I even bought Karen Stone's book, which includes patterns for similar quilts.
But I put off starting a new major undertaking, knowing how much I hate unfinished projects hanging around. I already have some paper piecing stars that I need to make something of....
But when my LQS announced a BOM that is a version of a New York Beauty called Almond County Beauty my resistance crumbled.
The BOM is from Sewn Into the Fabric. I like the area of open space (negative space as the modern quilters call it. As an aside, I think that term was stolen from architecture... but that's ok, all those elitist pompous asses need to get over themselves). Ahem.
The BOM even provides the fabric, which at first I didn't love. But again, it's all ready to go, no design and color decisions to make..... And if I get ambitious I can make two sets each month, one of my own choosing .... yeah.... right.
Anyway.... I have found that some nice left brain precision paper piecing can be a respite when my artist's right brain gets tired. I'll try to remember to share.
