The Pepper Dish was designed by Brad and Judy Niemeyer. A collection of yellow, red, greens, and purple fabrics designed by Island Batik were used to make the quilt shown on the cover. This quilt was designed for foundation paper piecing. Curved piecing, traditional piecing, and appliqué skills are required to finish the quilt top after the foundation piecing is completed. The pattern was written with beginners in mind and has many illustrations and graphics which compliment the written instructions.
