The use of negative space appears in most sections but there is a separate category too. For some reason I've taken only a limited number of photos none of which depict quilts with large amounts of negative space.
|I've included this because it's by a UK quilter,|

It's called Finding Structure and is a swatch made with moving material around on a design wall.

|Lorena Uriarte: Sakura Breeze representing the fleeting|
nature of the Japanese Cherry Blossom season. She uses

|Lovely curved hand quilting with central ties.|

She describes a magical moment lying on the grass at a summer concert when the words of the song sounded out and children in front blew bubbles.
|Although hard to see she makes interesting use of negative space by piecing the white background fabrics in same way as the coloured blocks.|
