NY Beauty QAL Block 5!

I actually made another block this weekend!  My second paper pieced attempt and I love it!  A new block (block 1) for New York Beauty was posted today and I hope that I can stay on track with this QAL!

I know that it sounds funny being excited over one block, but I spent 6 hours on Sunday moving lava rock from one side of the house to the other and I'm still not done.  I hate lava rock, so much that just looking at it in passing irritates me.  But I love flowers.  So therefore I need to move all of the lava rock from the garden that the previous owners put there.  This task, I'm sure, will consume most of my spare time until the weather turns nasty again and I really can't complain too much because I love this weather!  I hope you all are spending some great time outdoors!


  1. Nicely done - this is probably the hardest block of the set. Love the black/white setting you are using.

  2. I love the idea of black and white. I'll have to keep this in mind when I finally start mine (not until some other projects are finished). Good job!

  3. Thank you! I want to reverse this block too so I'm going to need to find some mostly-white prints. I think they'll look pretty neat back to back :)

  4. Great block, can't wait to see the others!


Your comments make my day!
