New York Beauty Samples

Out came the sewing machine again, some of my favourite scraps and some black fabric.
The first block was a disaster but block one and two started to improve, I noticed as long as the scraps were long and wide enough the sharp wedges would all be covered. Ive really enjoyed doing these, anything to do with New York Beauties patterns I'm starting to look out for and get addicted to. I remember looking at blogs before where other quilters have sewn New York Beauties and I thought how an earth was that done, I would never be able to do that, but proved myself wrong and enjoying doing something different. The great big roll of freezer paper is really coming in handy, I'm so glad I bought this about two years ago despite other needle workers and shop owners mentioning
"Now what do you need all that for!", goes to show everything you get is used and needed someday. Let me know what you think to these first few blocks.
