Here's what's new at Quiltworx for December 2019.

Happy New Year everyone! We’ve started off the year with some really fun quilting projects, and hope some of these new publications will end up on your quilting bucket list! In the recent weeks, we’ve put the finishing touches on seven new patterns now available on our website. Their fabric lines are (or will be) available in a quilt shop near you!

Our new patterns are also available in the Quiltster App, and we’re adding old patterns as we can, too! 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 Marketplace and/or Project buttons on the patterns below to access Quiltster layouts if you already have an account with Quiltster.

The Marketplace button allows you to audition fabrics and layouts available from participating vendors, and purchase a kit. The original Quiltster Project, allows you to audition fabrics from your own stash along with thousands of other fabrics from across the industry providing you with an accurate representation of your quilt along with the yardage requirements.

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!

Lakeshore Sunrise

by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Lakeshore Sunrise

An old favorite in a new colorway using fabrics from our newest mini collection Cortez. Lakeshore Sunrise is part of our Sunrise Mixer series, which means alternate blocks and fabrics can be auditioned if you have a subscription to Quiltster.

The exploded Lone Star blocks are created using a sewing technique designed by Judy using 2 1/2″ strips sewn to Foundation Sheets, which are then cut apart and rearranged into the diamond star points. Lone Star blocks have never been so easy!

Both designs are perfect for learning the paper piecing techniques needed for many of our lone star projects.

Fire Island Hosta

74″ x 74″ • Fabrics: Desert Rose Collection by Judy and Judel Niemeyer

with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Fire island Hosta

Arguably one of our more popular Quiltworx patterns, we’ve freshened the look with our newest fall cotton fabric line, Desert Rose, from Timeless Treasures. Students new to quilting and paper piecing have successfully completed this beautiful pattern, so it’s great for both beginner and experienced quilters.

True story…this pattern was even the inspiration for a birthday cake design for a “Judy” fan. There is a picture!

Quiltster Template

Licorice Rope

Square: 67″x67″ • Fabrics: Rainbow Sherbet Collection by CI Kelly Grant with Batik Textiles

Licorice Rope

The Licorice Rope 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. This version by CI Kelly Grant is pure eye candy!

Quiltster Template

Sedona

Square: 85″x85″ • Fabrics: Sandstone Mini and Wallflowers Collections by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Licorice Rope

This new limited edition Collector’s Club Pattern is now available while supplies last! Sedona uses blocks designed for Groups A, B & C of the Meadow Star Mixer and finishes to a size of 85″ x 85″. This quilt sample was made with our Sandstone Mini Collection from Timeless Treasures, but can be made with any of our past and future mini collections as well, to create a completely different look!

Sedona is also available in Quiltster, so you can mix and match blocks for Groups A, B, & C, as well as audition fabrics!

Quiltster Template

Starbaby

Square: 32″x32″ • Fabrics: Cortez Mini and Wallflowers Collections by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Starbaby

This darling pattern comes with enough papers to make 2 samples! It’s 32″x32″ with an optional border to make a 40″x40″ quilt. If you’re interested in a really quick but adorable project, Starbaby can be completed in just a few hours. It was designed to showcase the basic paper piecing techniques that can be applied to many of our other lone star projects.

We will also have a larger pattern called the Goodnight Star coming soon. It showcases the same star block repeated over and over using a variety of color options that come together in a 96″x96″ quilt.

Introducing the Meadow Star Mixer!

Introducing the Meadow Star Mixer!

If you attended Quiltworx University in Tucson, AZ, you may recognize some of your own beautiful projects above, and now we’re releasing the Meadow Star Mixer blocks to the world! There are a few that will be publishing over the next two months still, but many are available now for you to work with.

To get the most out of our Mixer patterns, we suggest a subscription to Quiltster, which allows you to dynamically switch blocks in and out, as well as audition fabrics for your quilt before you ever purchase a pattern or fabrics.

