    I have my pattern for block 1 printed out, starring at me.

    the question is a simple one, Looking at section B I have my fabrics all picked out.
    the question is, do I make each of the 4 blocks identical? Or make that section different so it is really scrappy?

    Sorry it took so long to reply after work I rushed home made dinner for the family then off to women's Bible study, then home and make fudge cherry cheesecake brownies for work tomorrow.
    So, scrappy or not to be scrappy that is the question (sorry I'm sleep deprived) to make all four the same colors would be easier for cutting and make for quicker assembly...then there is the 40 blocks all different. In many of the modern NYB's they are all different but I've also seen a more controlled scrappy look.
    I think I am going to do all different. I don't know if that helps or not? But I am looking forward to seeing what you decide.

    This is a good place to share ideas, so I thought I'd tell you what I'm going to do. I'm trying to use up my stash, and many pieces are fat quarters. I'm going to place my pieces onto four fat quarters stacked up, and cut out the pieces for the block that I'm doing. I will then piece them together. Each block will have basically the same fabrics (I might throw a different one in for contrast) but it will be in a different location in the block. I hope that this makes sense. And, I hope it works when I try it.

    This weekend is our Thanksgiving holiday in Canada, so I doubt that there will be much piecing occuring at my house, but there will be lots of time for family and friends -- turkey and all the trimings.

    Amh I kinda like your idea of a somewhat controlled scrappy. I am throwing that idea around in my mind. I am still not 100% sure if I can do this. I am on the 50 paper pieced stars group. We still have 10 more to go. Plus I have several other projects going. I will decide over the weekend. This is one of the quilts on my bucket list.

    Gosh, I haven't touched fabric in two weeks. I have been back on a counted cross stitch kick. When the sewing mood hits me again I will work on my NY beauty.

    Quilters aren't greedy, they're just materialistic.

    I was hoping to see some more pictures
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    I seem to do crafts in spurts. I bought lots of new Batiks too for the sew along and am in the middle of a batik sampler that has four NYB blocks in it and am half way done but stopped and then picked up counted cross stitch and am on a roll with that now. So when the mood hits me again to sew I will.
