Description

The New York Beauty block is believed to have been created to represent the crown of spikes on the head of the Statue of Liberty that stands at the entrance to New York Harbour.

Sue was shown how to make a series of New York Beauty foundation pieced blocks quickly on the sewing machine in a form of continuous foundation piecing and now shares this with us.

She also takes us through how to attach the two arcs of fabric, which are rather like Drunkards Path, to create the rest of the block.

Sue suggests that, if you like, you could add some embellishment. She suggests embroidery stitches along the edge of the smaller arc, particularly if you wanted to applique this onto the crown of spikes, rather than piece it on. (and if you are going with the ironing method you might like to consider the thermal thimbles to protect your fingers!)

This traditional block has also been given a modern twist by Sue by adding a rectangle. She then works with a partial seam technique to create the twisted New York Beauty pattern.  The pattern is available to purchase through the shop by clicking here.
