This class will focus on Judy Niemeyer Foundation Paper Piecing techniques using either of her two patterns: Lincoln Log Cabin (a table topper) or The Beach House (a quilt). These patterns include the following techniques:
Curved paper piecing
Cut out template
Cutting and preparing foundation papers
Floating points
Paper piecing template
Paper piecing tutorial
Strip piecing
Templates and template layout sheets
Tools for paper pieced quilting

Both patterns are fat quarter friendly:
  • The Lincoln Log Cabin requires 4 med/dark fat quarters and 4 light fat quarters. This project features 4 blocks that finish 24” x 24” without a border.
  • The Beach House requires 16 med/dark fat quarters and 16 light fat quarters. This project features 16 blocks and finishes at 57 “x 57”, with an available option to expand the size. 
These units are designed using a technique in which part of the pieced block unit is cut away after the paper piecing is completed. The cut-away section is then replaced with a secondary design element referred to as the circling geese unit.

Connie chose to teach these patterns because it teaches essential Foundation Paper Piecing skills that you can use in other Judy Niemeyer patterns. It is possible to complete most of the 4 blocks during the workshop, so you won’t go home with another unfinished project on your shelf!

Connie wants her students to be successful with Foundation Paper Piecing and learn the techniques unique to Judy’s patterns. Therefore, she will be teaching an extra class on Sunday afternoon, September 8, for students to bring their patterns and fabric to learn the cutting techniques needed for success. Details on this will be available for those who register for the workshop.
