Event Details

Confident Beginner/Intermediate

In this 2-day workshop on Saturday & Sunday, Kathy Groves will teach you the Compass Rose Table Runner, a pattern by Judy Niemeyer from her company, Quiltworx.  It is the central pattern for many of Judy’s larger quilts and thus is a great introduction to the foundation paper piecing technique.  This class is appropriate for confident beginners as well as experienced quilt makers.  You may not complete the entire table runner – but you should have sufficient time to make 1 or more complete blocks.  Once the blocks are complete – joining them is as straightforward as joining 9 patch blocks. 

The pattern contains enough papers to make two 22″ x 69″ Table Runners (a total of 8 Rose blocks).   If you prefer, instead of sewing them in a table runner design – these blocks can be stacked and made into a beautiful wall hanging.  If you want to make a larger quilt – replacement packs are available that include only extra papers so you can easily make more blocks! 

This class will introduce you to the Quiltworx techniques which make paper piecing a favorite technique for many quilt makers.  From cutting and organizing to finishing your quilt, Judy’s techniques make it very manageable… and fun!  Don’t be surprised if you are planning your next “Judy Quilt” before you finish this one!  Visit Kathy at Bobkat Quilts and learn more about her in our recent blog interview.
