step 1 nyb....new york beauty


step one consists of choosing fabrics, preparing them as you wish, and cutting the right sizes for one block. They say cut squares for A, B, and C- I enlarged what size they suggested. So, I cut (1) 6.5 inch square, (1) 10.5 by 11 inch square and (6) 2 inch by 5 inch rectangles of one color and (5) 2.5 by 5 inch rectangles of a second color plus another 2 inch by 5 inch of the second color for a total of 7 rectangles. I show them with the foundation pieces they go with.

It also includes cutting apart one blocks worth of components. That would be the A, B, and C mentioned above.

pretty easy so far!

I have a paper pieced (Karen Stone) NYB in progress somewhere. This makes me want to dig it out and sew.

Since you talked about this project awhile back...I've been thinking about starting another one. *IF* I do...I'd vary my colors more than I did with my first one. But you're right...it's so easy. And no ruffly paper noises! Good luck with yours, Cher!
