The Pineapple

Ever wonder how all those perfect points come together in those beautiful Judy Niemeyer patterns?  Join us in making this super cute Judy Niemeyer Wall Hanging and find out!  

This is the perfect sized project to start your paper piecing journey, big enough to showcase your skills, but small enough to make in a reasonable amount of time. 

This is a two-for-one class, as you will also learn how to navigate Quiltster, the website platform used to design and color all your Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx patterns.  

The first day your will bring your laptops or iPads where you will design and color your project. We will then kit your projects right there in the shop, using the fabrics of your choice.  We will also cut out the patterns and be ready for the second day, when we will cut your fabrics out and learn how to organize your project. A demo of the actual paper piecing process will follow, with enough time for one-on-one instruction.  The two week break between the two, 2-day sessions will give you time to paper piece the sections.  The third day will be a demonstration on how to do curves and we will begin the assembly process.  The fourth day will be spent finishing your assembly. 
Bring your laptops or iPads!  
We will be using your computers or iPads the first day to learn the Quiltster website and to design and color your projects.  The fee for Quiltster design website is separate and is $9.99 for a month.  You will be able to use Quiltster for an entire month to color and design as many of Judy Niemeyer's patterns that you want during that time.  You can stop the monthly fee at any time and re-join at anytime in the future using the same email address.  
Also, bring your large cutting mats, a long ruler and a rotary cutter the first day (we will need them to cut out our large newsprint patterns).  You will NOT need to bring your sewing machines the first day.  You will need to bring your machines on all other subsequent days.
DAYS 2-4
Sewing machine with a 1/4" foot
Large cutting mat to cut out your fabric strips (you will only need this the first and second day)
Small cutting mat to use at your table
