Hollyhocks in bloom - what a lovely shade of pink.

Country style New York Beauty

Hello Everyone!  I took some time out yesterday to begin a new project.  I recently purchased some lovely fabric from Brannock and Patek called Farmer's Market and thought I'd make a country version of New York Beauty blocks...which I absolutely love!

Here are the three sections of my first block.  I've yet to put them together...not sure if I'm up to trying to sew the curves right now...I'm supposed to be packing after all! :-)
