Tiny New York Beauties!

This is the project I worked on for a bit yesterday. In my little friendship group, we are each making our own little shnibbles quilt. It starts with the 4- 8.5" Churndash blocks you see here and then that's where the creativity begins! Since I chose a red, white and blue theme, I wasn't sure where to go with my setting blocks. Some options were embroidery or applique, but nothing came to mind for me. NYB blocks have been a real attraction for me lately, so I'm trying my hand at them. This was a free pattern I found online that was about 3 times the size, so I just shrunk it down and this is where it's going. I'm not at all sure at this point that it's going to work, but I sure hope it does since it has involved at least a couple of hours of work play.

Lot's to do in the sewing room today....!
