Bradley and Judy Niemeyer designed the foundation pieces and layout for Island Sunrise. A collection of fabrics designed by Island Batik were used make the quilts shown on the cover. A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used when sewing the pieces onto the foundation units. Curved piecing and traditional piecing are required to join the units after the foundation piecing is completed.
This past year we have designed new, fast, and easy cutting instructions using Template Layout Sheets, making this a fun and easy quilt for any beginner or advanced quilter to make up in just a few days. A special thanks to Island Batik for providing us with the fabrics to make the quilt shown on the cover page.
