Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Wednesday 4 March 2020

WIP Wednesday

I’m on a finishing roll!! I pulled out  my unfinished project of New York Beauty blocks. I discovered that I have 26 finished blocks, so I need to make 2 more. But in the meantime I laid them all out on the living room carpet and sewed together what I have so far.

These blocks date back to the year 2012. They were a combination of 2 different challenges. One was a challenge to sew up different New York Beauty blocks and the other was a colour challenge. Judy at Patchwork Times posted a picture every month and each month we were to make a project using the colours in the picture. So each month from January to June of the year 2012 I made New York Beauty blocks in the colours for the month. You can see a post with the picture for one of the colour challenges here. The story behind it is quite funny. I’ve chosen the last 2 blocks I’m going to do and have printed off the foundations for them. 
 I just have to find fabrics that will coordinate with what was done over 8 years ago. Then this one can go into the ever growing pile of quilts waiting their turn on the long arm. I’m linking up with the Needle and Thread Network WIP Wednesday.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
