Macaw is constructed using four distinct sections: Group J is comprised of (8) center diamonds; Groups K, and L radiate out from the center star in three additional rounds of (8) star points each; and Group B is a pieced border added to the rounds to result in a 57″-square quilt. The quilt blocks were designed by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer. The layout and colorway was created by Judy Niemeyer using Quiltster.
