New York Beauty Blocks

I am having so much fun making these blocks from a collection of “my precious” silk – Some which I’ve held onto since almost forever.

Over 30 years ago I bought several yards of teal silk while in Thailand on a round-the-world ticket following my time in Peace Corps Kenya. I always thought I’d make it into something to wear. The yellow, red and orange silk were recently gifted from a Bee Modern SF buddy – a neighbor clearing out his mom’s house had yards and yards of silk to give away and it was shared with our group. And the pink was just given to me in a large box of fabric from a friend this fall. I’d bought a few fat quarters over the years waiting for inspiration. Well I FOUND IT and have had so much fun creating these blocks! I have about five more to make to finish what will be a wall hanging to go over our fireplace (28”x28”).
