How many ways...


...can you rearrange New York Beauty blocks? A zillion, apparently. I did decide to add another row so pieced 4 more arcs on Saturday, then cut the rest of the frames and centers and got all the blocks sewn together by the end of yesterday. I really thought I'd get this sewn together today, but I couldn't settle on an arrangement. I started moving blocks around before getting dressed this morning, continued rearranging while chatting on the phone with a friend, picked it up again for about an hour between the vet appointment and lunch, then went back to it after lunch. I'm embarrassed to tell you how much time I spent doing that today and I'm still not sure this is my final arrangement. But it definitely is the best distribution in terms of spreading the different fabrics across the top and making sure I didn't end up with two blocks next to each other with the same fabric in them. These things are important to me, although maybe it's not as big a deal as I think right now.

I like what you're doing here. The colors…the precision…the unexpected arrangement. My eyes keep dancing.
Congrats!

It looks good to me. I went through the same thing with the Strips and Curves quilts. You finally just have to say "enough" and sew them together.
