Sea Holly
65″ x 65″ • Fabric: Bohemian Blues Collection

Part of our Hosta Mixer Collection, the Sea Holly layout includes 5 distinct groups to create a 65” x 65” quilt. The components include a Leaf Center, a Leaf Border, a Clamshell Background, a Clamshell Border, and Background. The pattern was designed by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer from Quiltworx.com.

Moroccan Courtyard
72″ x 93″ • Fabric:  Gypsy Strip Set

The Moroccan Courtyard was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only one foundation block, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project. It is meant to make those new to the process find confidence, understanding, and success.

The cover quilt uses 2-1/2″ strip sets in packages of 48, called Quiltworx Strip Sets, manufactured by Timeless Treasures. These strips are designed, pre-selected, and pre-sorted by Judy and Judel Niemeyer into (6) color groups of (8) fabrics ranging from light to dark.

Play with this project in Quiltster to explore variations on the strip layout in each block. With the different strip layout options, there are literally hundreds of ways to create dazzling effects with this quilt!​

Licorice Rope
67″ x 67″  • Fabric:  Kaffe Fassett for Free Spirit

Licorice Rope is another pattern designed for the beginning quilter or anyone who wants a fun quick project.  It too uses only one foundation block, has simple cutting techniques, and is a very affordable way to jump into paper piecing.  It’s also easy to get extra foundation papers to expand the size of the quilt.

Tarnished Windmill 2018
60″ x 60″  • Fabric:  Jungle & Wallflower Mini Collections

The Tarnished Windmill is a Quiltworx favorite that has recently been redone so that the blocks used in this design can be used with others we’ve created using Quiltster. We also have replaced the coversheet using current Batik Collections designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer from Timeless Treasures. The new version is the same size as the original publication, but Unit names have been changed and papers have been updated so that any section of this quilt can be quickly and easily mixed and matched with units designed for many of our other publications to create unique projects.

The star was designed using 3” strips for the strip piecing. It incorporates a paper pieced 10″ windmill block and the general assembly process was designed with no Y-seams. It uses yardage very efficiently at just over 7 yards of fabric for the top!
