New York Beauty...




I am in a New York State of Mind...



I put my crown on...

it is time to get serious and finish my

New York Beauty Quilt





My NYB fabrics have been living in this 

suitcase for several years...






I am foundation paper piecing 

the arc units...







Once the arc unit is paper pieced...

I remove the papers and piece the block together.






4 arc blocks create a 16 inch NYB block...












Just love all those crowns... 

pieced and ready to go!






It is wonderful to have a design wall nearby

to help with color placement as you work...












At this point...105 NYB blocks 

pieced and on the wall.

Now I need to cut the side setting triangles...






I have used this chart for many years

for cutting triangles.





Yesterday I cut all of the side triangles...

here they are on the design wall...


I will be piecing this bad girl together today!


More to come...
