I thought it would be a good idea to start listing the various types of paper that people use when they are paper piecing.  Personally I prefer newsprint over anything else.  I bought a case from…Continue

I think Rita holds 2 JN classes per year so maybe in the fall she will have another one.  I just wish it wasn't so far for me to go there as I would have the added expense of having to stay in a hotel.

Janet....I think I saw on Facebook that Quilters Station just had a Judy Niemeyer class. I took my class in Colorado. The instructor had some amazing quilts in her trunk show. Not sure I could have completed this project without taking the class. I do think it’s one of my favorite things I’ve done.

Connie - Twinkle Star is beautiful! You did a fantastic job!

Hi Connie, I love your recent project it looks amazing and can see how challenging it would be, but you did it, clever girl, well done.  I don't think they have any JN classes here in UK if they did i would enrole.

Thanks for sharing this Connie. You did a fabulous job.  I was just thinking a couple days ago that I need to check to see when Quilters Station is going to hold another JN class as they do that a couple of times a year.

Finally finished Twinkle Star from a Judy Niemeyer class I took last fall. I enjoyed this Paper Pieced project, but it was definitely a challenge. Would love to do another, but have too many other things to finish first.

Now that I'm getting to the bottom of a lot of my older projects I should do my Judy Niemeyer class on Craftsy that is taught by Jackie Kunkel.  Barb, I will have to check out Linda Hibbert's designs.  Her name sounds familiar, but I can't picture what her designs look like.

Janet, I'm glad you'll be keeping this group live. I love PPing, but just haven't had time. I'm saving a new series of monthly blocks from Linda Hibbert, Silver Linings Originals. Her designs are a bit difficult, but beautiful. I'm hoping to do them a little at a time when I have a lul.

I keep looking at more Judy Niemeyer patterns but tell myself I just can’t warrant purchasing another one until I quilt and bind the one I’ve done. And I do have a pattern and fabric for a different paper piecing quilt that I need to do. Just don’t think I’ll live long enough to do everything I want to do!

Happy Mother’s Day to all!
