Working on a Quiltworx pattern

If you have never heard of Quiltworx or Judy Neimeyer, you are truly missing out on something wonderful.  The Quiltworx line of paper pieced patterns is meticulously designed to give even the novice piecer perfect results.

Each step of the pattern is placed in a separate ziploc bag and the paper pieces are each marked so you know exactly what piece goes where.  The cutting directions instruct you to cut strips of fabric in different widths, then divide those into smaller chunks.  Those chunks become your fabric pieces during paper piecing.  Because the fabric is cut into such generously sized pieces, you never have to worry about the fabric being too small to cover the paper.

Here are some photos of the Glacier Star that I am currently working on.  I would love to tell you that this is a quick process, and perhaps it is after you have done a few of these. For me, I have been working on it off and on for months.  More off, than on.
