This quilt block is called New York Beauty. I always thought it would be too hard, but after taking the paper piecing class last fall, I decided to give it a try. It can really be a pretty block.
So, here are the finished blocks I showed in a Wednesday WOW post. Nice, huh? Wanna see what I did with them?
I made a shirt-tail on this green top! This shirt has been an old favorite of mine, except that it had a gathered band at the bottom. When you are getting older and becoming short and round, the last thing you want is a gathered band focusing on your hipline!!!!
Well, the focus is still at the hipline, but hopefully it will be on these bee-yoo-ti-ful blocks and not on my – ahem – generous anatomy!
