New York Beauty pattern
My guild has been doing challenge blocks this year.

My last block was an applique and I survived and learned lots about my sewing machine stitches thanks to you all.
The blocks I am making are 12 inches each. Our last block is working with curves and I chose the New York Beauty.
Where can I buy a pattern that size? Is there a place I can order NY Beauty patterns? Maybe I should just make a 6 inch one and have a larger back ground and call it good. It's been a challenge finding printable patterns.
Thank you again.

I may not have made myself clear. I want the 1/4 block to be 12 inches. I understand that four 6 inch would make one 12 inch square.

If you find a 6" block you like, take it to a copy shop and have them enlarge it to 12". Or just draft your own.

200% enlargement would do it. look on quilterscache site though. they have blocks by name and by size.

This was going to be my suggestion as well. Lots of resources on that site.

You will likely need to have whatever you pick enlarged since it's not a typical size. That being said, check Craftsy, they have 1 free pattern and pages and pages of others, maybe you will find one that size...let us know if you do...that would be a great center piece in a quilt!

Those Tobacco Shed NY Beauty patterns from Craftsy are beautiful.

That is an odd size, but you can use this chart to change any pattern to the size you want.


If that doesn't work, go here and click on the "Stamp out math" button. https://www.generations-quilt-

These are some very pretty NY Beauty blocks. I believe all have a pdf file that you can download and then have enlarged to whatever size you want. http://www.lenzula.de/en/pattern/fre...rk-beauty.html

Does EQ7 or 8 have the block your looking for???

The ones that Barb in Louisiana posted are what I used for my NY beauty. They went together really nicely.
