New York Beauty Quilt Along – Week 10 Block 9

This post is part of the New York Beauty Quilt Along
To see schedule and tutorials for all 10 blocks in the series, check here! 

Well everyone, today is the last day of the series. First off, I want to thank everyone for following along and posting your completed New York Beauty blocks to the Flickr group. The amount of talent, even from first-time paper piecers, has been astounding! It was also great that everyone was so helpful and supportive, especially with asking and answering questions in the group. Thank you for making this a great success!!

The last block’s tutorial was written by Lindsay from Lindsay Sews. Lindsay has some great tips in her post about how to keep the same color in the end of your block, as for the start of your next one (if you are making 4 of them). Click on over here to see the full tutorial!

Thank you to all of the wonderful guest posters who spent a lot of time on the tutorials to make sure everyone would be able to follow along. We could not have done it without you! Take a bow! 🙂

    Thank you for organising this QAL, I would never have thought a couple of months ago that I would be capable of turning out NYB blocks and here I am a bit behind but not phased by the coming blocks at all! Congrats too to all the contributors who have made this such a great experience.

    Thanks a lot for sharing the knowledge, with pleasure I collected all the blocks and the tutorials and I’m looking forward to start sewing! Is there a final tutorial planned?

    Thanks for the wonderful blocks. An alternative to your paper, which may color off on fabrics, might be Carol Doak’s Paper Piecing paper. She developed it after 25 years of teaching paper piecing. You can find out more about the paper, as well as help with determining sizes of fabric to cut for your blocks. Her methods of sewing and assembly of blocks assures a top notch quilt with matched pieces of blocks every time. You will find her at

    Again, thanks so much for these awesome blocks you have all created. They truly give me lots of ideas for quilts, but also table runners, pillows, and even placemats with partial blocks.


Comments make my day and I love to reply!
