For a few weeks now I've been
I have always admired New York Beauty blocks and always told myself "no way will I ever attempt them" but having recently tried paper piecing, I've decided to explore it further....what better way than QAL! The New York Beauty Paper Pieced QAL doesn't start until March 5th, so that gives me time to play catch up on many projects and get familiar with paper piecing.
Next up on my list of projects to get caught up on or finished with are the blocks for the Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL with a goal to finish the quilt top on schedule and post photos in the flickr pool by March 18th. Above is block five that I just finished. At the same time, I need to get six blocks done for the 1st quarter 3x6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee. Also, I'll be getting underway with the New Beginnings Mini Quilt Swap. In preparation of the NYB QAL I've decided to do some paper piecing for my mini quilt and with a mailing deadline of March 19th....eeks, I need to get cracking!
