Time to Reveal More - NYB


The Double NYB in all it's glory.


Detail of the Double NYB Block




Detail of the Single NYB

As promised here is the more to be revealed. Here are detail shots of the NYBs after they were quilted. The binding is now on and on the double one completely stitched with a sleeve for hanging if I so desire. I plan to make so matching fabric napkins just in case I use it on the table instead.

The single block NYB is light enough in weight that it will just get hook and loop tape to hang it with. This is a great trick I learned from Mistress Quilter, Judy B. Dales aeons ago. She primarily uses it for hanging odd shaped quilts but I find it works just as well for square and rectangular ones. It also makes them quick change artists, when I want to change them out.

This is absolutely beautiful!!!! I love the block and the colors you picked. The quilting always adds the extra texture that makes it pop!
Great work!!!!

well, as this is my favorite quilt pattern - and you've created it in my absolute favorite colours, I can only assume that you made it for me.

I am so grateful.

Thank you.
