May’s block of the month is a favorite of mine. The New York Beauty block uses paper piecing and curved piecing.
If you’ve been following along I hope you’ve learned some new things along the way. What’s great about doing a sampler is trying many techniques and sometimes working out of your comfort zone. If you never make this block again, you will at least understand the technique behind how to assemble this ‘Beauty’-ful block. Plan out your colors or just make it scrappy. I decided to make mine resemble a color wheel – I love how it came out!
One of the items on the supply list for this block is an ‘Add-A-Quarter Ruler’. This ruler is optional but it’s inexpensive and you should be able to find it at your quilt shop or on Amazon here CM Designs Add-A-Quarter Ruler-6″ Yellow.
Please remember to post pictures to the flickr group I love seeing them! Thanks again to those of you that have posted your finished blocks or projects already!!! I love seeing all the different colors everyone is using!
