First let me apologize for the photo as I should have checked the phone to make sure the lens was clean or asked the lady to take a second one. That being said, this quilt is called New York Beauty Simplified. Linda O’Riley Hahn taught at the recent Road to California Quilt Conference. Paper piecing made so easy.
Now I have taken numerous paper piecing classes where you would have to rip out the paper or I would use freezer paper. Linda has a method where you leave the paper in. No, it doesn’t make the quilt stiff or hard to use. When you wash your finished quilt, the paper ends up being more like a stabilizer.
Linda is from New Jersey and has an engaging way of teaching. Plus her books are easy to follow and they have some great color combinations.
I am currently finishing up the class I had at Road which was titled “New York Beauty Diversified”. All I can say is if you want to try her method, you won’t be sorry.
I’ll try to post another picture when I can find my camera. Every year I vow not to buy a lot of items from Road but end up with a basket full. Then I need to find time to put items away, reduce my stash along with old magazines. Now where does that stuff go? To a local senior living facility where they have a small contingency of quilters.
Thanks for reading – now go get creative.
Daraci: As usual your quilt is just beautiful. I can’t believe how you manage all of this. Love, Mom
Thanks Mom – I learned how to budget my time from you – you worked outside the home, raised us kids, kept the house clean and gave us a great upbringing. I could not do the things I do without your guidance. Love you.
