I had a few minutes before dinner to draft another New York Beauty block. After drawing two arcs at 5 and 9 inches, I divided the section between those arcs into 10 degree wedges. I am fond of my pencil tied to a string and school geometry protractor. They seem to be getting the job done pretty well.
The curved seam sewing on this one didn't go quite a smoothly as the first two blocks. I'm sure it will get easier with practice. Still loving the effect. One block at a time. Kurt had to go to work for a conference call with India, maybe I will draw another block? Maybe I'll just snuggle up in bed and fall asleep with a good book.
I did make a Pinerest page
with ideas and tutorials about how to make New York Beauty blocks. Check it out if you want to see more NYB blocks.
Looks great! Curved piecing is never easy although I have found I am getting better with practice.
Hopped over to your Pinterest page but of course within seconds you are blocked with a Join up to Pintreest message etc so can't see the actual blocks, I did manage a quick peek at a very colourful one which you'd pinned and it looked great.
Another fantastic block!
Beautifully drafted and constructed.
So pretty! You are on a roll. See - kids can use that math after school =)
I'll go and have a look
Wow! Another one? I can't believe how easily you seem to draft these blocks. They are all gorgeous.
