Judy Niemeyer Quilt Trunk Show

 My friend
flew in all the way from Connecticut
to teach some quilt classes in the Phoenix Metro.
It's always so fun to have her here!
 Jackie is a 
Nationally Certified Judy Niemeyer Teacher,
and started the day off today
with a trunk show/ lecture
at 35th Ave Sew and Vac
I will show you several of Jackie's quilts,
but because she brought so many, I will split
this trunk show up into several posts.
Jackie made
 Sunflower Illusions
in her favorite colors of pink and green
to look like the Asters planted in her yard.
  The original pattern
is an example of
  how different the quilt looks in 
this color way.
 All of Judy N's patterns can be found
on her Quiltworxs web site 
 Many of Judy Niemeyer's quilts have a 
New York Beauty feel.
Jackie pointed out that Judy designs her patterns
so the stars "float"
Notice how the star ends
have plenty of room within the circle
and are never cut off?
 Love love love this 
Willow Bed Runner
I think it has a Frank Lloyd Wright feel.
 Jackie likes bright, happy colors
and often uses
Kaffe Fassett fabrics for her quilts.
 Indian Summer
is a nice place for a beginner to start
as they learn the 
Judy Niemeyer techniques.
The block really is fairly simple.
Jackie's samples ranged from 
easy to complex.
More tomorrow!
