New York Beauty

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The points came out very accurate. I finished the top in under a week. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Like I said before, just take your time. I referenced the instructor video several times while I was working on the quilt. Don't be afraid to change things up, this is a good quilt to be creative on. The instructions were perfect, and with lots of border options and placement options for the blocks. Thanks Peggy!

What you will need

  • Materials list for the course lesson was very accurate.

lovely work - so neat and accurate. The colours work well too. Your boarder if excellent - did you have fun making it? foundation work is sensational - until you have to pull off the paper :)
Jim Franz answered:
I just sort of watched TV while I pulled the paper. It made it go easier! Thanks for your nice comments
K Lee 2Strings asked:
Beautifully done! It's a fantastic quilt. Love the fabrics and the color combinations, and the piecing is so precise. Impressive!
Jim Franz answered:
I don't really think you can get these kinds of points without paper piecing, at least I wouldn't want to try it! Thanks for your comments!
Pamillia asked:
What a beautiful piece you have created. Thank you for sharing this with us Jim.
Jim Franz answered:
Maybe it'll inspire someone else to take the course. Unfortunately, my Aunt now wants one in Red, White, and Blue! :-\
