Full Size New York Beauty

Hoop-N-Quilt

Shown here on a King Size bed with my Lone Star, this New York Beauty Block is made using my Hoop ‘N’ Quilt method.  This quilt is not yet completed as there are more elements I want to add to it. I’ll post them as they are completed.

This full size - 26 inch - New York Beauty block allows you to make New York Beauty Quilts or combination Lone Star/New York Beauty quilts for Full/Queen/King size beds.

If you are not a quilter or simply don’t want to tackle a full size bed quilt this technique can also be used to embellish a purchased bedspread or tablecloth for a quick finished project.

NOTE: This design fits my Lone Star layout made with 11 rounds of diamonds. 11 Rounds of diamonds creates a 13 inch block area between the star points.

These New York Beauty projects go together quickly and are not stiff or bulky in any way. Rather, they lay flat, feel soft, draping like a quilt made with more traditional techniques. They are wonderful to use as bed covers, lap covers, or sofa comforter as they drape about you like any quilt in which you would bundle up for warmth.

Of course, a sleeve can be added to the backside should you wish to hang your quilt on the wall for viewing.

Full-Size New York Beauty Designs Details
for the 5x7 Hoop

The only difference between the 5x7 and the 6x10 designs is that the 6x10 designs have more repeats per hoop and LSSBGL is one file in the 6x10 and two parts in the 5x7.

You’ll want a size-12 topstitch needle for stitching your individual designs, a size-9 universal needle for stitching them together and, finally, a size-11 quilting needle for quilting your quilt layers together.

Modified New York Beauty with Lone Star

I’m still playing with borders & other elements for my quilt.

These are some preliminary layouts made with the modified version.

88x88 inches

(Border not included)

115 x 115 inches

(Border not included)

115 x 115 inches

(Borders not included)

115 x 115 inches

(Borders not included)

I recommend using water-soluble stabilizer to stitch out the diamonds, as it washes out the first time the project's laundered leaving only the soft, supple fabric and batting.

My personal favorite.
