I would like to try my hand at making a New York Beauty quilt and if you look on my side bar there is a group that is starting one on the 3rd. I have picked out these fabrics having the black as my background but I think I might want all my points to be one color too. I have not decided that yet but I guess I will decide shortly, I was thinking of a gold or red. I will let you know what I decide...thanks for looking. There is also 2 blacks; one has a little swirl in it almost like a grayish and the other is Kona but I will more than likely go with the Kona.
