    You know Leslee, Iíve never ceased to be amazed by your work (stands up to applaud), and truly you are the inspiration to my own rough attempts in the craft; but truly you advance quilting into art, and one which I can only gaze from afar at.

    When I saw you working on the beauties at work and my heart stopped. Looking through the net, I think Iíve spotted the two sights you mentioned:

    http://www.lenzula.com/pattern/free/nyb.php

    http://quilterscornerclub.tripod.com/free_ny_new_york_beauty_quilt_block_patterns.html

    Of course, in the end, Iíll surely dabble in this only because I admire the work youíve done so much. I went ahead and read the basic directions on both sites, but donít really understand the inner workings and machining. Heck, Iíve barely scratched the surface of the Hawaiian quilting you introduced me to; once again, due to your beautiful work I canít wait to get to New York Beauties.

    Could you please do me a favor and post the really colorful piece youíve been working on at work so these folks can see it? Also, make the picture larger so they can really come to appreciate what you are doing; the points are amazing.

    Chele--your use of color has always amazed me. Coming from you, this is high praise. I've loved every block you've posted!

    The block is called New York Beauty, and the sites Steve quoted are good sources. There's a step-by-step picture tutorial at the quilterscornerclub site that's very helpful. I'm sure it could be template-pieced, but paper piecing is the fastest method and maybe the most accurate. There are also pieced curves in both arcs for an additional challenge!

    Thanks to everybody for your kind comments! I gave the quilt to the Parents-to-be yesterday and they liked it a lot.

    Oh, what a great gift for that baby!! You do beautiful work. I wish I liked to paper piece to do quilts like this, but I just can't force myself to do them. So I will admire yours!!

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
