Polka Dot Guild Challenge

Our Guild, the Santiam Scrappers, is having a quilt challenge. The theme, or challenge begins with the polka dot fabric. Each month we will pick out of the bag, two techniques. You can one or both. The first two were fussy cut applique and put words in. So I chose the words with the black fabric and decided to do New York Beauty blocks because I have never done one and have always wanted to. Good enough for me!!!

They actually went together quite easily!! YAY!!

I have two more to make and will not put them together until I get more "surprise" directions. This is going to be a very bright quilt. I am looking forward to the fun!!! The challenge will go on for 6 months, so who knows what the end result will be!!

Stay tuned!! Happy Quilting!! Martha


  1. I love your NY Beauty! I have the fabric to make one and a friend to make one with. I just need to finish some projects so I can start it.

  2. Great job on it. I've always thought that was a pretty block, but yours is outstanding. You make the curves look so easy too.

  3. What a spectacular quilt this will be. You say it went together easily wow it looks so complicated to me and curves no cannot do them
