wip wednesday

this is what is my ny beauty blocks are turning into

i worked on it last weekend. i had the blocks done and they were just sitting there.  i haven't been inspired to make any more of the blocks (maybe in the future) i decided to make a pillow



half bound... 
i had a little problem getting the two ends to meet.  i tried using this method from jaybird quilts but it didn't work out so well. she makes it seem easy and it really wasn't. so i fudged a little and i think it will work. now i just have to hand sew the binding to the back. not really my favorite part.
i worked on other things as well...i cut the strips for the groove quilt. i'm linking up with freshly pieced.

happy sewing


  1. NYB blocks are some of my faves and this one is stunning! I think the colors you've chosen are just fantastic! Awesome job!

  2. Beautiful blocks! I'm yet to attempt them, but maybe one day I'll brave up and do it :)

  3. Wow, your NY Beauties are stunning. Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday.
