In an effort to bring the skills and techniques of paper piecing our patterns to you and your local quilt shops, we strive to train gifted quilters from around the world who can in turn, come and teach in a quilt shop or guild near you! Now, with over 90 Certified Instructors (CIs) world-wide, it’s easier than ever to find someone near you!

Cheryl Martel

Somerset, MA

Cheryl has been quilting for about 35 years, and her quilting journey began with her love for sewing and creating.

Seven years ago she saw a Bali Wedding Star hanging in my local quilt shop and decided she wanted to do that quilt. She jumped right in with a 104” x 104” Bali and was hooked.

From there she moved on to the Glacier Star and then the Fire Island Hosta. She kept taking classes and even came to Montana to do the rainbow color way for Mariner’s Compass. 

Cheryl decided since she was already teaching quilting, she wanted to add paper piecing to her portfolio, and it has become her passion. There is no better feeling than to hear your students tell you they love Judy’s method and want to take more classes. 

Judy’s patterns are so pretty and now with the mixers you can design your own quilt. The sky is the limit to what you can do.

 
 

Karen Bryant

Livonia, NY

Karen started quilting in 2004 and really enjoys using fabric to create warm and comforting quilts. She especially likes hand appliqué and paper piecing.

In 2013, her favorite quilt shop started offering classes featuring Judy Niemeyer patterns, and she fell in love with the designs.

Since then, she has made more than 20 of Judy’s quilts. In 2014, she started teaching at the shop, and enjoys helping her students develop proficiency with the techniques.

It is exciting to see the beautiful creations which are produced by the quilters in her classes!

 
 

Michele Rondot

Calgary, AB

Michele’s first experience with a Judy Niemeyer quilt was the ‘Bali Wedding Star’. Without any

guidance from a CI, it was a “hard slog, indeed”. Then she had an opportunity to meet Judy in person and with a much clearer understanding of Judy’s techniques, she was hooked.

With over 35 “Judy” quilts made, she then started to share her passion by teaching other quilters.

The organization, the step by step processes, the very logical approach all outlined in Judy’s patterns make these techniques suitable for one and all. Michele fully believes that when an investment in fabric and pattern is made with the hopes of creating a Quiltworx quilt, you deserve having a certified teacher by your side to support and guide your journey.

 
 

Sue Alexander

Fernly, NV

Sue, the owner of Certified Shop, A Stitch of Country, was introduced to the Judy Niemeyer paper piecing technique after seeing a pattern in a quilting magazine that she “just had to make!”, and fell in love with the technical and intricate aspect of the Quiltworx’s patterns.

Sue has a passion and eye for selecting colors. Sue is able to design quilts using Quiltster to assist and accommodate her customers’ visions. Since becoming a certified shop, she has furthered her interest by teaching paper piecing classes.

Sue found she had a talent in teaching these methods and wanted to share her enthusiasm with others by becoming a Certified Instructor.

Sue now has the distinction of being dual certified!

Cappuccino a Party for 4

Table Runner: 14″x40″ • Placemats: 14″x20″ • Fabrics: Tonga Sunset Strip Set by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Cappuccino a Party for 4

The Cappuccino: A Party for 4 Placemats shown on the cover is our latest update to a very popular pattern designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer several years ago. The pattern teaches a simple concept using two strips of fabric to create one appealing block design. This quilt was designed as a fun and fast quilt for all skill levels of quilters and is very fast to complete.

Fire Island Hosta Queen

100″x100″ • Fabrics: Mandarin Grove & Wallflowers Collections,Garnet &

Montana Sapphire Mini Collections by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Cosmos

Fire Island Hosta Queen, one of our most popular patterns among quilters, has had a face-lift with fabrics from our newest fabric collections. Don’t forget, this pattern is part of the Hosta Queen Mixer series, which means if you have a subscription to Quiltster, you can switch up the blocks and try out your favorite fabrics to create your own unique Hosta Queen quilt, complete with a detailed yardage chart!

