summerlove new york beauty
I made this quilt for my cousin who was married this past Saturday. It's the New York Beauty from Peggy Martin's Craftsy class, Quick Strip Paper Piecing. It's a fun class. I whole heartedly recommend it. I made the pinwheel quilt from this class too. I love using Craftsy because you always have the videos to refer to if you get mixed up on a technique.
The fabrics are from Pat Bravo's Summerlove line. These colors remind me of the bride so I'm hoping she loves them too.
The back is a jumble of leftover summerlove yardage.
With all the sharp points in the piecing, I wanted to try to use the quilting to soften the look a bit. I went with a scallopy (yes autocorrect that is the word I want to use) stitching line and randomly spaced them an inch to three inches apart in a pale blue thread.
Don't worry, I don't have another cousin getting married next weekend so I won't be showing up next Monday with another wedding gift. But the kids will be starting school mid week so I am hoping I'm back soon with lots of finished projects.
