Sewing my favourite New York Beauty blocks has been so much fun.
Do you recognise the pattern I am making?
It only has four blocks so I am almost finished.
The dots of colour on the selvedge help with thread selection for the quilting. The fabric sparkles so I also chose threads which do. I am off to quilt; hopefully tomorrow I can show you the finished project!
I'm a quilt and pattern designer, award winning quilt maker, author and teacher. Since 1989, I have published well over 600 quilting patterns in magazines such as McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quilt World, The Canadian Quilter and Quilter's Connection. I have contributed designs to 16 different books and co-authored Canadian Heritage Quilting with Diane Shink. My latest book, Quilting Beauties Come In All Shapes and Sizes, was published by AQS in 2015. Since 2018, I have been an Island Batik Ambassador. I am a dealer for Aurifil thread, and enjoy teaching workshops as time permits.
