Fibonacci Pattern Updated from Carol Lyles Shaw

I just uploaded an update for the Fibonacci Quilt #1 Pattern on my Etsy shop.

Here’s the original quilt:

Modern Quilt Pattern

And here’s a mock up of a new layout with some variations!   The pattern addendum  includes info on fabric requirements for the new quilt size. You can customize this quilt to suit your interests–and your fabric stash.

Modern Quilt Pattern

This variation has a mix of improvisational blocks and a very scrappy look.

You can modify or improvise the individual patches in each block. Here’s a version that has variations in the blocks and an outside border.I even included ...

Craftsy Pattern Purchase Update from Carol Lyles Shaw

Hello Quilt Friends,

I wanted to alert you that Craftsy is rebranding to BluPrint as of January 8, 2019.  I thought I would make sure you knew that in case you downloaded one or more of my patterns from Craftsy in 2018. 

I highly suggest that you make sure you have downloaded all of your patterns (from any designer) to your own computer.  That way, you will be sure to have access to your pattern purchases in the future.

WHERE TO BUY MY PATTERNS AND BOOKS

Also, I wanted to let you know that my current and new patterns will ...

QuiltCon 2019 Acceptances from Carol Lyles Shaw

Yesterday was a busy day on Instagram.  And although I signed off for the holidays, I will have to do one more post.  The Modern Quilt Guild sent out the decision emails for QuiltCon 2019.

I am quietly celebrating three acceptances.

MidCentury Modern Curve #1.  I KNOW that I’ve been promising a pattern…and I am seriously delayed on this one.  However, in the meantime, I’m scheduled to teach this workshop in 2019.  Contact me if your guild is interested in booking this workshop in 2019 (a few dates are open) and 2020.

Island Batik Modern Pattern Play from Carol Lyles Shaw

This month, the Island Batik challenge was secondary pattern play.  So, of course, I made it Island Batik Modern Pattern Play!

I returned to one of my favorite techniques–improvisational curved blocks that I call Parisian Curves. (Pattern and detailed tutorial is in my book, Madly Modern Quilts available online and at local quilt shops).  This post is a tutorial showing one way that I approach improvisational design. It’s an improvisational design process that I teach in my workshops to help students move away from the layout that I provide.

Parisian Curves Modern Batik Quilt from Carol Lyles Shaw

Hello everyone,  My explorations as an Island Batik Ambassador continues and wow, I had fun this month!

The Island Batik challenge for June was to make a modern batik quilt. Of course, this was music to my ears!

I decided to make a modern batik quilt using the Parisian Curves technique from my book, Madly Modern Quilts, available at local quilt shops, bookstores and online. Parisian Curves is also one of my most popular workshops–even very traditional quilters have a lot of fun learning to piece these improvisational curves.  If you have the book, you’ll find the process ...

Sashing cut................ from Exuberant Color

I had a busy day yesterday so I only got the sashing cut.  I put a few strips up around the top left block to see how it is going to look with the spacing.  Hopefully I will be able to make a decision on the corner squares today.

I hung this quilt on a backdrop stand so my niece could take a photo of it.  I decided to take one too since most others that I have of it are too dark.  This was taken with natural light from an east picture window.  I have shown it and its ...
