I'm not sure I like my color choices - only myself to blame for that!!!
Next block - #5 - will be designed by John Adams over at Quilt Dad.
As you may remember, last year I tried my hands on New York Beauty blocks. Piecing those blocks are not the same as piecing squares together; they have scary curves!!!
These are the first ones I made... I'm far from happy with them; they are wonky and no way they turned out the size they were supposed to be; 6.5 inches square. :((
I decided to make them different, by omitting the two curves at each side of the center/points, cut the two pieces a little bit bigger for so to trim the block to the right size later. This is how they turned out;
Still a bit wonky, but I should get some good practise working on those, before I proceed to the more complicated ones - like those I made first... :)
To those of you who makes those blocks; do you prefer hand- or machine piecing?
