This quilt is a scaled map of the Six Corners neighborhood of Chicago. I've always loved maps and recently started seeing maps in terms of positive and negative space. I like the interesting shapes formed by the negative space around the street grid in this neighborhood. I used two sizes of bias tape to create the streets on this map and echo quilted the negative space. Cicero, Illinois, United States 30.5" x 36"
