New York Beauty QAL Progress

Four more pretty blocks to share from the New York Beauty Quilt Along. I started timing myself to see just how long each of these little boogers was taking.

It takes at least 30 minutes for me to choose fabric for a block, then another 1 1/2 hours for piecing time. So, being the kind of girl I am, I decided to change the order of the blocks.

The quilt along sort of goes back and forth between an easier, then a more challenging block. Since I want to make progress at super-human speed, I'm going to start with the simplest block and work up to the hard ones. That should at least make me feel like I'm making faster progress, for a while.

I am very pleased with most of my color choices, even though every now and then I get the tiniest urge to supplement the stash with a little something new. Resistance is far.

Here's how they look on my design wall most of the time. I can keep up with my progress better when they are all neat and orderly.

But sometimes, I just have to play with them a bit. That's when I get really excited about where this project is going. This one is definitely going to be a keeper.


  1. Wonderful blocks....cant wait to see the finished quilt!!

  2. Beautiful! This just might inspire me to do more paper piecing...Timing? You are starting to sound like me!
