Judy, Judel and Brad Niemeyer designed the layout, instructions, and foundation papers for Eight: In a Rainbow, which is a pattern in the Quiltworx.com Leaf Series. The Leaf Series is a collection of patterns designed to teach quilters some of Judy’s latest techniques, including curved paper piecing and appliqué of paper pieced units. A collection of fabrics designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer called Wildflowers, by Timeless Treasures were selected to make the sample shown on the cover. The pattern was published in 2014 in another collection called Reclaimed West. This latest publication includes a bright and colorful strip paper pieced border. A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used to assemble the units required to make this quilt. Curved piecing, traditional piecing, and appliqué are used to assemble the wall hanging after the foundation piecing is completed.
