Many of the quilts in this book feature blocks that have incorporated the basic New York Beauty block.
Almost all of the blocks can be mixed, matched, and mingled, which will provide you with many more design possibilities.
You will be amazed at how quickly and easily the blocks can be constructed. You will use a combination of template-cut fabric shapes and paper foundation-piecing techniques.
Take your time as you make the first block so you can get the hang of it and become familiar with my way of piecing. The projects are presented in order of complexity, and I know you can make them all.