Begin designing your Meadow Star Mixer by selecting a quilt size (there are five to choose from), and then start selecting from the dozens of block designs available in each group. By the time you’re done choosing blocks and auditioning fabrics, you’ll end up with a quilt that is totally unique to you!

Click on the images below to see all of the blocks available for each size of quilt.

Our new patterns are all available in the Quiltster App, and we’re adding old patterns as we can too! 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!

Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt

62″ Diameter • Fabrics: Hoffman 2018 Fall Batiks

(Not compatible with the previous version)

Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt

You’ve asked, and we listened! Originally published in 2008, quilters have often asked for a way to enlarge and square up Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt. To make that happen, we’ve increased the size to 62″ round, making it compatible with the B & C Groups of the Sunrise Mixer. This allows you to expand the quilt to 70″ round, and even square it up to be an 80″x80″ quilt. We’ve also re-written the instructions updating techniques to include Smart Corners, TRP Lines, and yardage options for several color concepts.

Here’s how it enlarging this pattern works. The Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt pattern fits into Group A of the Sunrise Mixer (62″ round).

Sunrise Mixer Introduction Booklet

You can add the purchase of the Sunrise Mixer Introduction booklet, along with your choice of 4 blocks from Group B (70″ round), and even square it up with your choice of 5 blocks from Group C (80″x80″).

GROUP B OPTIONS

Enlarge the diameter to 70″

Flying Geese Ring
Sawtooth Ring
Crown Ring
Chevron Ring

GROUP C OPTIONS

Square it up to an 80″x80″ quilt

Sunrise Blank Border
Sunrise Radiant Border
Sunrise NYB Border
Radiant Waves Border
Radiant Chevron Border
 

Irish Thistle

Square: 57″x57″ • Fabrics: Titanium Mini Collection

by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Irish Thistle

Irish Thistle is a Collector’s Club Pattern designed to showcase our mini collection fabrics. There are only 500 patterns available, and will be sold first come first served.

The blocks chosen for Irish Thistle are from Group A and B of our soon to be published Courtyard Fountain Mixer. This mixer series will allow you to enlarge this quilt to either 68×68, 77×77, or 99×99, as well as mix and match block designs within each group.

Kentucky Spirits

99″x99″ • Fabrics: Gunpowder, Wallflowers Collections by

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders

Kentucky Spirits

Kentucky Spirits (pieced and quilted by Certified Instructor Jenny Clark) was created from our Meadow Star Queen Medallion Mixer blocks, which means there are other blocks of the same size that can be substituted to create a unique quilt by using Quiltster. With the colors of Mint Juleps and Churchill Downs, we think this quilt captures the spirit of the Kentucky Derby.

by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Seasonal Gatherings Table Toppers

Seasonal Gatherings Table Topper is an updated arrangement on one of our most popular patterns the Seasonal Table Runner. This is a fun new colorway that utilizes the same instructions as the previous version. It’s a considered a fun quick project for any skill level.

Julie Faulkner said on Facebook, “Seasonal Gatherings Table Topper – love this quick weekend project that I just did over the last couple of days! After making a lot of larger projects recently I’m enjoying making some of the new smaller projects that Quiltworx has just released!

 

Seasonal Table Runner

by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Zen Garden

One of our customer favorites, here’s a new colorway for our Seasonal Table Runner. It has the same instructions and papers as the previous version, but has been updated with new fabrics. This small project is so fun to make our customers make them for every season and occasion.

Gwyn E Campbell, posted on Facebook, “I really enjoyed Seasonal Table Runner. The various units come together so nicely; no curved piecing during that assembly stage.

 

Vintage Compass

by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures

Vintage Compass

Our customers agree that the Vintage Compass pattern is both fun to make AND quilt! Judy’s paper piecing techniques make sewing the quilt top an addictive process, and all of that open space around the compass is a quilter’s dream.

Cathy Lawrence Moore posted, “This was my first Judy Niemeyer quilt. I am hooked!”

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.

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!
