Well I've certainly started off my Sunday morning with a ZING! New York Beauty block number 5 has been added to my collection - still not sure how many of these I'm going to make, but I'm certainly having great fun playing around with these patterns! I found the designs as free downloads from this website - they were then printed onto bank paper (it's very thin, and perfect for foundation piecing). Once the blocks have been completed, the bank paper can easily be torn away. I've used a Titanium Microtex size 60 needle for this, and Aurifil 50wt thread - and the stitch length reduced down to 1.5 on my Bernina.
