Swordfish was designed by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer. It includes six sections referred to as Groups J, K, L, B, C, and D, and these group sizes have been standardized so that you can use interchangeable blocks in each space.
If you want to experiment and mix and match the pieces included here with those from other designs, Quiltster is the perfect tool for you to make a quilt completely your own. Likewise, you can use many of the groups in this pattern to make other layouts as well. Explore each of these layouts to learn new ways to incorporate these blocks into future projects as well!


This pattern is available in Quiltster! This means you can color the quilt with your favorite fabric collections in Quiltster before you make it. Quiltster will even provide you with yardage!  You can also purchase kits designed by Quiltster Sellers right in the application!
