Here's a sneak peak at my Modernista swap fabrics and the start of my large item. I've been wanting to make New York Beauty blocks for a while now and I think that my partner would really like them. I really want to do some hand quilting on this so that's why I am sticking to mostly solids. I think it might make the quilt stitches pop more than they would with patterns.
But if I plan on hand stitching, I better get a move on these blocks! Hopefully they come together quickly. Really excited to make my small item as well, but want to at least get this ready for quilting before I get too far behind on projects.
