This is a continuation of many previous posts about the making of the New York Beauty improv quilt.
I tried out several different designs for the setting strips. Here is what I decided. This layout will end up with a quilt that will be 70" x 70". Just the right size for me to be able to quilt on my sit-down longarm.
I pieced a few of the setting strips with alternating black and dark blue fabrics. It seemed a little too dark, so I sewed the rest with some light blue pieces. I brought in some more medium blue and red with circles set into the "center" of the New York Beauty blocks. Here's the finished top.
I hope you like it!
