  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.
