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.
