Mod Squad 2024 Challenge - "Traditional made Modern" - Part One

This is a follow up to the post about the Mod Squad 2024 Challenge.  I posted 15 pictures of quilts that were in this category at QuiltCon in Raleigh in 2024.

I decided to work with  a large improv curved pieced New York Beauty.  I've made the pattern many times before and thought that I would make this as one as a huge block.  Here is a sketch of my idea:


I pulled out some fabrics in the hot pink to maroon to purple colorway, along with some black, gray and white, and a couple of shades of turquoise.  I don't know if this is what I'll end up with, though.    I printed the sketch a few times and colored them in.  Here are the colors that I decided to use.


I will probably start on making the foundation pieced arcs first.  I've drawn them on the paper pattern and I'm pretty sure I'll use the colors from the sketch.

So, stay tuned for how that section turns out.
