New York Beauty

These are the first three (and only) blocks I've completed from a workshop I took from Linda Hahn back in April or May. Her method of sewing the curved seam works really well and so far, each one has been perfect. These are Kansas Troubles fabrics. I was a little unsure about using them and having the center of the block the same as the outside. And sure enough, when I got to the workshop, everyone else was using fabrics that were a lot jazzier than mine. But now that I've done some of the piecing, I like the effect. I was planning for the completed project to be a wall hanging for the sewing/guest room that I wil be remaking my older son's bedroom into (we refer to it as "The Shrine" since it's almost exactly the way he left it six years ago when he went off to college--minus the clothes on the floor, of course). But we recently got the good news that he will be relocating from LA to Brooklyn by the end of the summer for a salaried position with health and dental benefits. So this New York Beauty may be just the thing he needs for his new apartment.


  1. That is just gorgeous! I bet you're happy about your son -- hope his new job goes well!

  2. That is really beautiful. I love those blocks so much! I think that you son will love that quilt for his apartment!

  3. I love the colors in this and think the interior color is perfect! It does look like the crown on the Statue of Liberty and will be perfect for your son!

  4. Wow. They are gorgeous. It looks so very difficult. Congrats on your son moving closer to home. NYC is a nice weekend trip.

  5. Congrats to your son! I love that block--I want to do a NY Beauty quilt to honor my dad, who was from NYC. Can't wait to see more of it!

  6. I like the curves and the matching center. Congrats on your son landing a job with benes and $$.
