I’ve only been to New York City once, but I absolutely loved it and I will eventually make it back to the city.
So, instead of taking a vacation, I joined a New York Beauty quilt along.
I absolutely love the finished product. It could be a table runner, a wall hanging, or just something to lay on the edge of a bed. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it.
I love the layout. I did spend a bit of time figuring out where each of the blocks would go and I’m very pleased with how they flow/don’t flow together.
I also love the quilting. The dark stands out against the pieced back really well. I was in the middle of quilting this when my machine broke. My feed dogs were like halfway down and I don’t know how that happened. When I tried to fix it, they went all the way down and wouldn’t come back up. I ended up renting a machine while mine was getting fixed so I could finish this. I was a little worried about switching machines over halfway through, but it turned out to not be a problem at all.
Have you ever been to New York City? Anywhere in New York? What did you think?
