New York Beauty Quilt

One of the projects I was working on in September was my New York Beauty Quilt.  It has been pieced for quite some time and was just waiting to be quilted.  I was inspired one weekend and went to town.  My friend thinks I should call my quilt "Not Me!"  This came about because as I was describing my weekend to her; Housework - Not Me!; cooking - Not Me!; laundry - Not Me!;  I just quilted and quilted.  It was a lot of fun trying new techniques and glitter thread!!

I will be teaching this piecing technique at The Ottawa Valley Quilters Guild in November.

Here are the steps taken to make this quilt beautiful.
