One of my favorite patterns to teach is “Summer Solstice” by Judy Niemeyer. Several techniques are used to make this fabulous quilt and I call it a weekend quilt – once you know the techniques – you can make it in a weekend. I have made 4 of these quilts myself.
A couple of weeks ago I was the guest speaker for the Baytown Area Quilt Guild.
I always enjoy when guild members bring their “Judy” quilts for show and tell on the night I am there. We had 3 Judy quilts, 2 of them were Summer Solstice. A fellow Certified Instructor had taught this class at Painted Pony in 2013 and these were 2 of the quilts finished in that class. (Please forgive the photography on these, during show and share the quilts are moving targets!)
I also recently volunteered to make a sample for Quiltworx aka Judy Niemeyer Quilting for fall market here in Houston starting next week. The pattern – Summer Solstice – the fabrics the new “Reclaimed West” line designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer and distributed by Timeless Treasures. If you will be at Market stop by the Checkers booth to see it in person! Many more samples for this fabric line will be in the Timeless Treasures booth!
Here also are a few other quilts from the guilds “Show and Share”
This was my last stop for the year – I will hit 2015 running starting with The Kingwood Quilt Guild, Kingwood, TX. January 8 evening lecture. Workshop January 9 & 10.
To see when I might be in your area look here!
Til next time!

Hi Denise, Thank you for showing the two Summer Solstice quilts. One was Janie’s and one belongs to Gail. I was helping Gail show the quilts since Janie was out of town. Thanks Kathy
Kathy, thanks for the update. I changed the blog to reflect the correct maker of the quilt!
