Ribbons and Bows Wedding Ring

54″x68″ • Fabrics: Natural Beauty by Amy Butler with Free Spirit

Ribbons and Bows

The Ribbons and Bows pattern was created in 2018 as a smaller version of Grandma’s Wedding Ring. The quilt uses a wedding ring assembly technique that requires construction in horizontal rows, instead of diagonal rows. In addition to an alternative assembly technique, this pattern also includes instructions for assembly of the center block as a 4-Patch instead of a block cut on the diagonal or cut as a solid piece. Also, check out the Creative Grids Templates that make trimming these blocks a breeze!

Yogo Sapphire Wall

80″x80″ • Fabrics: Montana Sapphire and Wallflowers by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Yogo Sapphire Wall

Yogo Sapphire was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing and constructing an exploded star quilt layout. It is easily expandable to 99″x99″ with several different border designs by replacing Group C (pieced border) with Group D larger corner blocks. We used the Princess Tiara in this example:

Yogo Sapphire Queen

This design is also versatile because rotating the diamond blocks can create a completely new look! It’s super fun to play with the layout on the design wall or in Quiltster! Here are a few examples:

Rotation 1
Rotation 2
Rotation 3
Rotation 4

Hallo, I’m Wiwik from Bekasi, Indonesia.

I’ve always thought I’m a bit crafty since young age ;), so when I quit my job and my mom taught me sampler blocks in late ‘90s, I was immediately hooked. At that time, my dad still worked with an American oil company in Sumatera. Some of the expat (American) ladies taught P&Q to the employee wives including my mom.

I picked up more by learning from P&Q magazines & books, and the internet. Paper piecing was one of the techniques I learned and tried by myself (intrigued by those sharp edges) but quickly abandoned because I found it a bit bothersome.

But Judy’s techniques changed my opinion about machine paper piecing. I took a class here in Jakarta with CI Siska Dart in 2015, it was a really great experience and learned a lot. I decided to pursue a qualification with Quiltworx to become Certified Instructor by joining Quiltworx workshops in Melbourne in 2016 & 2018.

I taught P&Q to others since 2006. At first I participated in teaching sewing as life skills to junior high school students and to under-privilege ladies in Bekasi (social movement), then began teaching classes, and to other cities too such as Tangerang, Jakarta, Malang, Surabaya and Singapore.

I founded my studio, Melati Patchwork, to center all my P&Q activities, gather and manage a group of enthusiastic friends/quilters (around 30 active members). And to support demand of quilting service, my mom, my sister and I taught village ladies how to hand-quilt in Garut, West Jawa.

I also have organized/participated as organizer in other events such as:

  • Quiltworx Quilts Exhibition, Halim – Jakarta, 2016, for students who completed their quilts with CI Siska Dart
  • Pameran Merah Putih/Red & White Exhibition, August 2017 at Museum Tekstil Jakarta, a week event (exhibition, classes & product bazaar) with participants from all over Indonesia, to commemorate Indonesia 72th Independence Day.
  • Exhibition at Museum Layang2 Jakarta, 2018, with Kites theme (quilts & other crafts)

My teaching area as a CI, is in Indonesia for sure, but also other countries in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippine, Brunei, Vietnam) and other Asian countries also interest me if there is opportunity to teach there.

 
Quiltworx is partnering with Honest Fabric

YOU MAY HAVE HEARD?

Quiltworx is Partnering with Honest Fabric

We’re creating ready-to-quilt fabric panels that have all the beauty of Judy’s paper pieced designs, but none of the piecing!

WHY WOULD WE DO THAT, you’ve asked?!?

We know how passionate Judy addicts are about paper piecing…we are too! But, we also realize that there are many quilters out there who have more of a passion for quilting than paper piecing. For those quilters, these quilt top fabric panels are the best of both worlds!

Not only that, but what a great learning tool, right? Quilters who would like to dip their toes into free-motion or custom quilting, can do so without the fear of ruining an expensive and time-consuming pieced top. On the other hand, if a practice run turns out better than expected, you still have a beautiful quilt instead of just a plain piece of fabric…WIN WIN!

Finally, the quality of the printed fabrics is phenomenal. Honest Fabric prints their custom quilt tops with the highest quality polyester. Every piece is completely washing machine safe, will not bleed, and will not unjustly fade. The fabric is soft to begin with, and only gets softer and more buttery with each washing, without compromising the rich, vibrant colors.

On top of all of that, Honest Fabric products are American made, and eco-friendly. We think their product compliments ours beautifully, and fulfills a niche for our business.

With that said, we’re starting with the following two designs. We’re excited to be adding to new and exciting designs soon, so keep your eyes pealed for those along with pictures of finished products we’ll be sharing on Facebook! For now, we give you…

Blooming Lily Light & Dark

HAPPY QUILTING!

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!

 
 

These instructors are available to teach classes at any quilt shop and are a resource for our Technique of the Month program. Get unmatched workshop experience by taking a class or booking them in your quilt shop today! Look for an instructor in your area here.

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.

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.

If you are new to Quiltworx Retreats, you can learn more about our venue, location, and travel needs at the following link.  Our location in Northwest Montana, adjacent to the Quiltworx Warehouse inspires creativity and excitement.  With two Certified Shops within 15 minutes of the Retreat Center, Quiltworx-inspired shopping is plentiful! 

And, with mountains and lakes out your back door, there’s plenty of extra exploring to be had.  Book an extra day and tour Glacier National Park or ski at Whitefish Mountain Resort or drive or kayak the shores of Flathead Lake!   

Attend a trunk show where Judy will show you her latest and favorite quilts in her own collection, and learn Quiltster from staff in a one on one or group setting.  

And don’t forget, we pamper you from sun up to sun down.  Your only responsibility is to sew as much as you like, with someone there to help you through every step of the way, no matter what project(s) you choose.

If you can’t make a scheduled retreat, the Quiltworx Training Center is also available for your own personal sewing get-away, any time you like!  Book a couple days with friends or even just yourself to get away from it all and sew.  Judy and instructor staff is even available for hourly bookings (3 hours a day, maximum) if you’d just like someone to help get you started each day!  For custom and nightly booking rates and options, review the website and check the calendar for openings when you’d like to come.  Then, call Quiltworx and we’ll help you book your customized stay!

If you are considering a retreat in Montana, please check out the following dates and click on the links to learn more and to sign up!  We would love to have you in 2019, which promises to be a year full of sewing surprises and endless quilting fun!  More information is under the Open Booking Information on the Retreat Center Link above.

HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!
