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!
