This post is a little late. But better late then never. 🙂
New York Beauty…. I think I am going to be making one of these now.
I thought for this one, I would go a little more in depth of my thought process so bear with me…
I wanted to start by dividing this block but I didn’t want to just go with curves or straight lines. I love how scrolls can look especially when they intertwine and go behind things… The first thing I started with was the middle diamond. I was unsure of how this beauty was set with the other blocks so thought this was a safe way to go regardless of how they were set.
I then drew one wavy line on each side going “under the piecing”. I know, it’s another start and stop or traveling in the ditch to make it work but I think its worth it. I then echoed back. I’m normally not worried about making both sides match perfectly. (life is too short for that) I then added the two scrolls coming from the middle of the diamond.
When I divide up a quilt, I need to LOVE the it. So much so that if that were the only thing I was going to quilt, I’d be happy with it.
The center or bottom right area, I divided up with come curves. Looks like a fan. I would also stitch in the ditch everything.
Stay tuned for what happens next……
What will you create?
