    I designed my own type of New York Beauty quilt. I have only done one paperpiece project and I just need a point in the right direction with this one.

    Do you paperpiece each arch individually and then assemble the archs with curve piecing?

    Or do you have one complete pattern?

    I am know I will have to play around with it before I start with my good fabric but I was wondering from all you wise people here how you have done it?

    'Not sure if I correctly understand the question, but I begin with the "arch" and PP the whole thing. Next, I sew it to the right angled base. The final step is to attach the top.

    I just finished a small "Beauty". You would do the PP first then piece to the matching arched inner circle. Then sew them together. Or at least that's what I did. Have a look here at the one I finished earlier this week.

    Thank you so much - that is what I thought but wasn't quite certain.

    But I don't speak German :D
    I can figure it out - I actually like these templetes better than the ones I did.
