Jackie Kunkel (Canton Village Quilt Works)
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

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.

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.
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.
