I've been combining 2 projects into one. I'm doing the New York Beauty sew along, in the colours of the colour challenges. I didn't start the NYB until March, so I only have that month's colours in there, so far. This particular sew along continues into May, but I just might keep my own going longer than that, using more variations of NYB blocks from EQ7 and also from an add on to EQ that I have by Karen Stone. I am hoping to average 2 of these blocks per week, which will give me enough by the end of the year for a good sized bed quilt. I love the colours for April's palette, and the story behind it, which you can read here, is quite funny. And best yet, they are commonalities with March's palette, so everything in the NYB will work. As soon as I saw this month's colours, I went upstairs and pawed through my batiks and fat quarters, and I think I have the beginnings, at least, of the fabrics necessary for April. So, now I can finish off the last of the NYB squares for last week, and I have a fresh start for tomorrow, when the new one comes out.
