    It is gorgeous and your time will speed up as you learn. The precision is worth the time. Your colors sing together.

    ​Pretty! Have you seen Tula Pink sea serpent made from NYB blocks? Angela Walters quilted it on her blog.

    I can believe it! This week I’ve started my first NYB quilt. It’s a Judy Niemeyer pattern. It took me an entire day just to prepare the paper templates and the paper foundations!

    I just made a NYB block using the ruler set. The first one took me two hours! The fourth one took me 15 minutes. There is a learning curve, but it does get better quickly.

    Very nicely done. Looks like you fussy cutted the striped fabric so it looks like one continuous piece with the solid fabric between it.

    Was the one hour of work worth it to you? For me, as a bystander, it's gorgeous and I look forward to seeing more. Brava!

    Barb, you are doing a fabulous job and it is going to be gorgeous. I hope the process gets quicker as you become more comfortable with it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    That is going to be beautiful and 1 hour working on it is worth every minute. Great workmanship

    That turned out so nice! I love the Tula fabric. Everything seems to take longer than you think it should.

    It took me a minute to figure out that this section is sideways from the normal NYB spire layout. Have not seen that before. Thanks for posting the rest of your work! Beautiful fabric! beautiful work! Well done.

    Nice block, but please check the point at the 1" mark. It looks like it will be cut off once sewn with a 1/4" seam.
