New York Beauty Quilt-A-Long - Block #1

As you may have noticed I haven't blogged for quite some days... That doesn't mean I have been lazy... I've been rather busy and I have quite a few projects to show.
I'll start with what I did today; block #1 (block 0) for the New York Beauty QAL, hosted by gogoKim. The block was 'published' March 5th, but no way could I decide on fabrics, not until this morning...
I was supposed to make one only, but look what I did; I made four! :)
Warning: Addictive!!!   

I have used the same four fabrics for all four blocks. It's amazing how fabrics/colors change a block, isn't it?

I haven't sewn the blocks together. I'll do that - I think (lol) when I have all the blocks.

This was the first block, easy to make.
The next block (block #5) is by Sara from Sew Sweetness (March 12). This one is a bit more tricky... Don't think I'll manage to make four in one day! :)

I have some finished UFO's too, but that will be for another post. I'll have to take photos first of all...

They look wonderful. I like your fabric combination especially how the upper right one turned out. I'm doing this quilt a long too. Everyone's blocks turned out great.

Those look wonderful! Fabrics can change a "look" of a block depending on where you place that.

Oh, my, Astrid! I find it funny that anybody would think you are lazy! When I think of you, I always think of you doing lots.
I really like how beautiful the blocks turned out. I would love to make a quilt from this pattern, but not even going to start until I have fewer things that need to be done. Love the different looks with the same fabric. Nice job.

Well done on your NYB blocks!
