Quite a few more of the New York Beauty blocks were made over the past few weeks. Yesterday I put them all up on the design wall. With two more blocks, this would finish at 36″ x 42″.
Then just the Tiffany Lamp ones.
And then the Monet blocks.
I’m leaning towards making them separate quilts, although I do rather like the look of them all together. These will definitely be wall hangings rather than lap or bed-size quilts. If I add no more blocks, the Monet one would finish at 24″ while the Tiffany Lamp one would finish at 24″ x 36″.
These won’t be the end of the NYB blocks for me. I have loads more printed and ready to stitch. There’s something immensely satisfying about putting these blocks together – lots of curved piecing and lovely spiky points.

As fast as I put toys in the toy basket, he’s right there getting them back out.
