Worked today on the July block for the new round of the birthday block swap - twice. I started with the block on the left - now, the colour there is not totally true - the fabrics used are the same in both versions of the block - but still, you can see why I decided to do a second one. The central arc was a little short on the left one as well, but that could have fairly easily been fixed with a little picking and unpicking - but when I finished it I decided there was too little contrast in the central arc and that using the sand coloured batik on the little strip was too pushy. The right-hand one is better. Not bad for my first (well, second!) New York Beauty block, ever.
This one will be on the way to Joy before too long...