Prairie Star

85″x85″ • Fabrics: Mandarin Grove and Wallflowers Collections by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures

Midnight Safari

The Prairie Star pattern is a Quiltworx classic, now on it’s second update since inception. The latest version has some differences and is not compatible with previous versions. The size has changed just slightly, but the changes have mostly come from updates to piecing techniques, providing units that have more color options, and eliminating the use of Y-seams for final assembly.

Rain Forest Blossoms

68″x68″ • Fabrics: Mandarin Grove & Wallflowers Collections by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Prismatic Star

The Rain Forest Blossoms is constructed using 2 distinct groups, comprised of (8) Center Diamonds in a Group A, and border blocks that result in an 68” Square quilt as Group B.

Rustic Mountain Snowflake

20″ Round• Fabrics: Montana Sapphire Mini Collection by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Prismatic Star

Featured in the April edition of American Patchwork & Quilting, the Rustic Mountain Snowflake seasonal table topper (or place mat) was designed to introduce quilters to paper piecing. While the magazine comes with the pattern and papers for 1 table topper, you can order the set of 4 on our website or your favorite quilt shop for a limited time.

Sundial

68″x68″ • Fabrics: Sunset Strip Set and Wallflowers Collections by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Sundial

Sundial is a wonderful project for beginner, intermediate and advanced students, with all straight-lined foundation strip piecing, and some very gradually curved piecing required for final assembly. It is compatible with Quiltworx 48-piece 2-1/2” strip sets and can also be expanded using Quiltworx On-Point Expansion packages (listed on under Related Products on the pattern page), which would bring this design to 99” square.

Several NEW Digital Quilt Designs – Now Available!

We’re pleased to present the newest additions to our digital quilting library. If you’re looking for rich, beautiful, heirloom-quality designs that fit our latest patterns perfectly, they’ve arrived! 

Most can be purchased as a complete package or in individual units, and are compatible with most commercial machines that can read quilting design files. Refer to the QUILT DESIGN web pages below for details.

Please note, spaces that are shown as blank in the design were quilted using line work following the shape of the units and pieces in the blocks. This type of quilting approach is typically easier to accomplish and place without a digitized option. It is up to you how you choose to quilt these open spaces!  To see how we quilted the open spaces, click on the links below labeled “…DIGITIZED DESIGN…“, and hover over the “Alternate Views” images.

Baby Bella

36″x36″ • Fabrics: Tonga Jewels – Amethyst & Jade, and Wallflowers by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Color Spectrum

The Baby Bella was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project does take a little time and introduces quilters to several Quiltworx techniques, but all of the seams are straight, there are no Y-seams or curved seams, and the result is an adorable miniature lone star block for you to enjoy.

 

Color Spectrum

73″x85″ • Fabrics: Tonga Jewels – Amethyst & Jade, and Wallflowers by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Color Spectrum

The Color Spectrum 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.

 

Cosmos

91″x91″ • Fabrics: Hoffman Fabrics – Sparkle and Fade

Cosmos

The Cosmos foundation papers, strip piecing processes and color concept were designed by Quiltworx. The blocks in this quilt require a combination of paper piecing skills, strip piecing skills, and traditional piecing skills. Part of the Queen Star Mixer series, the diamonds used in this quilt are called the Ribbon Star, Basket Star, and the Shimmering Star. The diamonds are surrounded by a Blank Background and the fabrics are the perfect colorway to remind you of exploring the stars in your own rocket ship at warp speed.

 

Midnight Safari

99″x99″ • Fabrics: Island Batik

Midnight Safari

The Midnight Safari design was created using a series of mixer blocks from the Cattail Queen Mixer series. It includes four sections referred to as Groups A, B, C and D and these Group sizes have been standardized so that you can use interchangeable blocks in each space. The blocks selected for this quilt are named Ribbon Star, Star Shower, Barbed Wire Fence Border, and Braided Rope Queen expansion package. If you have purchased this pattern, these groups have been combined into one pattern.

