Cabaret is a foundation paper pieced design by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer.  The Hoffman Batiks in Garnet Glow and Driftwood, inspired this dark, vintage brooch or Flapper-style hair piece reminiscent of a Speakeasy or Cabaret style performer. The layers of curves and spikes in the foundation paper piecing and Broadway curtain themed border make this design one that is sure to be a conversation piece.

Intermediate foundation paper piecing skills are needed to make this design! Many of the units in the center of the quilt are featured in videos on the Quiltworx Youtube channel, however, so quilters will have a great resource for getting started on this design.  This pattern includes all of the foundation papers and instructions required to make this project.  If you would like to make a second project, Replacement Papers are available under the Buy Now button.  We also have support products like Digitized Quilting Designs, notions, rulers, and packages to expand this quilt to a larger size.

  • To expand this to a 118″ King, add a Group H, 118″ King Border of your choice listed under the Buy Now Button
