Sylvia Schaefer  Pattern designer, author, & quilt lover! I particularly love making quilts inspired by science.

Forgot to post yesterday’s block of the month at @sewsewstudio! This is from the #quiltblockcookbook. We worked on curves, next month we’ll be trying out appliqué!

Today is brought to you by the letter F! It's my stop on the blog tour for @wholecirclestudio's new Typecast English paper piecing pattern. F is for Flying Parrot Quilts, but it's also for many of my favorite things—flutes, fountain pens, fabric, feathers, and flowers!
Sheri designed a whole alphabet, so be sure to follow along with the blog hop to see your favorite letter, plus she's got giveaways of the pattern every Friday until mid-May!

I’m excited to be sharing The Quilter’s Negative Space Handbook, a new book by Sylvia Schaefer @flyingparrotquilts with @ctpublishing, on my blog today! This book is such a great resource for designing your own unique modern quilts, and covers multiple different techniques for incorporating negative space as a design element.
I used two of Sylvia’s techniques to create the designs you see here, based on one of my favorite classic quilt blocks.
Head over to my blog today to read more, along with a chance to win your own digital copy of Sylvia’s fabulous book!

When I had the opportunity to film 2 segments for @freshquiltingtv and @themqg in June 2017, I also had the good fortune to get to meet Sylvia Schaefer of @flyingparrotquilts in person. Not only do I love Sylvia’s science background and how she incorporates it into her work and designs, but I admire her aesthetic and am excited today to tell you about her recently published book with @ctpublishing, The Quilter’s Negative Space Handbook.

Using the principals in her book, I modified my design on the left into something that excites me much more on the right. Full details today #OnTheBlog with a giveaway as well, so be sure to hop over and check it out! #PushPullQuilt

Today’s blog hop stop is @cassandra.beaver (who quilted the quilt for the first pattern in the book), and, overachiever that she is, she’s already pieced a quilt top out of her design! You’ll want to follow the completion of this one; she’s sure to win awards for it!
. . .
Here’s the quilt top for my next plaid quilt! I used a different technique to create the design that was inspired by a method from The Quilter’s Negative Space Handbook by @flyingparrotquilts I have written more about the book and the process used to develop this design today on the blog. You can also leave a comment on the blog post for a chance to win a digital copy of the book!
