There is so much you can do with the new New York Beauty blocks!
These quilt layouts are just a starting point. All of these happen to be symmetrical, and none use the small arc.
New York Beauty 03 with alternate quarter circle (no small arc).
Notice how the large blue arcs create a border effect.
No small arcs. The green arcs create a border effect.
You don’t have to follow this blog for very long before you realize how much I love designing borders!
This reminds me of an old Baby Bunting pattern.
The four corners would look good on a quilt with a completely different center too.
No arcs! The blocks are simplified by using the alternate corner and quarter circle provided in NYB 03.
The white background makes the spikes really pop.
From the center: curvey grey border (medallion effect), NYB border, piping, binding.
