Glacier Star – Technique of the Month (TOM) (8)


The Glacier Star pattern is Judy Niemeyer’s first Technique of the Month (TOM) quilt, published in 2010. The goal of our technique of the month program is to design quilts that incorporate a wide range of Judy’s techniques to be taught by our Certified Instructor Program and Certified Shops and familiarize quilters with our techniques in a manner that will allow them to pick up any of our patterns and successfully complete them after they have completed one of our TOM patterns. This quilt became available to Australian shops in 2013 and continues to be successfully taught across the U.S., Canada and now Australia. It continues to be the most successfully completed quilt pattern of Judy’s publications.
 The dimensions of the finished project are 60" x 60" or 90" x 90". There are a total of 8 classes in this TOM.

  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.
