    Wow! New York Beauty is a really difficult pattern to tackle for your first piecing project! The fabrics you have chosen are beautiful.

    Where did you get the pattern? I doubt that you are going to find a video tutorial for this particular pattern because it's fairly unusual. Usually this pattern would be tackled by an experienced quilter using a book that explains in detail how to piece the parts together.

    My suggestion is to go to Amazon and search for New York Beauty Quilts. One of the books on this topic might have a DVD packaged with it; not sure. A highly rated book, such as Valorie Wells', probably has detailed instructions and pictures to explain the piecing process. I've never done one myself, so I can't provide more advice than that!

    I took a class on NYB and still haven't finished it. It's very time consuming but so beautiful. I love your colors!

    thank you for the compliment bella! thank goodness i'm just doing 1 block and not an entire quilt of them!! I can see why you haven't finished!! Paper piecing is kinda fun but it is very time consuming and a real pain when you screw up!! I wish that i would have been able to take a class on it-would have been a little easier to put together. but i am thankful to my LQS and the internet for helping me get this together-need to have this block done by tomorrow night for guild-i'll be getting it done now with the tutorial

    Hey, Montanaquilter. By the time you finish this block you will be an expert and will be able to teach us a thing or two about it. Share what you have learned. I just love the colors you have chosen. When I was a child those were the colors I pulled out of a new box of crayons. They were the first ones to wear out too. Welcome to the board from South Louisiana.
