New York Beauty

The New York Beauty block is usually used to make large quilts – but our aim was to complete just 4 blocks which could be made into a cushion. So this was just a ‘taster’ to see if we liked the technique enough to embark on a much larger project.

We used foundation piecing to form the ‘rays’ and then looked at several different methods of tackling the curved piecing required to complete the block.

We were given a choice of two different layout and as you can see the results are stunning.

I had great day, lots of skills learnt and a finished project that sits proudly on my sofa.
