I basically spent the whole day yesterday making New York Beauty blocks! I was having so much fun I just couldn't stop...
This is the second block I made. It was a simpler version of the block, so I chose a Heather Bailey fabric that had a strong curve in it and fussy cut to add dimension to the block.
Hubby was watching me pin this last night and thought it was hysterically funny that I used SO many pins... there are 31 pins holding those pieces together! Normally I hate pinning, and I never pin when I'm piecing straight seams. But curves like that need those pins!
All four blocks I made yesterday, one each of the four variations I plan to use for the quilt!
Today's plan is to organize a couple other projects- the Park Slope curved log cabin and Heather Bailey wonky log cabin- and along with the New York Beauty blocks do one block per day (of each project!) until they're done!
