Judy and Brad Niemeyer designed the Amazon Star for foundation paper piecing over 10 years ago. The pattern was first designed when Judy was just beginning to adapt her patterns for pre-cut templates, stacking instructions, and strip piecing for her lone star blocks. Since that time, she has made tremendous advancement in her techniques and added a few more! The new pattern, while more expensive, includes full Template Layout Sheets allowing for layers of (8) pieces of fabric, floating points, her latest strip-piecing technique for lone star construction, smart corners, and also uses less fabric than the original design.
The Baby Bella was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project does take a little time and introduces quilters to several Quiltworx techniques, but all of the seams are straight, there are no Y-seams or curved seams, and the result is an adorable miniature lone star block for you to enjoy.
The foundation papers for the Baby Bella were designed by Quiltworx. The instructions included herein describe the process of making quilt. Additional papers are available for purchase to increase the size of the pattern or make another quilt.
