New York Beauty Quiltalong update

I'm not gonna lie - I am ADDICTED! I began the New York Beauty Quiltalong last night and completed one square:

Then tonight I thought I would do another in a contrasting pattern:

Then I thought I'd experiment with other colours, and well... I got carried away! I'd made 4 squares before I knew where I was:

It's just gone together so easily. I love how I don't have to think about it, once you're in the zone you just keep sewing, folding, trimming pressing, sewing, folding, trimming, pressing, etc etc...

However, this is next week's block:

eeeek! :-O So this may be famous last words, but as of right now I LOVE New York Beauty!

I'm linking up with:


  1. Hahaha! It is easy to think hmmmm I'll just make one then you get carried away and before you know it you've made a whole quilts worth =D

  2. very nice. there is a new york beauty in my future.....some day when I get brave......

  3. How exciting! It looks like a hard block yet you said it is so easy. Was is done by paper piecing? Will you be doing the entire quilt in purples? Peggy

  4. Looks great - love your fabric choices. I so want to start, but also want to finish 2 other quilts that are at the sashing stage...

  5. Your NY Beauty is gorgeous! I love what you did with the contrasting pattern!

  6. Aren't these blocks addicting? I love your choice of the purples.

  7. This looks stunning, purple is my favourite colour and the contrasting sections really complement each other.

    I've never tried paper piecing, but if you can do the first block (which you obviously can!) I'm sure that you can do the next too.
