Welcome! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit the Crafty Threads blog!

This blog tour is hosted by Timeless Treasures to celebrate the release of Judy & Judel Niemeyer's first-ever fabric line, The Reclaimed West.

Crafty Threads has been a Judy Niemeyer
Certified Shop since June 2013.
I always liked paper piecing, but when I discovered the "Judy" method of paper piecing, 
I was forever hooked.
Take a class, pick up one of her MANY patterns, and fall in love with paper piecing all over again!

I chose the pattern "Golden Harvest" to highlight the lighter shades of the Reclaimed West.

First, I made sure all the cows were not standing on their heads!


Cows? In Florida? Sure thing!
Florida's ranchers raise the third largest number of cattle of any state east of the Mississippi.


The photo above shows part of the piecing process.  Everything fits together so precisely.
That's the beauty of paper piecing!

"TA DA"!  The finished top!

We have this version of "Golden Harvest" in a limited number of kits.  You can see all of our Judy Niemeyer pattern and kit selections on our website.
