Ok Ladies,

I finally, did I say finally got the nack of the new york beauty blocks. I've always admired these blocks but I was having a hard time getting the curves ,and it was a challenge for me to get them to look right, been working on this from time to time.  I tried the applicurve technique, because deep down I really wanted to make a real artsy type wall hanging, and just wasn't satisfied with that either. So, here I am making blocks after blocks, and has anyone quilted one of these quilts.  Because now my thought is how am I ever gonna quilt this when I get to that step.  I know the ones I have seen are really eye catching, but never really paid to much attention to the quilting details.  Any suggestions?

I would love to see a photo of your blocks.  It's on my very long to-do list.
