Serengeti beauty blocks

I saw sense with my previous over optimistic designs when I tried to print out foundation patterns - anything you can piece does not fit on an A4 piece of paper! Besides, these African fabrics don't need overcomplicating ( so I tell myself.) So I dropped down to simpler New York Beauty Blocks. These are a few of the 6 inch blocks so far.

I intend to vary the colour placements and add some new colour 'families' including greens - these are just the start!

your fabrics are terrific! I'm going to be tempted to make more NYBs after looking at yours...

I've LWya liked those new york beauties -- they're interesting when combined with such striking prints.
