The three new New York Beauty Shape Collections can be combined to make some spectacular quilts. We have shown you a few symmetrical layouts in previous blog messages. (See “Topics” in the right sidebar, or use the search box above the header.)

Even if you don’t use Electric Quilt, we think you will love playing with New York Beauty blocks.

 

These are the 12 New York Beauty blocks in the Electric Quilt project file (free download, below).

These two quilt layouts use identical blocks. The ones below are set “on point” with plain squares. I think they look like flowers.

 

On Point Setting

The Inklingo 6 inch On-Point Shape Collection makes setting blocks on point easy. Print the triangles for the edges on the fabric with Inklingo and have straight grain in all the right places with no math or measuring!

Mix and Match for “New New Yorks”

Since Inklingo makes the preparation and sewing so easy, you can be more adventurous designing the blocks.

In some blocks, the alternate corner and quarter circle from NYB 03 are used to create variations of NYB 01 and NYB 02.

The file includes these 12 blocks, but no quilts. You can design those yourself!

They do include quilt designs.

Sale ends at Midnight Tonight!

I have extended the sale price on NYB 03 until tonight at midnight (Saturday, June 9) because I was not able to post this sooner.

When you buy any New York Beauty shapes to print on fabric, there is no charge for the Sunflower Quilt Design Book, so be sure to order it too. (Details)

(The special offer on the handbook is still available too.)

I can hardly wait to see what you do with these blocks. Let me know if you show NYB quilt layouts on your blog, okay?

Please stay tuned! (Or subscribe, right sidebar). I hope you have a great weekend designing and sewing quilts.
