Judy and Brad Niemeyer designed the layout, instructions, and foundation papers for the Queen size Lakeshore Hosta. A collection of fabrics designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer called Tonga Batik Traditions was selected to make the sample shown on the cover. 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 auditioning application that Quiltworx has developed with a software development firm to bring to the Quilting Industry. With Quiltster, you can load fabrics into spaces on a quilt design to see what it looks like before completed.
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!
