I took a class at NQA from a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor on Judy's Desert Sky quilt. Judy's patterns are so *involved*, I wanted to have someone telling what came next on my first one. I was very glad I did. I also bought a kit, so the instructor had all the fabrics picked out, and preliminary cutting done. As you probably know, Judy's quilts use paper piecing as her means of making those sharp precise points. Here are some pictures from the class. Karen Conley was the instructor. I would rate her as very good.
The bottom picture is from Desert Sky, the others are different Judy patterns. Karen said after making this pattern, we should be able to make other Judy patterns without someone step-by-stepping us thru it. It actually was not difficult when you do it step by step.
Here are some pics from my pieces:
The red/blue quadrant is my favorite. The colors really pop for me. It will have a background, like the bottom picture does, of the blue raindrop fabric. Putting on the background piece is pretty easy too, because everything fits so well.
Can't wait to work on this again. Soon. Just a few things in front of it.
