Did Someone Say Paper Piecing?

Hello Everyone,

Back in November, I had the opportunity to take another class with Judy Niemeyer, whose work I really admire. You can read about it here and here.

I took two classes and one of them was the Seasonal Table Runner. I really need to put something new on my kitchen table and thought this would be perfect. But I hadn't been able to get back to it until last weekend at Victoria's. Here is a chronicle of what is done...


The above photo is the three different components in the quilt. All the batiks were chosen from batiks in my shop. You can find them here. Even though they look quite Christmasy, these are my kitchen colors.


Thought you might like to see the back too. Judy's patterns ALL come with ALL the papers you will need to make the quilt. No photo copying needed!!


Here is what all three components look like when placed together.


Then the entire piece!! I love it, but I have to fix one thing before joining the components, bet you can't find it!!

So if you would like to give this one a try, you can purchase her patterns by clicking here. I know you will love them.

Also, if you have a minute, I am a guest blogger over at Victoria's today!! Go check it out and leave me a comment... I love them!!

Today is the LAST day to enter the GIVEAWAY for Pat's Sloan's beautiful new book. Just click here for the details.

***JAPAN - Please consider helping those in need. Stephanie has put a call out, I donated and would love it if you can too. Just go to Stephanie's blog and get all the details.***


Until Next Time...

Love it, I think I know, one of the centre points is a dark fabric and should be green.

cheers

Curves, points, and circles. Wow, it's so pretty. Off to visit you at Victoria's.

Beautiful!! I NEVER would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it (I love a challenge), but I think it's the fact that you have two green geese together in the top circle. The others alternate between red and green.

Looks wonderful -- and who cares about the "thing to fix"?

Very nice! Judy Niemeyer's designs are amazing. I have one of her patterns sitting around that I pet every now and then, but I haven't come up with the perfect fabric to make it in yet (and I can't decide whether I want to copy some pieces after all and make it bigger!).

Heather said...

That is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing it.

As someone who struggles with paper piecing my mind just boggles when I see. that. :)

I like to leave the little mistakes like the 2 green geese together in a quilt, because it makes for a conversation starter if you wanted it to be, and no one else would know it was there, unless you pointed it out. Plus it proves your still human.

OMGosh! That is just lovely!!

Stunning Jackie! I love foundation piecing too.

Laura said...

I'm working on Judy Niemeyer's Total Eclipse right now -- it seems like I've been sewing it forever, but it's only been a week. I took a class with a certified instructor and think it really helped to figure it all out! Now I feel like a pro. Her patterns are stunning.

Another beautiful project! After you switch out those two green geese that are together it will be "perfect".

Colleen said...

WoW!

Anina said...

Love it Jackie! You should hop over to my blog and see the quilt I saw at a quilt show this weekend. It made me think of you and your paper piecing.
