New York Beauty QAL: Block 0

I’ve joined the New York Beauty QAL. Why? Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE paper piecing. Plus, it will be a great way to use up some of my stash. I could have used it to use up some of my scraps, but I wanted everything to be really matchy matchy. I might go back later and use my scraps. I am not making four of each block to make the full circle…that requires too much matchy matchy fabric. Plus, I do not need to make a full quilt.

This picture is extremely yellow. The block is yellow and gray, even though the grays look green. I’ll get better pictures next time.

Most of the fabric is from a fat quarter bundle that I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics quite a while ago. There are a couple that are very poor quality, but most of the others don’t feel too bad.

This was my first EVER attempt at curves and I am proud to say that it turned out extraordinarily well. Everybody says pin, pin, and then pin some more. And that is exactly what I did.

My goal is to not fall behind in this QAL and I think since it’s only one block ever week or so, I should be able to meet that goal.

      You hate paper piecing! I love it because there’s a line to sew on! I don’t have to worry about seam allowances. 🙂 What do you not like about it?
