Yes!! It is week 4 of the New York Beauty Quilt Along!! Stop by the Flickr Group and be sure to add all your progress photos!

The tutorial for today is from Kati of From the Blue Chair. The tutorial for her block, Block 8, can be found here. This block has very thin points, and it looks highly effective using the paper piecing technique!

I made my blocks before the tutorial went up, and I have to be honest and tell you that I had to start over about 3 times. The previous blocks in the sew along were sewn from left to right, and so I kept trying to do that with this block. However, due to the direction of the points (i.e. the far right is dominant all all points after fall behind), this one has to be started from the right end of the block moving left. Doh! :-)

But, I made it out okay! All assembled, this is a really cool block and does look like a blade! Thank you for the great tutorial Kati! Check back next week for Block 7!
