5 DAYS OF PAMPERED QUILTING
Check your calendars, because Jackie Kunkel and Eileen Urbanek are teaming up to teach all four of Quiltworx.com’s Technique of the Month Patterns at one of the most beautiful quilting venues in the country!
An instructional workshop with Jackie and Eileen is an experience that no quilter should miss. Not only will you receive an intimate teaching experience with two quilters that live, breath, and love the quilting industry, you’ll also receive some of the highest quality and experienced instruction in the industry. Quiltworx.com Certified Instructors are specially trained over a 2 year period by Judy to share her quilting tips and techniques at the thousands of Quiltworx.com teaching events across the country each year. Instructors attend regular continuing education workshops and are experts on how these patterns are designed, written, and created. In the last 4 months combined, Jackie and Eileen have taught a total of 80 days, reaching over 450 students, primarily in the southwestern United States. We are excited to bring these talented instructors to the upper mid-west!
Madeline Island: A Quilter’s Retreat Destination that Shines
Combining this level of quilting experience with a retreat center that specializes in your comfort and fulfilling your every need, will leave you hoping this retreat never ends! Madeline Island has truly created a retreat experience that should fall on any quilter’s bucket list. Located on a picturesque Island in Lake Superior, it is quiet, peaceful, beautiful, and comfortable. The staff is there to pamper you, the food is well thought out, the venue leaves you feeling like you just spent a week making memories on the family farm, and the friendships are long-lasting.
An unlimited cookie jar and beverage station is available in the quilting room, which receives lots of natural light and has top notch quilting station accommodations. Every student has an individual table, sewing machines are available (even the machines are ones recommended by Judy!) or bring your own, and enough pressing stations, cutting stations, and hanging walls are available to support up to 60 quilters. With a much smaller class size than that, you will have plenty of space to spread out and stay focused on completing your project. The sleeping rooms and accommodations are comfortable, private, and easily accessible.
The projects for the workshop will leave you with an heirloom quilt that everyone will adore. The Quiltworx.com Technique of the Month patterns are designed to teach students all aspects of sewing a Quiltworx.com top in an extended workshop. You will learn nearly every technique Judy uses in her patterns during this workshop, which you can then take home and quickly pick up and complete your next quilt pattern from Quiltworx.com. These designs have become classics in the quilting industry and all of them are in the Top 10 Quilt Patterns of all time for Quiltworx.com. These are the perfect projects for your Quiltworx-centric getaway, allowing you to leave with the knowledge you need to not only finish the quilt project you started, but to continue on and expand your portfolio in the future.
Please join us 06/05/17 to 06/09/17!
We hope you join us for this event. It is not often to have two Instructors of this caliber instructing in an intimate classroom, paired with a venue dedicated to your every whim in a unique location such as Madeline Island.

Hot off the press!
We’re really excited to kick off the new year with two more NEW patterns made using our newest fabric lines Forever & Rosé which were designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures.
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 which was launched last fall! Quiltster is 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).
The Harboured Lighthouse pattern is part of the Congo Star Mixer Series, which was designed to bring a new look to a pattern that Quiltworx has sold for years called the Amazon Star. The Harboured Lighthouse uses a similar layout, slightly smaller than the original. In addition, it incorporates a series of units meant to portray the beam from a lighthouse. This pattern incorporates all of Quiltworx’s latest techniques as well. It is a breeze to put together, easy to modify, and can also be colored in Quiltster before you create the final project!
To be truly unique, there are other block designs available that match the size of those used in Harboured Lighthouse. If you want to experiment and mix and match the pieces included here with those from other designs, Quiltster is the perfect tool for you to make a quilt completely your own. Just open the Congo Star Mixer Template in Quiltster and get started!
To top it all off, there’s also a beautiful digitized quilting design available for this pattern.
Shattered Ruby was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer as part of the Sunrise Mixer series. It includes three distinct groups to create an 80” x 80” quilt.
A circular center sits in the middle of the quilt with a diameter of 62”. A 4” wide ring surrounds the center for a total increased diameter of 70”. Then, a border is added to square the quilt off at 80”.
The pattern teaches many of Judy’s latest techniques for paper piecing and is fully compatible with Quiltster, meaning that you can find the layout in Quiltster and work with the program to develop your own colorway if you like. The A, B, and C groups can also be mixed and matched with other group designs in the Sunrise Mixer series to make a quilt that is truly unique to you!
Do you have an award winning quilt?
The new Award Winning Quilts Album is up on Facebook! Congratulations to the winners! If you have an award winning quilt made from a pattern designed by Quiltworx.com, send a picture to Ilyse@quiltworx.com and we will award you a $10.00 gift certificate when the publish our next newsletter!
Our last retreat at Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) was so well received, that we’re doing it again!
Get ready to embark on a Quiltworx Special Event that is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Madeline Island School of the Arts, ranking among the top five art and craft schools in the country, provides exceptional workshops, renowned instructors, and superior on-site accommodations all in a unique island setting.

Also, Quilters Quest, a Quiltworx.com Certified Shop, will be returning as our on-site vendor with fabric kits, patterns, notions, tools, and general support for the project.
We’ll be introducing a NEW mixer pattern where you can use Quiltster to custom design your own quilt with a special layout only our Quiltworx University students at Madeline Island will have access to! The project will be announced in March of 2018, and will be available in both a wall and queen size.
There will be trunk shows and color workshops in the evenings, and plenty of time for free-sew or personalized attention with Judy and her instructors. You can also get feedback on projects brought from home!
Three delicious meals will be provided each day, plus unlimited refreshments, and snacks. The crew at MISA makes sure their famous bottomless chocolate chip cookies jars stay filled too!
The results will be stunning and unique! Just check out some of the finished quilts from last year! Click the thumbnails to enlarge. Also note the last two are Facebook videos created by Jeanette Walton showing work in progress for many of the finished quilts shown below. The first video is from day one of the retreat, and the second video is from day four.
With over three-quarters of our students returning from last time and a smaller group size, there are only a few spaces left! So don’t delay! A 25% deposit is all you need to hold your space in this retreat. We hope you can join us for this new and fun experience! Click here for more information and to register.
