Judy Niemeyer Patterns and Getting Ready for Market

Judy Niemeyer's new patterns, Bali Wedding Star and Stepping Stones are in. They are so pretty and use the 2 1/2" strip kits which Judy chose for us when she was here in June. She is definitely amazing and just does it so quickly. Bali Wedding Star is in and we also have the extra papers.

Below is a photo of our Scraparama strip kits that work beautifully with both the Bali Wedding Star and Stepping stones. (see photo below)

Stepping Stone is striking and also pretty simple to make, at least for a Judy Niemeyer pattern! We have this pattern in and also the extra papers to make the quilt larger.

We didn't go to Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh this year so we are a little ahead of the game with our patterns for fall...Not sure if that is the way to look at it but we are goin' with it!
One of my favorite new patterns was designed by our friend, Marianne Harwood, who loves floral quilts. It is called Blooming Vases. The scrappy black and blue backgrounds are very neat and the quarter square sashing in blues is pretty. What do you think?

Another really fun quilt is the Halloween quilt, which is neither finished nor named. We are changing the center block and making the witch a larger. It is bright and fun. The owl is very cool.

This photo is a work in progress. Betsy came up with this pattern to put her birthday swap blocks together last year and we all love it! So, of course we had to make it into a pattern! It is not quite ready yet but is in the "testing" phase.
Sassafras is a new very scrappy pieced pattern. There are four blocks, all with the same pieces but arranged differently.

Hope you are enjoying some cool fall weather. Here in TX it should be a pleasant temperature in a month or two.
Come see us at Quilt Country and check out our new models. We have added lots of new ones and re organized.