 

Prismatic Star

68″x68″ • Fabrics: Prismatic Strip Set by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Prismatic Star

The Prismatic Star has been updated in 2018, making the diamond block slightly larger and creating templates for the sashing strips that reduce the number of stacked seams during assembly. While the original design has been a great pattern for Quiltworx, these improvements will make assembly easier and have enabled us to create a Queen Size Option. Please note that the size has changed, and the new pattern isn’t compatible with the old version.

 

Starry Night

A COLLECTOR’S CLUB DESIGN

68″x68″ • Fabrics: Emerald Mini Collection by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Prismatic Star

The Starry Night is a pattern for beginners, intermediate, and advanced quilters and has been designed with floating points, efficient yardage, and simple assembly steps. It can be expanded to a Queen Size quilt (99” x 99”) using one of several Quiltworx Expansion Packages. As a Collector’s Club Design, there are only 500 patterns available while supplies last.

 

Triple Divide

53″x59″ • Fabrics: Tonga Jewels – Amethyst & Jade, and Wallflowers by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Prismatic Star

Triple Divide was also designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only one paper piecing technique, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project.

Fabrics: Tonga Jewels – Amethyst & Jade by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Our latest Queen Star Mixer pattern, Succulent Jade, is made up of 48 diamonds in 3 different designs, the Ribbon Star, Shimmering Star, and the Log Cabin Star.

Queen Star Mixers Galore!

Amethyst, Blue Lagoon, Diamonds in Bloom, Ice CastlesPrismatic Star Queen, Rainbow Crystal & Succulent Jade…What do all of these patterns have in common?  They’re all created from blocks designed for the new Queen Star Mixer!

For those of you that are crazy addicted to Quiltworx patterns, have you considered the value of Mixers? With Mixers, you can DEFINITELY save money over all. Say you bought all 5 patterns in the Sunrise Mixer series (Allisyn’s Wondered Land, Shattered Ruby, Sunsations Magnolia, Lakeshore Sunrise, and Butterfly Garden) the patterns would cost a total of $290. However, if you buy all the mixers, plus one Instruction Intro that works with all of them, the cost is only $245!

That saves $45 for those of you that collect patterns, which is nearly 50% of your Quiltster account cost each year. And, your collection still includes everything you need to make ALL 5 patterns. Plus, you can mix and match and create something that no one else has, and you can see what your quilt looks like in advance. You can see where Quiltster and Mixers can really give our valued customers, like you, more flexibility and more control, and the ability to BE UNIQUE!

These patterns are now available for purchase on our website, and the fabric lines are available in a quilt shop near you!  There will also be digitized quilting designs available in the near future.

Many of these patterns are also being prepared for the Quiltster App!  If you’ve never heard of Quiltster, it’s an incredible fabric auditioning software that allows you to pick and choose fabrics before you spend money.  Look for the Quiltster Compatible logo on the patterns below, and click the quilt images or links to learn more about each pattern, find replacement papers, see samples made by Quiltworx.com and others, find kitting information, and purchase the pattern!

Wholesale purchases are available to those approved with a wholesale account. Visit our wholesale page to order (minimum purchase of 3 and advance approval of wholesale account is required).


Solar Flares
72″ x 72″ • Fabrics: Quiltworx Prismatic Strip Set by
Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Solar Flares is a Quiltworx favorite now in a new colorway designed to create a scrappy look using 2-1/2″ strips from the Prismatic Strip Set, a collection of 48 fabrics sorted into 6 groups of 8 fabrics ranging from light to dark colors.


Summer Solstice
60″ x 60″ • Fabric:  Tonga Jewels – Amethyst by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Having run out of papers for this pattern, Summer Solstice has been revamped to a size that’s compatible with other mixer blocks currently available in Quiltster.  We’ve removed the Y-seams, and floated several points that were previously challenging to keep perfect and have also updated the technique for the lone star block to current technique standards.  Please note that this pattern is not compatible with the previous version.


