Red River Star
New Quiltworx.com Fabric Collections Shipping in December!
The Forever collection features 30 cotton prints including six white, six red, four red & white, four black, four grey, four black & white, and two striped fabrics. Naming this collection was such a challenge. In the end, we selected: Forever. Red & white (and black & white) are classic color palettes that will be sought after Forever. Quite simply put, your quilts, made in this collection, will carry that elegance, grace, and whimsy that will leave them loved, Forever. We are thankful to Timeless Treasures for the once in a lifetime opportunity to see Judy’s quilts fabulously redesigned in red and white.
The Rosé collection includes 20 Tonga Batiks from Timeless Treasures, designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer in red, black, antique beige and white. Many of the designs incorporate elements of some of Judy’s most popular designs such as Diamond Wedding Ring, the Wedding Star, the Tea Time Placemat leaves, the Feathered Snowflake, and even an adaptation of the hummingbird print that was included in Judy and Judel Niemeyer’s Wildflowers fabric collection, released in the Fall of 2015. The collection name, Rosé, was inspired by the wonderful wine, which embodies the best of a fabulous red and fabulous white.

Are you ready for Madeline Island!?
We are! In preparation for your trip, we’re resending the Retreat Supply List and Retreat Schedule for reference below. We can’t wait to see you!
Retreat Supply List
You’ll need to bring the following items with you to class:
Each Room will have (4) Pressing and at least (2) Cutting Stations. Madeline Island has done a great job assuring that power requirements are available for the machines and ironing stations, along with everything that is needed to keep us all *on the grid*. You will be sharing the pressing and cutting stations with 32 students. Much of the cutting you will be doing can be done at your own station and there is enough space on each 4 foot table for your machine and a cutting space. There is also some available wattage for you to have lights and irons at your space. But, PLEASE adhere to the following guidelines below.
OPTIONAL: You are also able to bring a small iron (less than 40 Watts, please. Anything greater will not be allowed), to press seams while at your seat.
Some options might be:
In addition, some students like extra light. LED Lighting Kits for Sewing Machines are allowable, but please do not bring magnifying glass combos. Some of those shown below might give you an idea of options that seem to work well in Retreats at Quiltworx. Since we will be providing machines however, please do not bring one that needs to permanently attach to your machine unless you plan on taking it home with you!
We’ve changed a few details in the schedule and would like you to review this information for arrival time, special programs and events, and check-out information!
Sunday, September 25th:
Note: The sewing studio has (2) rooms, each with (30) students. Every station has its own 4 foot table, and, each room is outfitted with (4) ironing and pressing stations. You will not be able to have an iron at your own personal station, but with your own personal table, you will have some space to complete much of your trimming needed during the paper piecing process in your quilt.
Don’t forget, you are invited to arrive to a station that has already been set up with a sewing machine (so there’s no need to haul your own). These complimentary machines are provided from Bernina and Quilters Quest, your exclusive Certified Shop on the island!
Staff from Quilters Quest will be on hand throughout the week to help you learn about your machines and will provide some excellent workshop specials for those of you that may be in the market for machines! The prices are so good, Judy is buying several of the machines for her training center and retreat house in Montana!
Friday, September 30th, 4:00 p.m.: Official Check-out
WE’LL SEE YOU THERE!
|Wrapped in Ribbon was designed by Quiltworx.com in 2016 as an optional color and block layout for one of our most popular table runner patterns known as the Cactus Flower Table Runner. A Tonga Batik collection called Copper by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures was the inspiration for the samples shown above.|
Wedding Star Table Toppers
|The Wedding Star Table Topper pattern is Judy’s original Wedding Star design downsized to a 2 ring by 2 ring layout. The small size makes this pattern a great teaching tool because it’s affordable to kit and students enjoy small projects that allow them to get their feet wet without the commitment to a large project.|
|With the Lily Pond Hosta Queen Mixer, Quiltworx marks the launch of a series of patterns using new units designed to fit the original Fire Island Hosta Queen layout. Using Quiltster, we designed the color layout for this quilt using a collection of batiks from our Peacock Collection designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures.|
Lakeshore Hosta Queen Mixer
|Lakeshore Hosta Queen Mixer, another mixer pattern that uses alternate units that fit the Fire Island Hosta Queen pattern layout. This sample uses a collection of fabrics from our Peacock and Copper Collections.|
|This new take on our Feathered Snowflake features fabric selections from Elizabeth Phillips and Anne Hall using a special release collection of Christmas batiks from Island Batik. The pattern now incorporates all of the latest techniques from Quiltworx and is assembled in a straightforward approach, creating (8) wedges of an octagon, then assembling those together.|
Broken Daisy Placemats
|One of Judy’s newest designs, the Broken Daisy Placemats pattern is a quick and fun paper piecing project that’s easy to do, and easy to kit.|
