Judy Niemeyer Workshop - Hosted by Victoria
Got Judy Niemeyer quilts started and stuffed in your closets? Stuck on something that keeps you from finishing that Judy Niemeyer quilt that you just had to have and now you're asking yourself; "why did I ever buy that pattern and all of that fabric?
Well scoop all of it up and bring it down to Queen B's Quilt Shop and let's get it finished.
Come sit & sew with me from 11 am to 3 pm and ask away, any questions on any pattern and we will get you through what you thought was the most confusing pattern you ever bought. I promise it is easier than you think. No pressure, no class time limits, just finishing what I consider are some of the most beautiful quilts there are.

Vintage Rose - Technique of the Month (TOM) 6
Hey Judy Niemeyer fans; the long awaited 4th TOM is finally coming to Queen B's Quilt Shop. Have you had troubles picking fabrics and being confident that you know exactly where each piece of fabric is going to go?
Judy has redesigned the cutting instructions so you can now pick the exact spot where thatawesome piece of purple fabric that you have been holding on to for the right quilt, is going to go and know if you have enough fabric for it.
In the first class we will be going over the new cutting directions, how to read them and deciding what fabric you will use because the many options offered by this pattern are mind blowing.
So pack up your favorite fabrics, a pair of scissors, a glue stick and some lunch, we will be sitting down talking fabric placement, gluing swatches and trimming the first package of papers.
Bring that sewing machine just in case you just have to get your Judy fix before you go! I can't wait to see you and the new color options everyone comes up with. The dimensions of the Finished Project are: Wall-74" x 74" or Queen-96" x 96".
There are a total of 6 classes in this TOM.
