Foundation piecing blocks with curves

New York beauty and Pickle dish are two classic blocks.

They’re not the easiest blocks but foundation piecing makes them blocks doable if you don’t have a lot of quilting experience.

In fact the blocks are a mix of foundation and traditional piecing. The curves are pieced traditionally. I use lots of pins but you may get away with using fewer pins, even just one for the centre and one for each corner. You’ll have to adjust what works for you.

I get asked often what type of paper I use and what I do with it at the end.

Mostly I use copy paper but you can buy special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer if that makes it easier.
