New York Beauty Quilt
The name "New York Beauty" belies the actual
mood of this visually engaging quilt. More rural southwestern
than urban northeastern it evokes the look and feel of the desert.
Bright red pieces with blue accents rest on a pale red sandstone
background. The back is also the red sandstone color. We know
that it was pieced and quilted by hand sometime during the 1920s.
There are 7 stitches per inch. It measures 62" x 70".
