    Hi,
    I just saw your site too! I love the NYB but haven't ever tried it. Where do you go to get the patterns? How many blocks have your done so far. Seeing if I'm too far behind. Thanks!

    OMGosh! She re-did the site and got rid of that page! I may have saved them on my Computer. When I get home I will check.

    Cool

    Another quilter and I were discussing PP'ing so I brought out my NYB blocks to show her. Our conversation was basicially, "if I can do it, you can too". This is my first PP'ing project.

    I ended up laying out a few blocks on the breakfast bar to show her the concept. If you notice, I got into the PP'ing and skipped the outer piece to square off the block. Yes, i will finish that part up using all the same plum fabric. My blocks are scrappy, but each one has a fabric in common.
    There are lots of Kansas Troubles fabrics by Moda, some stash too. I am finishing up block 6 hopefully this week. It is hard to stay caught up. Life happens.

    Here is the photo.

    Please email me your address if you did not print out all the blocks and need the remaining ones. In the past I saved them to my computer as PDF's. Because they were free patterns on the web I don't believe there is an issue with me emailing them to whoever needs them (copy right law, etc).

    I was looking at the flicker site for the NYB & they have listed the Internet Archive of the blocks. Here's the link.
    Scroll down & you should find it under the comments. Hope this works for you.

    Thanks Kristen. I am enjoying this project. I am behind schedule but that is ok with me. This is my first PP'ing project and I am already looking for another one.

    There is a sewing Expo in the area at the end of the month. I am taking another quilter with me so we can hunt for a project together. Our plan is to meet at each others houses and do it together.

    I am looking forward to seeing everyones work. I am way behind. I haven't started yet. I am glad there is a way to get the patterns. I have learned to print a pattern when i see it because a free pattern is sometimes here today and gone tomorrow. Or I can never figure out where I found it in the first place.

    I need some help now. Each NYB has been easy up intil #8. All I am doing is Rip rip rip! Rippit!!!! I had to print another paper because I distroyed it. At least it was only paper.

    My issue is, the short pieces. One long, two short, one long....is the pattern. The short ones are not working for me. How about a clue or tip so I can get one accomplished. How did you do it?

    Did the New York Beauty Blocks go to sleep---did I miss something along the way? I just started up again, and finally got it to where the curves are coming a little easier. Haven't seen any pictures or activities for a long time.

    I agree, it seems some of us did not get the patterns before the links were deactivated. Thank goodness I downloaded all of them in a couple of places.

    I had asked for some help on Block #8 but heard nothing. Not one person responded. this lead to me believe nobody was on task anymore.

    Boy am I ever disappointed.

    I came in to view this thread and to see if anyone really did leave me a note as to what to do with this NYB block. I was so stumped with it, that I had not looked at it for over a month. April 24th to be exact.

    Not even Kristen has responded.

    Never fear though, I had to run to town and get some help with block #8 and they are now completed.

    This is why I normally do not join in groups on the internet, everyone can disappear too easy. At least, this gave me the courage to start a new quilting concept.

    Rainagade, I'm sorry you feel this way. I didn't start this project so I can't help you but I'm glad you did get some help. It's not always this way. At least one group on this board has been together for several years now.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I am so sorry I have been MIA. I have had my life fall apart since December.
    On the 12/10 my husband lost his job,
    on 12/17 he left me,
    on 12/23 I was in a car accident, I have been in physical therapy done with that,
    on 12/31 I came down with shingles on my eyelid imagine that all the stress
    then in May my husband wanted to work on the marriage but lied about the affair, the other woman got pregnant . . . my life has been a soap orera and barely liveable. I live in Salem Oregon if you want together and still need help I would be happy some weekend to meet up with you. I did FINALLY sew some more blocks this weekend!
