What's New in December!

New Patterns Hot Off the Press!

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!

We’d also like to introduce you to a new pattern designation we’re calling “Collector’s Club Designs”.  Collector’s Club patterns are projects released for a limited time to celebrate our Mini Collection fabric lines. These mini collections are comprised of 8 fabrics ranging in color from light to dark.  These patterns are available for a limited time only, showcasing the latest mini collections to create a dazzling quilt! Combined with basics and blenders from your favorite fabric vendors, these quilts create a new approach to color planning that we hope will inspire you in your quilting endeavors!  Look for references to “Collector’s Club Design” in the pattern descriptions below.  They are limited to the stock on hand!

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).

Bali Bed Runner
30″ x 104″ • Fabric: Gypsy Strip Set

The Bali Bed Runner pattern is Judy’s original Wedding Star design downsized to a 2 ring by 8 ring layout, measuring 30” x 104”. This Bed Runner will makes a great wedding gift for any modern bride. The project is small, making it affordable and easy to complete in a limited amount of time. This design has become a classic in the quilting industry and is one that continues to sell more each year than it did the year before.

This sample is shown in the 48-piece Gypsy Strip Set designed by Judy and Judel with Timeless Treasures.

Dahlia Placemats
14″ x 17″ • Fabric:  Aged to Perfection

Dahlia Placemats pattern is a super fun small project that is perfect for introducing the technique of paper piecing and curved piecing.  These samples were featured at the Trends Show last Fall, and are made from a collection of fabrics called Aged to Perfection from Maywood Studio.

Diamonds in Bloom
100″ x 100″  • Fabric:  Bohemian Blues Collection

Diamonds in Bloom is based on the Prismatic Star (published in 2014) and Prismatic Star Queen (published in 2017). It teaches a basic strip piecing process that is used with most of our star quilts and requires 2-1/2” strips. The diamond block is used in a 100” x 100” layout that requires *48) diamonds, a background, and a border. This block can be mixed and matched and rotated with other similar sized diamond blocks using an online fabric and block auditioning applications called Quiltster.

This sample was created in the Bohemian Blues Collection designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures.

Evergreen Tree Skirt
70″ Diameter  • Fabric:  Jungle Mini Collection

Evergreen Tree Skirt a Collector’s Club Design was created by Quiltworx as a limited release project to showcase the fabulous green palette we incorporated into the Jungle Mini Collection.  

The small blue example features fabrics from our Baltic Mini Collection which is made up of 8 blue fabrics sorted from light to dark.

This pattern is only available while supplies last!

Garden Wall
70″ x 83″ • Fabric:  Gypsy Strip Set

The Garden Wall Quilt layout is one of our favorites from 2013, so we’ve updated it with our newest design standards, and gave it a face-lift using our new Gypsy Strip Set Collection.  We created this layout to use Quiltworx 2-1/2” strip sets and our new Laser-cut Stitch-N-Peel Appliqué Stabilizer product called Quiltworx Impressions. 

Ice Castles
100″ x 100″ Diameter  • Fabric:  Baltic Mini Collection

The foundation papers and strip piecing processes for Ice Castles were designed by Quiltworx based in part, on blocks original designed in 2014 for the Prismatic Star. A Queen Layout was created and published due to popular demand and manipulation of the design in Quiltster led to a very well received version of the queen quilt using a fabric collection of 8 fabrics ranging from light to dark that Judy and Judel Niemeyer design for Timeless Treasures called Mini Collections. This quilt can be quickly adapted to any range of 8 fabrics from light to dark.

This is a Collector’s Club Design showcasing an 8 fabric mini collection, and is only available while supplies last!

Ice Crystals
64″ x 84″  • Fabric:  Batik Textiles

Ice Crystals is our FIRST pattern release in a new line of pattern products that we refer to as Simple Elements.  With floating units, engulfed in a sea of background fabrics, the Ice Crystals pattern is elegant, yet simple, fast, and affordable for the size of the finished quilt.  The ample background allows us to show off fabrics with fun elements and a canvas for creative quilting.

Lakeshore Hosta Queen Mixer

A special release of Lakeshore Hosta Queen is now available in our new fabric collection, Bohemian Blues!  Fabrics are shipping soon, but the pattern is ready so you can get your kits.  Only 250 patterns using this cover sheet are available, so get yours now!

Mini Stars Table Runner

Mini Stars Tablerunner pattern was designed as a tool to teach beginner level foundation paper piecing.

Prismatic Star Queen
91″ x 91″  • Fabric:  Gypsy Strip Set

The Prismatic Star Queen foundation papers and strip piecing processes were designed by Quiltworx in 2014 as part of a wall quilt layout called the Prismatic Star. The Queen Layout was created and published due to popular demand. The Prismatic Star block teaches a basic strip piecing process that is used in most of our star quilts and required 2-1/2” strips. The block is used in a 91” x 91” layout that includes (48) diamonds and a background. The block can be mixed and matched and rotated with other similar sized diamond blocks using an online fabric and block auditioning application called Quiltster.

Scandinavian Snowflake
20″ Diameter  • Fabric:  Hoffman California Batiks

The Scandinavian Snowflake pattern includes enough papers to make (4) Table Toppers. The pattern teaches basic paper piecing techniques and introduces quilters to the Quiltworx applique technique using laser-cut Stitch-N-Peel applique stabilizers for turn-under applique. 

87″ x 94″  • Fabric:  Batik Textiles

Thanks to the efforts of Certified Instructor, Kelly Grant, the Starburst has been recently updated in a new colorway using fabrics from Batik Textiles!  The pattern instructions include information on kitting the version shown!

The Starburst Pattern is a classic Quiltworx design that Judy and Brad completed back in 2000. It has been out of publication for around three years and is returning to you now with new borders, an updated sample, a quilting design, and new instructions!

Winter Wonderland
17″ x 49″  • Fabric:  Bohemian Blues

Originally designed in 2011, we decided to recreate the blocks of Winter Wonderland, changing the size, and loading it into Quiltster, allowing it to become part of a series of patterns where 16” blocks can be mixed and matched to create a variety of layouts.
