Jaye was gracious enough to take time out of her busy holiday schedule to talk with us once again about a design element that, frankly, I think is one of my favorites: negative space. She describes what negative space is and how to harness its power for good.

Also in this episode: Sandy Update, a little about pillowcases, a reminder of the Quilty Resolutions Giveaway and a related request, and listener feedback.

Visit Jaye's blog for her notes on negative space (and an image of that quilt block we kept talking about).

I begin with a little Sandy update, plus an announcement of a new giveaway/challenge I'm co-sponsoring with Tanesha of CraftyGardenMom Podcast: The Banned Books Challenge Giveaway. Listen for the details! The fun then continues with another installment in the design series with Jaye--this time, we're talking about shape.

We're on a roll! Two episodes in a row in the design series. Yippee! In this episode, we follow up our discussion about shape with conversation about form. And we leave you with some more existential questions to keep you awake at night. I also talk about some new apps I've been trying out, my trip to Keepsake Quilting, and do some listener feedback.

For Jaye's supplemental blog post, visit http://www.artquiltmaker.com/blog.

Apps mentioned in this episode:

My Inventory (Droid)

Itemizer / Itemizer Jr.

MyStuff2 Lite

iStorage--when I downloaded this app, it was called iStorage. It has since changed its name (since there's an iStorage app that's cloud storage), and is now called Items & Storage & Inventory Lite.

Jaye's back! Woot woot! Finally we're able to return to our series on design. In this episode, we tackle "shape." That's not quite as straightforward as it may seem, so brew yourself some coffee or tea and get ready to dive in. Jaye has, as always, created a fantastic blog post to go with this episode with all sorts of pictures and recommended resources. Check it out here.

In this episode I review three books (listed below). I also catch you up on my WIPs, talk about #MDSI, and announce a new addition to my blog: Total Color Tuesdays. I hope you'll play along!

Mentioned in this episode:

Quilting Retreat Report (with photos of all my WIPs): http://quiltingfortherestofus.blogspot.com/2012/05/retreat-report.html (Ignore that the first picture doesn't show--it's a weirdism I can't fix. That's just a picture of the back of my car packed for retreat so it's not significant.)

Canal Country Quilters Blog (the blog for my guild): http://canalcq.wordpress.com/.
