Hello Everyone,

This week has been a very productive week for me.  I have been working on a Judy Niemeyer project and have been having such fun!  As most of you know I am a Certified Judy Niemeyer Instructor and LOVE paper piecing.  The accuracy cannot be compared to regular piecing.

Let me show you my progress for the week....

I completed two of the units of the New York Beauty section of the Prairie Star.  Here I only show you 4 of each of these, but there are 8 in total.  I have fun with these and love those perfect points.

Ooooops... my helpers came and impeded my progress a little bit on the RS Units.  Not sure if they just didn't want me to finish or just wanted to be around me?  Oh wait, they were inspecting the quality!!! How many of you have inspectors?

Here is proof positive that my inspectors approved.. I have the RS units or as I like to call them "tiaras" or "crowns".  After all they are part of a New York Beauty!

Here I was playing quite a bit... I just put four of each unit together and the result was this little beauty.

Yesterday, I was able to complete the lone star unit.  I just love this technique to put the lone star together.  You just can't beat it!  I am almost done with all the units and can't wait to put this baby together!  So stay tuned for more next week.

Have you ever wanted to learn Judy Niemeyer's Paper Piecing Technique but were afraid to try?  Be afraid no more... 

Take my exclusive online class with Craftsy!  I teach you the technique while creating a beautifully updated Dresden Plate!  Just click on this unique link of mine to receive half off the course.  The best part is you have the class for life and can ask me questions anytime you like!!! How cool is that?  Then you will have the confidence to tackle other Judy Niemeyer patterns... like the Prairie Star!

So join me and the over 2,300 students who are enrolled in the class and make a beautiful project!

Until Next Time...
