The Fire Island Hosta quilt pattern was designed by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer. It was the first pattern in a new line of Leaf inspired designs that include Judy’s latest paper piecing technique, involving curved-line paper piecing. How do you trim a quarter-inch seam without an Add-A-Quarter Ruler, and with perfection every time? Well, this pattern teaches you how! You will also learn strip piecing, curved piecing, floating points and S-curves.
