Guidelines for free motion quilting: 1. Quilt in a creative environment. Hang your favorite pieces where you can see them while you work. 2. Have a quilting plan, but be flexible. I preview the quilting pattern on a piece of upholstery vinyl using an air erasable pen holding it over the top. If I don' t like it I erase it and try another pattern. 3. Don't rush. It creates body tension and makes you tired. You can't do your best when you're tired and it's no longer fun. 4. Don't practice......quilt those tops as you finish them. You will have completed quilts and better FMQ skills with each one. 5. Learn to listen to your machine. It will tell you when something isn't right. 6. Don't buy cheap thread. It will not perform well and you will have wasted your time. 7. Keep chocolate on hand. It makes everything better.

This is a modern Spider Web Quilt made with fabric selvedges. The negative space creates a new shape between the blocks. Look at your favorite quilt pattern or design and notice how the negative space enhances the design.
Spiderweb Quilt by Jacquie Gering. I like the quilting in the negative space here.
Spider Web selvage quilt Quilt Name: Tin Ceiling http://tallgrassprairiestudio.blogspot.com/2010/04/spiderweb-tutorial-for-selvages.html
Spider web; Beautiful quilt.
The Positive Effects of Negative Space Todays tutorial isn't a how to, it's more of a what's it all about. Our "What is Modern Quilting" statement says that modern quilters use more negative space...
for mom's string quilt
String pieced spider web quilt....would be great for using selvage edges.
