Last fall, I took a workshop with Catherine Wilson, who is a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor. The pattern is Winter Wonderland, and it's meant to be a 3-star wall hanging and/or table runner.
I chose to make just one star. Time constraints and having 20 projects going at once influenced my decision.
There are 8 pages of instructions! There are templates! There are fussy ways of folding fabric and cutting tiny pieces!
It was all a bit overwhelming, until I got into class and Catherine patiently explained what to do. I can see why you would need to be certified to teach this method.
|Will the points match?!|
I still managed to fold some of my fabric incorrectly and end up with cuts on the wrong side, but luckily, they were just barely big enough to work when I flipped them over.
The process was challenging and fun. But I'm still glad I only made one star. (So far. I have templates for two more.)

I put a hanging sleeve on the back as I hope to hang this in a show at the end of May.
It feels so good to cross a UFO off my list!
On to the next!
