What's New in December 2019!

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

Hello quilting friends! As we chug towards the holidays, we’re excited to unveiled several more publications showcased at the Fall Quilt market. These new patterns are available on our website, and their fabric lines are 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 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!

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).

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!

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!

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!

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

Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, and Java Blenders


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.
