Not much accomplished around here today.  I’ve been working on hand stitching my New York Beauties.  Above is another block.
And this is another one. (Sorry.  I think I should have ironed this before I took the picture.)  I love playing with my fabrics and sitting on the deck and stitching while I enjoy this beautiful weather.
Above is a look at four of them together.  This is not necessarily how they will end up in the finished quilt.  I just like to see how they look and watch the circle appear.
And here are the five blocks together.  I don’t have a plan or a pattern, but I’m having fun!  Hope you are having a great stitching day too.

  • Happy Scrappers meets Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop
  • AQS Quilt Week is the week of August 14-17 at DeVos Place Convention Center.  The Attic Window will have a vendor booth, so be sure and stop by.
ON ANOTHER NOTEiPatch has a multiple part Cloud Nine Tutorial.  Part 1 is here.  Click on the Tutorial tab for the rest of the instructions.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I really love your blocks! Your fabric choices are fabulous! I've only made one New York Beauty quilt. It was the result of a paper piecing class. I don't even have the quilt anymore. I displayed it in our Downtown Quilt Show last year and sold it as a result!

Your beauty, Caroll, is a beauty! I just love NYBs and your bright fabric choices are really fun. I always find that no plan is sometimes the very best plan!

I love your blocks!! These are on my someday list, but not any time soon! LOL

I love love your blocks! I have made NY Beauties before, but they weren't as pretty as your blocks. One thing that surprised me was that they were much easier than I had expected.

Those blocks are just beautiful but look so hard.
