    I love her patterns and am currently working on Amazon Star.
    It will take me some time, but well worth the effort!

    I've got the first two techniques done on my Glacier Star quilt and it is going so well. Now on the technique 3 and it is the lone star part. I got the floating geese for the lone star done yesterday and it went nice and smooth. Got the NYB blocks done with in 3 days. So some of the techniques take longer than others. But almost half done is pretty good. When it took my 2 months to make the lone star that is my avatar. I usually don't think about how I'm going to quilt it until I have it done and then I audition diffrent template and stencils for quilting on it to see what fits and such. Every one have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    That's the one I want to do next. I'm glad to hear it is going well. I start back to school tomorrow and the kids come next week so I have no idea when I will be able to start. :-)

The other pattern I have is the Bali Wedding Star which I expect to be more complicated but exciting to do.

    If you get one of her patterns, I would strongly urge you to go to the 'corrections' page on her web site to see if any apply to the pattern you purchased. Good luck and enjoy.
    Linda - Both of the quilts you have shown here (the one in your avatar too) are absolutely gorgeous! What is the name of the Judy Niemeyer Pattern you have made here? And is the quilt in your avatar Marcia Hohn's Golden Wedding Ring? I tried paper piecing one of those blocks and am tempted to do a whole quilt. Did it go together without too much trouble?

    Vicki - I am so glad you asked about Judy Niemeyer and that I came across your topic.

    Do any of you have a favorite web site you use that might have a selection of her patterns? Any further recommendations for beginners?

    Hey I'm on technique 4 on my quilt and it was a bugger as it is the snowflake part of the lone star and I think it is comming together pretty good now. I had to frog stich a few times, but got it to go right. This piece can be confusing as it doesn't look right when you first start it, but going together pretty good now. Huggies, Fay..... Oh I forgot, The lady at the store I ordered mine from sent me an email yesterday and said the she has a pattern for the exended border on the Glacier star quilt to make it into a queen size bed quilt. I'll have to check it out.

    BuzzinBumble, the name of the Judy Neimeyer quilt I did is "Indian Summer." The quilt in my avatar is a modified kaleidascope from a patttern in "Encyclopeida of Classic Quilt Patterns." Thank you and others so much for the nice comments on the Indian Summer quilt.

    Is she the one who does the kaleidoscope quilts? I have a tote bag of hers but am nowhere nearly talented enough with fabric to ever attempt a quilt with her designs...I saw her on CBS Sunday Morning Show once...way fun!!

    Love the Judy Neimeyer patterns. The paper piecing makes perfect points possible! I am working on "Christmas Celebrations" tree skirt by Judy now. I am really enjoying it.
    My avatar is Japanese Fans by Judy also.

    I would really like to take a class from one of her certified instructors. I am sure there are a lot of tips to make it easier....it is not that hard but I am sure there are some tricks to the whole process that I could use to help me along. the closest one is about three or four hours away...don't want to travel for monthly classes. It is not that hard so I will just keep going on my own.

    My first JN class was not by a certified instructor and she had us all cut it out wrong. Fortunately I figured it out that the cutting instructions that the instructor gave us was the LONG LONG LONG way of doing it so I came home and did it my way. It still took about six to eight hours but the other lady in class spent 36 hours cutting. Glad I figured it out before I started cutting the cloth. 36 hours is a long long time!

    The website is quiltworx.com. If you win any awards on your quilt with her patterns, send a photo in and you will get $10 off of your next order from her.

    by all means, check for "corrections' on her website before starting any of her patterns. It will save you a lot of frustration as her patterns are so intense (is that the right word?) that errors are easily made when the pattern is first drawn up.

    Wow ! I'll have to send in a photo of my quilt when I get it done. When I started mine I just started the first technique and did the cutting first as per instruction and then did not do any more cutting on the rest of the technique until I was ready. I'm almost done with the 4rth part and now I'll be doing the sawtooth thing that goes on the lone star part of it . I first thought I was doing it wrong as it did not look right, but it is going together pretty well. Had to take a break and watch my show, Ghost Hunters and then I will get going on it again. Foundation piecing can be tedious, but it is so much fun to see the out look of it all once you get some thing done. Actually this is the first quilt I'm foundation piecing, but got a lot of practice wiht the Mariners compass and the NYB blocks that I had been making. Those will end up in a quilt one of these days too. Can't wait to get this put together so I can post it. Have a great evening, Huggies, Fay

    Well I hope you don't mind me being a copycat (it really is the sincerest form of flattery!) I love your quilt so much that I just ordered the Indian summer pattern and fabrics. It said it was for people just learning, so I hope to be able to do it well. I have others in line to do first, but will have a hard time waiting to get started on it. Thank you for sharing yours!

    A plant mister bottle to spray before removing helps, too. Please, please, don't anybody ever get lazy and put the paper pieced top in the washer to get it wet!!!!!! (I made a huge mess and there's probably still paper in the guts of the washer...)
