New York Beauty 03 – NEW today!
- super spike-y
Hmmm. Can it be both? YES!
Monkey thinks we have found the answer to make everyone happy!
New York Beauty 03 is very spike-y with 2 arcs, and . . .
. . . it has alternate corners to eliminate both arcs and simplify the look.
This is perfect if you want to use a fabric with a large motif that will not fit smaller shapes.
I have used subdued colors in these examples to make a change from the usual bright/bold NY Beauties which have been popular in recent years.
These blocks look good no matter what colors you choose.
New York Beauty with Inklingo
- A Choice of Layouts
The Inklingo PDF has hundreds of pages to print on fabric with all of the different shapes. You just have to find the page you want, and print!
- Combo Layouts
Print all of the shapes at the same time on several fabrics and mix and match. The printing only takes a few minutes. Then, you play with color!
- Rotary Cutter or Scissors
Most of us will use a rotary cutter (great for curves), but scissors make it portable. There are speed cutting tips in the Sunflower Quilt Design Book —free with any NYB shape collection.
- Precise Lines
Cut on the lines, sew on the lines. Every shape has stitching lines and matching marks to make the pinning and sewing easy.
- Machine or Hand
Sew New York Beauty by machine if you need speed, and sew by hand for relaxation and portability.
When we introduced NYB 02 on the blog, we showed you how New York Beauty is easier with Inklingo than with any other method. There is more detail there than in this announcement today.
Combo 1 has all the shapes for one New York Beauty 03.
We love combo layouts so much, we designed 8 different ones for NYB 03.
Of course you can print the shapes separately too.
These are all NYB 03. Some have the large and small arc shapes, and some don’t.
The alternate corner shape and alternate quarter circle add to the fun.
<drum roll> You can also use the new corner shape with NYB 01 and NYB 02, and the new quarter circle with NYB 01. How cool is that?
