My Year of Judy Niemeyer Obsession - Quilt #2
Pieced April 3, 2001 through May 23, 2011
This was quilt #2 completed in my Year of Judy Niemeyer Obsession. I got most of it done at a Half Squares retreat in Smithville Texas. I quilted it on June 1, 2011.
This is a great beginner paper piecing quilt because it has large pieces and straight lines. I taught this class at Fabrics Etcetera in Webster Texas.
For the border, somehow I ended up with 4 extra triangles so I pieced them into the border continuing the interior pattern. You can see this when I laid out all the pieces on the design wall. I also encroached on my neighbor's wall!
The photo below shows the triangles going into the border.
I chose an allover quilting design using varigaated thread.
