Requirements: Certified Judy Niemeyer Instructor: Donna Mather General Information: The Coral Reef pattern uses a technique called foundation paper piecing to assemble the units required to make the quilt. Both curved and traditional piecing are used to join the foundation pieced units to complete the quilt. This class teaches the Judy Niemeyer techniques required to successfully complete this technique of the month pattern.

If you need ideas for color schemes go to or the quiltworx support network on Facebook which you will need to request to join. In both places you will find several color changing quilts to get ideas from as well as from the cover sheets for the pattern in each booklet. The Quiltster program is also available. Quiltster is a subscription- based software application that allows you to open up a blank line drawing of Carnival Flower and add fabrics to each location so you can see what your quilt will look like and obtains yardage requirements for your own unique colorway. To sign up for Quiltster, visit It helps in staying organized by using the fabric swatch boxes. Cut small pieces of fabric and paste or tape them in the boxes in each booklet for reference when cutting the fabrics. Make a copy of these pages if you plan to use this pattern more than once and glue your fabric swatches to the copy. The binder clips or wonder clips* listed in the class supplies are used to clip the templates and fabric pieces together and the Ziploc bags to keep you organized. The large plastic coated paper clips are needed in the cutting process. I prefer wonder clips and you will probably go through at least a box of 50. Please have your fabrics purchased and organized prior to the class. I will have to know at least 3 weeks prior to the first day of class which quilt you would like to make.? There are 2 sizes available.? These patterns must be ordered through me since they are a Technique of the month pattern and can only be ordered through a certified instructor.?
