New York Beauty Class

On Monday, eleven gals from my quilt guild took a class on making the New York Beauty quilt block. A gal from the Columbus, IN guild gave the lesson. We started at 9:30 and went on into the day - until we had to leave to feed a dog or take a nap!

Photos are of gals working on their blocks - Rita, Sue K. and Dotty.

Shots of Sue W. and myself - with our finished blocks.

I made two more blocks on Tuesday morning and made another block this morning - set them together with black sashing strips, dug up some batting and backing and made the binding - and now it's ready for someone to quilt!

This is also a NYB piece I made a couple of years ago, using Asian inspired fabrics - daughter Tracy is holding it.

Till next time - stay well and warm. . . and quilt, if you can!

P.S. Dates on photos above are wrong - camera glich? Or Joan glich? (The latter, I fear!)

Hi Joan

What wonderful New York Beauty. Paper Piecing has become my favorite method lately. I love the perfection you get with it. Nice job.
