Here is a simple, free New York Beauty pattern for all of you Beginners to try. Use it to practice your curved seams and paper piecing before attempting the more complex patterns in my New York Beauty Pattern Series. This block is 8" x 8" finished and will fit together beautifully with all the other blocks in the series. The center and middle arcs of all of the New York Beauty patterns match up to form perfect outer and inner circles. Make a quilt of all the same block or use several different blocks in the series for a quilt of great visual interest. You will need to make four of these blocks to complete the circle block which is 16" x 16" when finished. Circle diameter is 14". Block can be used for quilts, pillows, wall hangings, and table runners. Use "200 New York Beauty Quilt Layouts" for quilt suggestions. New York Beauty Block Series can be used as a block of the month. Knowledge of foundation paper piecing as well as sewing curves is required. All content Copyright 2016 Tobacco Shed Quilts - K.G.
