TOM TOM TOM – Technique of the Month

Exciting news on the pattern front!  Quiltworx aka Judy Niemeyer Quilting has just announced their newest Technique of the Month.  These are released on a bi-annual basis.  The pattern will be going through a rigorous testing process over the next few months and then the final results will be printed and ready for release January 2015.

RETREATS RETREATS RETREATS – I plan to teach the new Technique of the Month in shops as well as retreats – if you are interested in a retreat let me know.

The first technique of the month was Glacier Star (2011) and I was totally in love.  I have taught this class numerous times as well as made several quilts in collaboration with Pinwheels and Posies.

Here are a few photos of Glacier Star –
