Paper Piecing Wedding Ring Series
Quilts…Wedding Rings…Families…Traditions…woven together to provide warmth, décor, and a sense of personal satisfaction.
At Butterfly Meadows Inn & Farm, our motto is Relax ~ Create ~ Breathe. We are excited to offer quilters of all levels a remarkable opportunity to do all of the above in a Paper Piecing Quilt Retreat April 28 – May 1, 2013.
Our focus for the retreat is the Judy Niemeyer Paper Piecing “Wedding Ring Ring Series” lead by Judy Niemeyer Quilting Certified Instructor, Fran Sargent. Judy Niemeyer’s stunning take on the Wedding Ring pattern is made possible with her simple and elegant foundation paper piecing techniques. This class will cover several of Judy’s techniques, including strip piecing using 2 ½” strips and the wedding ring arc technique. You will practice your skills and make a 30” x 104” table runner or bed runner that will become a treasured family heirloom weaving together the quilt, wedding rings, families and traditions to provide warmth, décor and a sense of personal satisfaction.
One of Fran’s many specialties is helping absolute beginners learn the skills they need to become accomplished quilters. Her students always feel encouraged and supported as they continually challenge themselves to learn new techniques.
The “Wedding Ring Ring Series” includes six patterns and each student may choose any one of the following:
- Grandma’s Wedding Ring
- Wedding Ring Bedrunner
- Bali Wedding Star
- Bali Bedrunner
- Forever Yours Table Runner
- Flowers for My Wedding Ring
The timing of this retreat makes the finished product a perfect gift for those spring and summer weddings, graduation, and sending a child off to college. Come Relax ~ Create ~ and Breathe with us.
