Judy and Brad Niemeyer designed the Instructions, and foundation papers for the Snowy River Hosta. They layout for the pattern was designed by Jennifer Mellow as part of a Hosta Design Challenge using Quiltster, sponsored by Quiltworx, Quiltster, Island Batik, Aurifil Threads, Hobbs Batting, SCHMETZ Needles, Carolyn McCormick (the designer of the Add-A-Quarter ruler), Thimble Towne Quilt Shop, and Keepsake Quilting. Thank you to all our sponsors and entries into the contest!
A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used to assemble the units required to make this quilt. Traditional piecing and curved piecing techniques are used to join the units after the foundation piecing is completed. The color layout for the quilt on the cover was designed in Quiltster, a subscription-based fabric and block auditioning application that includes Quiltworx patterns (and others!).
