Infrastructure Week 6 - Row 6

Now that everyone is practiced making triangles in blocks it's time to make some more this week!  For the solid version on Infrastructure we will be using Superior Solids Light Yellow and Charcoal.  For more information on the Geo Pop version please visit Christa's blog.

Infrastructure Row 6 - fabrics

After cutting instructions you'll end up with yellow side units and squares with charcoal triangles.  This block uses negative space to create the anvil shape.

Infrastructure Row 6 - Units


Each picture or object has both negative and positive space.  For example type the letter "A"the positive space is the black and the negative space is the white, both together for the letter.  Unlike row 4 where the triangles were the positive space and the side pieces were the negative space, row 6 reverses the roles making the triangle the negative space.

Infrastructure Row 6


By playing with the negative and positive space of a unit or block in a quilt design you can completely change the look of your design without changing the piecing method.  I hope after making row 6 people will play with the negative and positive spaces in their favorite quilt block

  18. I love that about quilting--take a pair of simple shapes, turn them this way and that, and be amazed at how your perception of color or pattern is shifted. HSTs and half-rectangle-triangles are great for that.
