*Paradise in Bloom - class 5 of 7


Time: 10:00am to 1:00pm

Teacher: Barb Miller

This is the new Judy Niemeyer Certified Shop pattern for 2015.  You can only purchase it through a Certified Shop or a Certified Instructor, and with Mt. Pleasant being a Certified Shop, and Barb being a Certified Instructor- you’re covered- you can purchase it here.  This is a Technique of the Month (TOM) pattern.  Just like it says: you learn one technique a month.  Everyone will find success and you will end up with a completed
78” x 78” wall quilt or add extensions for a 98” x 98” quilt.  I’m really excited about this pattern. Many of you have already seen the quilt hanging in the shop.  Mary Lou and I went to Montana this past September to sew the quilt (wallhanging size) under Judy’s tutelage as the pattern had not gone to print at that time. (Maybe we were guinea pigs?...but anyway… our quilt hung at Quilt Market in Houston and just got back from a tour in Australia with Judy -(the quilt-not me-darn it!)  The quilt is named so appropriately -  beautiful Birds of Paradise flowers are in this quilt.  You will learn Judy Niemeyer’s paper piecing techniques, and her method of applique.  I had only been a straight stitch edge machine applique gal before I went out, but came back with a new enthusiasm and love for machine applique.  I would like to impart this same excitement to you. You DO NOT have to have made a Judy Niemeyer pattern to take this class. (My next one will be the queen size.) Kits available
