Happy 4TH of July !!!!
Since it will be the 4th of July soon I thought I would show off a "New York Beauty" quilt .
I made this one for my niece when she got married about 2 years ago .
I really enjoyed making it. Its my first New York Beauty and do plan to try some day to make another one .
This quilt is a "Quilt As You Go " type quilt. Its made in 4 sections then I quilted each sections . I joined them by adding a strip of fabric on the back. The backing is black so none of the strips shows at all. Each border was joined with the QAYG method. This took a while...............:)This was my first BLACK quilt . Keeping the fuzz and thread off was a major undertaking !!
I did an all over meandering stitch. I have a BSR on my Bernina 440 and that helps a lot.
By the time I finished quilting on this one my stitches were pretty nice . It was alot of quilting so Practice = perfect :0)
