Theresa’s Glacier Star Update

Theresa came to Judy Club and assembled half of her Glacier Star. It’s looking fabulous, Theresa! The lighting doesn’t do it justice. The center and outer greens really pop together in unison.

Glacier Star

The Glacier Star Technique of the Month began this weekend.  Our teacher is Gretchen Veteran, a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor.


Gretchen was prepared for a wide range of skill and comfort levels among her students and was ready to guide us through the very basics as needed.  So there was minimal advance preparation required for the class. This session was dedicated to the New York Beauty motif.

Gretchen showed some students how to use the template layout sheets.  Other students already had their fabrics cut and ready to go for the New York Beauty blocks.  She had everybody piece the spiked outer arc of the block and the spiked center and then showed us her pleating technique for curved piecing.

Congratulations to Theresa and Ann, who finished their New York Beauty block in class!


In our pay-as-you-go program, you may enroll in only those sessions of interest to you or that fit your schedule. Click here to join us next time as we focus on the Lone Star block.

When we are all done, our quilts will look like this (wall hanging on the left; queen on the right):
