Quilt Kit - Quiltworx Fire Island Hosta Desert Rose
This is a kit made out of the Desert Rose fabrics....designed by Judel herself. Judy and Brad Niemeyer designed the layout, instructions, and foundation papers for the Fire Island Hosta. A collection of fabrics designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures called Desert Rose were 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 cover quilt was quilted using a digitized quilting design from Quiltworx.com.
Techniques Used and learned my making this quilt are:
- Curved Piecing
- Cutting and Preparing Foundation Papers
- Fire Island Hosta Leaf Assembly
- Floating Points
- Paper Piecing Template
- Paper Piecing Tutorial
- S Curves
- Strip Piecing
Quilt Size: 74″ x 74″ (this pattern cannot be used to make the Queen size Fire Island Hosta because the layout is different) Pattern Includes: Instructions, Cover Sheet, Yardage Information, Foundation Papers
This kit comes with all the fabrics, including the binding fabric and the pattern/papers. As an added bonus, I have cut all of the fabrics into the correct size strips as indicated by the pattern and have grouped and organized them by Unit. All you will have to do is cut your papers and use the templates and template layout sheets to sub-cut your strips, then you'll be ready to sew! I have added a small fee for this to the price of this kit in addition to the fabric & pattern.
NOTE: If you'd like to have me complete the cutting of the papers and fabrics so it comes to you ready to sew, please add a comment/note to check out and I will send you an invoice for an additional cutting fee of $100.
There are no returns on cut fabric kits.