Bali Wedding Star
80″ x 80″ •
Fabrics: Quiltworx Prismatic & Gypsy Strip Sets by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

The latest version of our very popular Bali Wedding Star has been refreshed using 2 of our newest strip sets, Prismatic and Gypsy, and the instructions have been updated to offer two layout options.  The Rainbow Garden layout option is pictured on the cover sheet and quilt sample, but we’ve kept instructions for the more random layout option too!


Kaleidoscope
68″ x 68″ • 
Fabric: Tonga Jewels – Amethyst by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Part of the Kaleidoscope Wall Hanging Mixer, Kaleidoscope was designed using 24 diamonds including the Basket Star and Woven Star blocks.  We love these mixer patterns because their easily expandable to 80″x80″ or even 99″x99″ with compatible border mixers to suit your fancy.


Rainbow Crystal
91″ x 91″ • 
Fabrics: Quiltworx Prismatic Strip Set by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Rainbow Crystal is a great pattern for the beginner to intermediate quilter because there are no Y-seams or curved piecing.


Blue Lagoon
91″ x 91″ • 
Fabric:  Tonga Jewels – Jade by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Created from the Queen Star Mixer, Blue Lagoon is inspired by tropical waters, and bright colorful fish.  It’s created from 48 diamonds in four different layouts including: the Ribbon Star, Razor Star, the 16-Colored Diamond, and the Blank Diamond.  The diamonds are surrounded by the Spiked Ring Background which really makes a splash (pun intended).  

Have You Seen Our Mixers?

For those of you that are crazy addicted to Quiltworx patterns, have you considered the value of Mixers? With Mixers, you can DEFINITELY save money over all. Say you bought all 5 patterns in the Sunrise Mixer series (Allisyn’s Wondered Land, Shattered Ruby, Sunsations Magnolia, Lakeshore Sunrise, and Butterfly Garden) the patterns would cost a total of $290. However, if you buy all the mixers, plus one Instruction Intro that works with all of them, the cost is only $245!

That saves $45 for those of you that collect patterns, which is nearly 50% of your Quiltster account cost each year. And, your collection still includes everything you need to make ALL 5 patterns. Plus, you can mix and match and create something that no one else has, and you can see what your quilt looks like in advance. You can see where Quiltster and Mixers can really give our valued customers, like you, more flexibility and more control, and the ability to BE UNIQUE!

Two NEW Digital Quilt Designs – Now Available!


Photo by Cindi Haddick

We’re pleased to present the newest additions to our digital quilting library. If you’re looking for rich, beautiful, heirloom-quality designs that fit our latest patterns perfectly, they’ve arrived!  

Most can be purchased as a complete package or in individual units, and are compatible with most commercial machines that can read quilting design files. Refer to the QUILT DESIGN web pages below for details.

Please note, spaces that are shown as blank in the design were quilted using line work following the shape of the units and pieces in the blocks.  This type of quilting approach is typically easier to accomplish and place without a digitized option.  It is up to you how you choose to quilt these open spaces!  To see how we quilted the open spaces, click on the links below labeled “QUILT DESIGN“, and hover over the “Alternate Views” images.

10% Off All Quilt Samples

Have you ever wondered what it might cost to just purchase a quilt already made by Judy and her staff, instead of making one?  Every year in May, Judy reviews her quilt inventory and selects samples that are no longer actively marketing patterns and need to find a good home! 

We’ve offered them at Quilting Retreats throughout the year and also shared them with our Certified Shops and Instructors so they have an opportunity to showcase samples in their shop or add to their trunk shows. 

This year, we are offering a 10% sale through Memorial Day Weekend to our customers, making these samples even more affordable! We have over 25 samples available if you are looking for a special quilt to add to your collection! 

Click here for details!

See you after Spring Quilt Market!
