Q8143 New York Beauty
66 x 80 (167.7 x 203.2 cm)
This beautiful pre Civil War quilt is comprised of fabrics in solid Turkey red, chrome yellow, white and tan (which has oxidized down from green). The wonderful color palette has softened over time to a muted elegance. Entirely hand pieced and hand quilted with incredible skill. Quilting patterns include outline, echo outline, clamshell and floral swags.
The New York Beauty pattern showcases the expertise of this quilt’s creator—great precision is required in the circular piecing. The quilting further emphasizes her skill with the needle making this entire artistic presentation softly sophisticated while still being quite graphic.
This amazing piece of art has been used but lovingly cared for and would be spectacular art for the bed or wall. In very good condition and professionally hand washed by Betsey. Remember, you can view this quilt in your home on approval.
