How to Make a New York Beauty Quilt with Pattern



Marianne Fons
Mary Fons

Quilters don’t always sit at home piecing patchwork; a lot of us, including Marianne Fons and Mary Fons, love to get out and see the world. This quilt was inspired by a fabulous trip to New York City.

On this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Paper piece sections for a New York beauty quilt
  • Join curved piece sections
  • Piece a double square in a square block

Let Marianne and Mary ignite your imagination as you visit the world through quilting!


Materials: A link to download the pattern “Times Square” ($6.99 value) will be available for free after your class purchase.
