Quiltworx University - Williamsburg 2020 - Ready, Set, Plan Your Projects!

Hello everyone! We’re beyond excited about this upcoming retreat, and the beautiful design options Judy and Brad have created especially for you! We’re pleased to unveil your exclusive project, the Stella Maris Mixer which can be purchased for this workshop through Quiltster, and will be supplied by our partner shop at this event, Threads Run Through It.  

Quiltster Account Info

As part of your sign up, you receive 6 months of Quiltster to plan and order your project.  If you already have Quiltster, we have added a $60.00 subscription credit to your account.  If you do not have Quiltster, please sign up using the following information:

Part 1: Subscribe to Quiltster!

  1. Go to Quiltster.com/subscription
  2. Choose your plan.  The annual plan is selected by default. If you’d prefer the monthly plan, manually click the “…per month…” header.
  3. Create an account.
  4. Enter billing info and COUPON during this step.

Part 2: Email Quiltster Customer Support

  • You MUST email us at info@quiltster.com to let us know that you have subscribed so we can grant access to the Quiltworx University content.
  • You will also receive an email from Quiltster with this same information.

PLAN YOUR PROJECT!

There are three options for selecting the pattern and your fabrics:

OPTION 1:  We have selected a special combination of blocks for you to create a project using your own fabrics. In the past, we’ve used a published pattern for this option, but this year, we don’t have a pattern to use. Instead, we’ve selected a combination of blocks specifically for this purpose.

In Quiltster, you can select the Blank 57″ Square Stella Maris layout or the Blank 99″ Square Stella Maris Queen layout to color a design. If you’re planning to use your own fabrics, please choose one of these, and begin playing with your quilt.

We apologize that you only have event fabrics to choose from, and are unable to add fabrics from your stash. But, with the wide range of fabrics available, hopefully you’ll find something that reflects the fabrics you plan to use adequately.

ORDERING: In January, ordering will begin, and by ordering a BLANK version of the size you want, you’ll only receive the pattern. At this point, you’ll also receive a cutting list, line drawing and yardage charts to get you started planning your quilt.

RECEIVING YOUR PATTERN: A pattern will be sent in advance on March 1st, which will give you a few weeks to familiarize yourself with everything and complete the final preparation prior to the event.  You’ll need to cut your own kit based on the strip size suggested in the unit charts and label your pattern prior to the workshop.

OPTION 2: Select one of the Stella Maris Mixer kits, exclusive to this event!  There are 21 options that have been created for you to choose from. You will have a Quiltster account for six months (from sign up) as part of your event and will need to use it to purchase your project if you choose one of these options. 

We have not finalized all kit pricing at this time, but to give you an idea, your kit will include the following:

  • A pattern, ranging from $32.50 to $80, depending on the size and number of papers required.    
  • A kit with fabrics included, pre-cut for you to the strip size, (Small patterns will range from $175, with larger designs being as much as $400). 
  • A 17% kit cutting fee will be included so the shop and Quiltworx staff can prepare your kit for the workshop.

OPTION 3:  Create your own completely customized quilt, where you pick the combination of blocks for your quilt and your favorite fabric collections from the list shown below! If you haven’t received it already, any day (or upon sign-up!) you’ll receive a 6 month subscription to Quiltster, allowing you the opportunity to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 4 different quilt sizes to achieve your perfectly unique quilt!  You may use Quiltster, or contact Judel Niemeyer for an additional design fee ($25/design) to help you create your perfect quilt.

Again, we have not finalized kit pricing at this time, but the range will be similar to that noted above and depend on the selection of blocks and fabrics for your pattern.

All kits will be based on a yardage price of $12.99 per yard, regular price, however, kits purchased for this event will be discounted at 10%! If you are interested in backing and binding, you will have the option to purchase this at the time of kit purchase. Backing and binding purchased with the kit will be discounted 25%. All sales will be subject to applicable sales tax in the state of Virginia. Kit orders will not be placed until January 2020, when we finalize yardage, so have fun designing in the meantime and stay tuned for more information on kit purchases.

Stella Maris Pattern

57×57 or 99×99 • COMING FALL 2020

Choose your own fabrics and prepare your own kit using the blocks shown here. Papers will be sent on March 1st and some preliminary yardage and kitting information will be provided once you order your design through Quiltster. Ordering will open in January.

Feathered Star

Stella Maris Mixer Kits

If choosing blocks and fabrics seems overwhelming, we’re also offering the following exclusive fabric kits only available to event attendees.

If you select this option, we’ll cut the kit, and prepare it for the class. We’ll bring the kits to the workshop for you so there is no preparation needed! 

To order these options, you’ll need to find the one you want in Quiltster (click on Quiltworx University: Williamsburg 2020 from your Dashboard to get started). Once you have opened the desired project and given it a name, save to your account.

When kits are ready to be purchased (we’ll send an email with this announcement on January 1st, 2020), then you can click the Buy Now button and it will walk you through the order submission process. All you need to do from there is show up at the event!

Create your own completely customized quilt, by selecting a quilt size and blocks for each section of the quilt shown below along with new fabrics from over 17 collections!

There are two ways to do this:

  1. Use Quiltster!  Prior to this event, you’ll receive a 6 month subscription to Quiltster (as part of the fee for attending the event), allowing you the opportunity to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 4 different quilt sizes and 6 different layouts to achieve your perfectly unique quilt!  
  2. We’ll Design it With You!  For an additional design fee you can work one on one with Judel Niemeyer as she uses Quiltster to mix and match blocks and fabrics to create your one of a kind quilt. You’ll have final approval before your quilt is kitted.

Whether you use Quiltster on your own, or have us do it, your finalized quilt kit will be prepared for you and brought to the event for you to complete! No preparation on your end will be needed!

BLOCK AND FABRIC OPTIONS

Your options for blocks and fabrics are shown below. If you have any questions about how to use Quiltster, we strongly encourage you to visit the Quiltster Youtube Channel and watch some tutorials before you get started.

Here’s a valuable video (not directly related to this project, but related to the Quiltworx University Planning process) which gives you a great walk-through of how the program works. Click the image below.
