    Wow! How intriguing. I've been intimidated by this beautiful quilt pattern for years. I have also been looking for just the right opportunity to really work on my paper piecing. Two birds - one stone! Thanks for getting this started.

    Will keep you posted.
    June - Chocolate Covered Cherries D4P swap!!
    July - Batiks Revisited D4P swap
    August - Scrappy Block swap - Bonnie Hunters' Scrappy Trips!

    Ohhhh noooooo. Doing a NYB has been on my bucket list. I have been collecting fabrics for a few years.
    I am also collecting reds to do a Double wedding ring.
    So there is only one thing to do, which is get started on that bucket list.
    Renea, so glad you're joining us! To fun that your next thing on your bucket list is DWR because I am working on correcting a pattern for a variation of DWR call Flower ring and when this quilt along is finished was thinking about hosting that as a quilt along! I tried making it from an old book but it wasn't test before publication so the block came out wonky.

    Welcome Jclinganrey and Knlsmith - this is going to be a great learning experience for paper piecing and it's such a pretty block!

    Anael.........I think you have made the right choice, as your Sylvia blocks need to be completed before starting this project. Do keep us posted on how your blocks are coming along. I would love to see picture's when they are posted. You can always do the NYC blocks whenever you are ready too.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    It's hard not to start another project especially when you have new fabric...its like an itch that needs to be scratched!

    SulaBug, there's no Sylvia thread here on the board. I posted my blocks on the HGTV board but I can post some in the picture thread if you like.

    Kristen, please I ordered some more fabric today and I had to go to the LQS and found some nice but very expensive fabrics there too. They're for another project though, started last Saturday and of course I had to join! But my batiks should arrive this week so I know I will be tempted to make at least one block.
    I counted my Sylvia blocks and did it right this time, I'm down to 20 to go so when I don't spend my time here on the board ............

    Oh I am so in for making a New York Beauty. In I am currently making the paper pieced sampler that is on the back cover of Alex Anderson's new updated paper piecing book! My whole reason for making it is so I can get experience before making a NYB. I am so excited!
