Heart Design Quilt with Positive & Negative Space

Quilt It | Jamie Wallen-Week 2 | Episode 105

Jodie and Jamie step to the longarm machine and look over a completed heart design quilt. They then work on a sample quilt with positive and negative space. Jamie suggests setting the machine for 12 stitches to the inch and a regulated stitch so the stitches keep up with your movements, making you the boss. Begin in the upper left corner and back stitch to lock threads. Stitch just as you drew. Jamie adds another heart element to the sample and adds echoing to blend the designs together. Jodie tries her hand at free motion quilting the heart design. This creates a trapunto design with the hearts making a positive space, while the echo stitching creates negative space.

After this video head over to part 3 which Jamie shows a interesting way to embellish by stitching butterflies on quilt.
