MQG Quilt of the Month February 2018

Do you recognize this block? There’s a churn dash hiding in there. This quilt takes the basic units of a classic block and plays with the relationship between negative and positive space to make an entirely fresh new design. Most people have seen those black and white pictures that illustrate the profiles of two people but if you look at it long enough it turns into a table lamp or vase. Now look at your favorite quilt block and do the same thing. By changing up the negative and positive space in a block you will be able to change the entire look. Take a step further and rotate the different units within the block or play with the proportions to change it up completely!
