Zen Garden was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing and constructing an exploded star quilt layout. The project requires (24) diamond blocks. We chose the Shimmering Star Mixer Block for this design and added the Striped Pieced Mixer Border. The quilt requires paper piecing and traditional piecing skills, including curved piecing, to complete. Pattern Size: 80"x80". Pattern includes: Instructions, Cover Sheet, Yardage Information, Foundation Papers.
