all about the pattern and the quilting technique in the new magazine. The fabric for this quilt was sponsored by the lovely Tina from Tikki Patchwork in Kew.


  1. WOW! This is stunning Judith! I love it in purple, but its fun to imagine it in other colour ways too!

  2. love it!!! Perfect quilting for this quilt too

  3. I love this quilt. Bold geometric style design and loads of quilted lines in different threads - these are my most favourite quilts.

  4. Love everything about this quilt. I especially love the color and the pillow is the best. Favorites so far.

  5. My niece loves this quilt, do you have a pattern for sale with yardage requirments?

  6. Do you have a pattern for this quilt? I have looked everywhere and have not been able to find a similar one.


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
