Project

New York Beauty

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!

quilt-a-lot asked:
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.

Maybe it'll inspire someone else to take the course. Unfortunately, my Aunt now wants one in Red, White, and Blue! :-\
