NY Beauty test block

It came out too small! I was too lazy to measure my template to make sure it was to scale. Anyway, here it is:

I really struggled with the rays. I either cut my wedges too big or too small and found that they need to be fairly accurate in size or else it's hard to know where to place them.

I didn't have any trouble with my curved seams though. I pinned like crazy and sewed right over my small applique pins.


  1. UGH. I'm jealous. It's so awesome!

  2. Love your practice block. I like the fabrics you used.

  3. I like the colors! and your points came out beautifully!
