Start of Scrappy New York Beauty

A little project I started using my scraps.  I purchased the book New York Beauty Simplified by Linda Hahn at my local quilt shop Crafty Threads.  She really does a good job of explaining and lots of pictures for clarity.  My plan is to use pinks for the pie, greens for the background and yellow and oranges for the spires which have a white background.  Instead of paper to make the arch foundation, I used something I found in the interfacing section of Joann's.  I think it is used to make patterns.  I tested it by washing and drying a small sample.  While watching the idiot box, I have been tracing the arch's onto this stuff.  Works well, I love using it and a bigger bonus, no paper to peel away.  Looks like interfacing, but better. 

Once we move across country, we will be staying in a LaQuinta with our two dogs in Eugene, Oregon.  I am packing my small Janome with this project and another one, just incase I get bored.
