Amazing Use of New York Beauties

I just stumbled across this quilt on Flickr and had to share it with you all. It really struck me as so beautiful.

by flickr user Emma_Louise.

The New York Beauty blocks used, here, seem a bit easier than the ones many of us did for February. The smallest pieced curve looks to be bigger (at least bigger than what I pieced). That's where I had most of my troubles and it sounds like, from the comments, others did, too. I also absolutely love the detail in the corner of the block to form such an awesome center.

I think I could manage four more NYBeauty blocks to have something as stunning as this!


  1. This is beautiful. I found if I pieced the inner circle to the inner arc first, things were easier to manage after that! LOL

    I too like the bigger size block. Sew much easier on the fingers!

    There is a flick group dedicated to New York Beauties

    There are some incredibly colorful and beautiful blocks, quilts, purses etc there!

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

  2. It is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
