New York Beauty

While I was at the retreat last weekend, I put all my NY Beauty blocks together. It took me a while since I was being careful to match everything up  and have the setting pieces in the right order. I put all the blocks up on a design wall......some joker decided to add a little something to the layout.


Wonder who could have done that?????  Could it have been this lovely lady modeling her niece's new apron?



Yes, yes it was......and she pleaded guilty as charged. I kept piecing away ready to see it??



What???? You want to see more of it????



You're still not satisfied??? Ok, ok......here's the whole top.


 Now I have to get started on the borders and they are all paper pieced. It will be worth all the work though. The border really makes the whole quilt look extra special. Give me a few weeks and I will show you my progress. Have a good day!!
