    I have this pattern to make as soon as I finish a few other projects, but was wondering if anyone has made this beautiful quilt (pattern by Judy Neimeyer). If you have, would love to see your pictures.

    I just looked this one up -- it's beautiful. But to clarify -- the Pattern AND foundation for piecing is included in the $50.00 price tag. Not just instructions for paper piecing. Please correct me if I'm wrong -- but that's the way I read the pattern info.

    Yes, the pattern is $50.00 but that includes enough paper piecing templates to do an 80x80 quilt per her website. Extra papers are $12.50 a package.

    Yes, the $50 does seem like quite a bit. I asked for it for Christmas because I just couldn't spend the money myself. But I must admit, I really, really wanted it. The pattern picture is made with bali batiks, which I dearly love, but I think it would look good in other fabrics as well. I've made one other Judy Neimeyer pattern and really enjoyed doing it, although I think it was much easier than this one is likely to be.

    Hope someone out there can post some pictures - maybe some advice.

    I am working on one of the Bali Wedding stars right now. The directions make it sound a lot more complicated than what it is to actually do the pieces. It is going together easier than my double wedding ring quilt that I ordered from Fons and Porter. The paper piecing helps to keep your block stabilized while you are sewing it together. Plus I bought one of the Curve Master attachment foot to use to sew together curved pieces and between the two the pieces are going together nicely. I hope to have mine completed sometime before summer. It just depends on how much time I have to piece between doing longarm quilting for customers. If you can buy the pattern/directions without any of the fabric that is what I would suggest. Or Keepsake Quilting has the Bali Bedrunner pattern to make a 30 x 104 cover which includes the paper piece pattern, directions and the fabric for the background.

    I just signed up to take the class with Judy Niemeyer next month at a LQS. I am looking forward to doing it. I am going to use Bali Pops to make it. She lists them as option in the pattern booklet. I also plan to use the flying geese border.

    I went to the St George quilt show over the weekend and talked to a gal who just received her certification as a teacher and she made the Bali Wedding Star with that border. She says it's beautiful and it lays better on the bed, since it has square corners. I plan to make the 8 x 8 with the borders. She said it will fit a king bed. I am excited.

    Judy also samples on her website that her students have made. People have made them with different colors. The website is: www.quiltworx.com.

    OH WOW, and I'm too impatient to do a double Wedding Ring, I'd never get more than one block of this done. But it shore is lovely.

    I have the pattern and am collecting fabric now. I'm not sure when I will get started. It's a stunning quilt.

    I have the pattern & will be taking the class this summer to do it. Right now I'm just about finished with Judy's Glacier Star. Did the Christmas table topper in November. Love her style of paper piecing it is a lot of fun

    I took a class from Judy Niemeyer years ago - made the Garden Double Wedding Ring - she is an awesome teacher and the quilt went together pretty easily. Everything is included inher patterns and they are worth the price!! I would love to take another class from her since she has a lot more patterns now. Go for it!!

    I am currently working on the Garden Double Wedding ring quilt by Neimeyer and am having trouble putting the corner piece on. and when I get one completed and try to square it I can't. Any suggestions would be greatly apprciated.

    I do love the bail Star and would love to make it someday by the 50 dollar price tag is holding me back.

    I have not made the Bali Wedding Star, but years ago I took a class from Judy. Her method is FANTABULOUS and her patterns are exquisite. It will be well worth your efforts. Many use batiks in her patterns. I personally, am not a batik fan, so I would go with a line I was real partial to. Praises that quilting beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
