Jan,11th..New York Beauty

This week I have been busy working on a New York Beauty. It is to go to My Mom’s sewing circle to be hand quilted. It will then be auctioned off for a school fund raiser .


I am paper piecing the points in the block and in the border. I find it fun to paper piece. I took classes off of Craftsy that really helped me out. I took two classes,one of Carol Daok,and the other from Peggy Martin. They are both very good teachers with fun projects.This is one of Peggy’s patterns.


At first I was going to do all blocks light on the outside of points ,but then I lost my distinctive corner. I used a black back ground piece


It is fun watching a quilt top starting to show its design.


The first outside border I am going to use the black with the little blue circles. It made the center pop more than the black marbled.


the center piece is finished ready for the borders.

My Camellia’s are blooming. They are a lovely flower!!

Keep warm!! Deb

    Wow, it’s beautiful. I really like the pattern you used and the colors. . . and getting it hand-quilted will make make it absolutely perfect. How wonderful of you to donate such a lovely item to the school fundraiser. I bet it will sell really well.
