Judy and Brad Niemeyer designed the Amazon Star for foundation paper piecing over 10 years ago. The pattern was first designed when Judy was just beginning to adapt her patterns for pre-cut templates, stacking instructions, and strip piecing for her lone star blocks. Since that time, she has made tremendous advancement in her techniques and added a few more! The new pattern, while more expensive, includes full Template Layout Sheets allowing for layers of (8) pieces of fabric, floating points, her latest strip-piecing technique for lone star construction, smart corners, and also uses less fabric than the original design.
This king size quilt comes in at less than 20 Yards of fabric! The cutting instructions will save you hours of time, assembly is more accurate with smart corners, and the updated instructions clarify many of the areas where quilters have struggled with the original pattern. We hope that the updates will be ones many people appreciate with the overall changes being ones that make this quilt easier to make for future quilters.
A collection of Tonga Batiks called Copper and Peacock, designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures Fabrics, were used for the quilt shown on the coversheet.
