Pattern Details

**NEWLY UPDATED!** This is a partially paper-pieced pattern for a 22" Mini Quilt. There are two versions to choose from and I plan to eventually offer add-on patterns, so you can add more variety to your New York Beauties. Enclosed, you will find all the pattern pieces you need and instructions. Some paper-piecing knowledge is required. I can point you towards some free tutorials, if you are still learning. Enjoy, and if you have questions contact me! Please check out my tutorials: Paper-piecing curved flying geese: Sewing tight curves: You may sell items made with this pattern on a small scale, but please credit me (Janice Ryan @ Better off Thread).

I'm Janice Ryan and I live in Los Angeles with my husband, 2 children and 4 cats (I'm not sure who creates more havoc when I try to sew-the children or the cats). Despite the Cali address and Irish name, I swear that I am genuine Pennsylvania Dutch (and, no, that is not the same as Amish-feel free to ask me about this!). I've been sewing for as long as I can remember (some of my early memories are of my mom and I designing and sewing clothing for my dolls). In my former life (that would be pre-kids), I lived the vagabond life of a costume designer for regional theater, got my MFA in Costume Design from Carnegie Mellon, and then rode off into the sunset to become a costumer for TV and film in sunny California. Although I've had a long-time love affair with my sewing machine (I love it enough that my detour into the dark world of bridal alterations didn't sway me), I didn't catch the quilting bug until I was pregnant with my son, 5 years ago. In all my free time (ha!) I also enjoy fixing up our 1927 English Tudor home, unapologetically indulging in chick-lit, and exploring my family tree. You can check out my blog at
