This is the Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters facebook challenge. Join the group to follow the fun! #2017 Challenge #1 had just a couple of parameters…no rulers, use existing or “challenging” fabric from your stash to de-construct a New York Beauty, and finish in 30 days. So here it is, 36″ wide x 46″ long using traditional elements from a NYB block, which most of us normally paper-piece. I love paper-piecing. Honestly. You simply cannot make a mistake, so this was a challenge, and no, I didn’t use a ruler, but have discovered that I’ve gone so long without using one that my lines actually look pretty straight without a ruler. Who knew?
Now on to tackle the purple/yellow/gold blocks from a couple of weeks ago!
