    New York Roundabout

    Whew! And here I thought that I would spend this weekend making the New York Roundabout kit that I had ordered. Now it's Sunday evening and I'm only half-way through piecing it together. My back is killing me and I'm totally beat!

    While it isn't as good as I had hoped, at least most of my seams meet like they are supposed to - here is what I've gotten done so far. The wallhanging is from a kit that I purchased, but I don't even remember where I got it because I've waited so long to attempt piecing it together. It's a paper-piece creation done on foundation fabric. Thanks for looking!

    You do beautiful work, I am very impressed.

    I bought the same kit this summer at City Quilter in NY, it is also available online, http://secure.netsolhost.com/191487....gory_Code=K1QK

    My blocks are not matching up near as well as yours.

    WOW! There's a lot of paper piecing and stitching there! You've done a great job of matching seams. I think you've accomplished quite a bit this weekend. Congratulations!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very nice!! A New York Beauty is on my "to make" list.

    It is coming along beautifully!!! Don't stress over getting it done in one weekend. That is a very hard pattern to do, and you are doing great so far. Hope your back feels better.
