Sylvia Schaefer is headed to the LAMQG for a lecture & workshop in March!
Sylvia will give her lecture, “Designing With Negative Space” via zoom at our regular guild meeting on Monday, March 14, 2022 @ 7:30pm.
She says, “Many quilters enjoy the modern aesthetic but are overwhelmed when considering designing their own quilt. This lecture gives you concrete step-by-step ideas on how to begin with a traditional quilt block and then alter it to incorporate negative space (also known as background area). Plus, I’ll give you suggestions on fabric and quilting choices for your design.”
Just a few days later, she’ll give a virtual workshop called “Designing With Negative Space” on Saturday March 19, 2022, 10am- 1pm. $25 for members, $30 for non-members. Registration is open! Contact our treasurer Maureen to sign up or Venmo @lamqgtreasurer.
“This non-sewing workshop leads quilters through a number of exercises on designing modern quilts starting from traditional blocks. We’ll get everyone’s creative juices flowing by using colored pencils, scissors, and glue sticks to create fabulous modern quilt designs that incorporate negative space.”
