New York Beauties cont.

July 30, 2008

So I finished up the last corner:

New york beauty 4

And I think I like this arrangement the best:

New york beauty 4 of 4

Next is sewing it all together and figuring out a border to add as it’s going to end up measuring @ 11″, an inch and a half shy. Hrm…

I’m also preparing my paper piecing tutorials for posting shortly. I’ve got 4 all together. All loaded with nice big photos to help you through. There will be one beginners pattern, two multi-pieced patterns, how to line up your wonky triangle seams, and finally sewing multiple inset curves like the ones I just finished in the New york beauty blocks.

I love how this one is turning out. My favorite part is the juxtaposition of the fun bright prints contained within such an art-deco inspired structure. It creates such a neat balance which I’m always striving for in my crafting.
