Redesigned by Quiltworx

This year, Judy and Judel came up to Heritage Park for the special display of Quiltworx quilts.  They also put on a display of their own of their Red and White quilts, many of which are featured in their Redesigned:  In Red, White & Black book.  Following the show, they very kindly lent us the quilts, which we hung in the store for the following 5 weeks.  It was a stunning display, but in case you live away or weren’t able to see them at the park or in the store, below are some pictures:

Thanks again to Judith and Judel for coming up for the Festival of Quilts and for allowing us to share with you their beautiful creations!

And by the way, we offer a Niemeyer club at our store on Saturday evenings.  If you would like more information on this, please see our class and club listings.

It’s on Fire, Lorna!

We offer private one-on-one lessons for customers that want to learn a technique or pattern.  So when Lorna B. came to us wondering how she could get assistance through the construction of Judy Niemeyer’s Fire Island Hosta, staff member Laura gave her some lessons.  Lorna brought the top in for us to see once she had it constructed, and it was fabulous.

Myrna’s Christmas Celebration

Myrna is an instructor here at the store, who is an afficionado of Judy Niemeyer patterns (aka, Quiltworx).  So much so, that she has taken many classes from Judy and completed 9 of her patterns.  Well , 10, now that she has put the binding on her Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt or Table Topper seen below:

Myrna’s Wedding Star

Another Stampede winning quilt we current have hanging in the store right now is Myrna M.’s Bali Wedding Star.  This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern.  This quilt glows where the colour pops.

I don’t think the picture really does the colour justice.  Perhaps because this is a big quilt, the camera couldn’t capture all the nuances.  If you click on the picture, you can get a larger image.

Myrna took a 2nd place ribbon.  Congratulations Myrna!

Maureen Wood’s Classes

Yesterday we hung Maureen Wood’s quilts and boy do they look fabulous!  They are all Judy Niemeyer designs, and Maureen is a certified instructor coming to our store to teach this June.

On June 13 & 14, she is teaching a choice of Stepping Stones, Waterfalls, or Cappuccino:  A Party for Four (placemats).  This is the perfect launching point for someone who has never done any kind of foundation paper piecing. 

Stepping Stones and Cappuccino

Then on June 15, 16, & 17 she is teaching from the Judy Niemeyer series of Lonestar quilts:  Prairie Star, Dragon Star, Summer Solstice, Cattails in the Meadow, and Amazon Star.  Pictured below is Maureen’s Prairie Star.

Prairie Star

 Maureen’s classes are part of our Summer in the City series.  Lunch is provided for all of these classes.  Further details can be found in the class listings under the Events box on our homepage:  http://www.alongcamequilting.com/ .

Hope you can come by and see these up close and personal.
