New York Blooms

Hi all, taken me longer to add to my two previous blocks due to my hand surgery but I have now completed four, next step is to decided if this is the configuration I am happy with or not, then whether to sash or not and I intend to do a made fabric border of course!!


After I had made two of them I wasn't happy with the result but after encouragement from a fellow blogger I thought I really should persevere and make the four.  I think part of the problem was that this is quite different from my usual quilting and patchwork so I had to get my head around just going with the flow instead of working with set pieces. Also had it not been fro Helen very kindly sending me another lovely piece of the Manhattan subway fabric I could have been in trouble!

More sewing time on this planned for tomorrow and hope I have another post quite soon.
Hope everyone has a good week.

Loving your New York Blooms! Baby steps is good... just take those 15 minutes each day to try anything new... ;-) I love where these are going.

Wonderful! Love the almost rose like design that emerges too

Thank you ladies for your very welcome comments - and Helen I think I will have enough of the subway fabric to do what I have planned! I am just about to post again with a different arrangement. Interested to see what you think about this.
