Sewvivor -- CityHouseStudio

Here is my entry into Sewvivor 3: Quilters Edition -- a New York Beauty Mini quilt.
Here you can see the small scale of this quilt -- it finishes at just under 20 inches square.

This mini quilt uses the NYB block 4 template, and some of my favorite Katie Jump Rope fabrics.  I absolutely love the KJR yellows!  This quilt was definitely a challenge to piece, but fun, too.  I loved seeing the tiny paper pieced sun's rays come together!  And I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I had to make sure that all of those curves matched up really well before I was satisfied.  I've seen NY Beauty blocks quilted in a variety of ways, but I'm really happy with how I chose to quilt it -- straight line rays in the middle, and circles that gradually widen around the edges.
