New York Beauty Quilt Top

Amy Friendnew york beauty, paper piecing25 Comments

I finished the borders on my New York Beauty quilt top!  This quilt top has a lot of paper in it still which is why it isn’t hanging nicely. I have a couple of hours of paper picking ahead of me before I can baste.

The first border is BasicGrey Grunge in Oynx with Lakehouse Seed Packet print in black for the cornerblocks. The outer border is paper pieced triangles/points of various heights (just like the arcs of the New York Beauty). Each border was pieced as one long section so that there are no breaks or seams.  I drew them by hand, using a straight edge, so border is different.  The cornerblocks are Drunkard’s Path blocks. The binding will be black Heath. 

I have no quilting ideas yet. Suggestions?
