More New York Beauties


You all are probably tired of seeing the continuing saga of the New York Beauty blocks.  However, between dealing with my dad's death and all the preparations to move, I'm not getting much other quilting done.  While I have neither time nor concentration for free motion quilting, I can still sit and hand-piece these in the evening when I finally try to relax.

These are actually the result of two weeks work.  Fifteen new ones.  Makes the total 126 out of 196.

I'm linking up for Sew & Tell Friday over at Amylouwho's.  Be sure to see all the other beauties people have to share.

  7. I'm too scared to even google the pattern because I know I would look at the difficulty and just despair.

    I really like that you're giving us progress updates. When you get closer to the end we can all cheer you on to the finish line.

    Gorgeous fabric combos as always Michelle.

  14. Its good to have projects to fall back on when you're unable to work on your primary ones. Frankly, with so much going on, its probably difficult at best to prioritize!

  21. As you probably know I LOVE NYB & have actually planned to make the Orange Peel quilt from Karen's book. I am going to use all the fabrics from the CW HOB quilts that we have made, so it will be a memorial also to the Fallen Heroes of the military.
