New York Beauty Fix

I’ve been working on a New York Beauty quilt for awhile. I finally got the front together, minus the border and realized that the balance of the quilt was a bit off. This is when I start to debate with myself: Is it really worth seam ripping or will it be okay. Normally I opt for the second option. But I’ve been trying to challenge myself lately.

I wanted to switch the two blocks that were highlighted.

A pile of thread later….

And the finished front with borders.

I’m actually not sure if the change helped balance the quilt, maybe not worth it. But definitely a lesson on my part. And this picture reinforces that I need to find a better way to photograph my quilts.
