These quilts and table runner are absolutely beautiful so I am going to let them tell you in their own words….
Mermaids Tale was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer and was built using blocks from the Cattail Mixer series, including the Shimmering Star block and the Star Shower border. It also includes a C border, which does not include any foundation paper piecing. These instructions are broken down by groups, referred to as Groups A, B, & C. Size 68 x 68.
Frozen Fountain includes four sections referred to as Groups A, B, C, and D. The A group is a diamond block referred to as the Ice Crystal Star, the B group squares up the diamonds and is referred to as Icicles, the C group is an on-point border group called Satin and Lace, and the D group square up the on-point design to create a 99-inch square queen size quilt. This pattern incorporates all of Quiltworx’s latest techniques as well.
The Spice Rack was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only straight-lined foundation piecing and assembly, 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. Size 75 x 97
The Prism Table Runner is a design inspired by an idea of Certified Instructor, Joanne Wearing, hoping for a table runner workshop that utilized the Prismatic Star block, which would be available for a one day workshop. This pattern is the result. If this is the first time you’ve done a Quiltworx pattern, you will learn foundation paper strip piecing techniques for lone star diamonds and also striped borders along with the use of cutting templates, smart corners, and TRP lines. Size 22 x 65.

I have always loved Judy Niemeyer designs but didn’t have the time to make many of her larger projects. That is why I am loving these smaller ones that showcase one technique and, in some cases, can be done in an afternoon.

This Poinsettia design makes piecing circles simple – and at 30″, is the perfect centerpiece for a round table. Once again, additional papers are available.
Fractured Star in an 80″ square. In Judell’s words: The Fractured Star was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only 1 foundation block, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project.

This fabric line – designed by Judy and Judell for Timeless Treasures – has around twenty different prints. Why not buy all of them? These are the most difficult fabrics to find in batiks so shops can never have enough! There are also several pre-cuts to choose from. See the entire line at:
This queen size quilt is stunning – and I am only using that word because I can’t think of a word that would truly do it justice! What a dramatic three color quilt. And, I have it on good authority, that the fabrics used in this quilt are premiering at Quilt Market and will be available at Checker on Saturday…
The book – Redesigned – showcases several of their patterns shown in this new colorway. (Patterns available separately.)
The red and white quilt craze has been wildly popular since the Red and White exhibit in New York, but finding true reds to make these quilts has NOT been easy. And, batik red, whites, and blacks? Non-existent so you know the book, pattern, and soon to be released fabric line are instant winners!
