New York Beauty Quilt: Circa 1920; Kentucky
  New York Beauty Quilt: Circa 1920; Kentucky   $825

New York Beauty is always a dynamic quilt pattern and this is no exception. The bold red dominates while the soft green and orange are good back ups. The green has faded from a darker version but still holds its own. This is a difficult pattern to execute and the maker did a fine job creating needlelike points on the numerous triangles. The quilt is from Kentucky where for some unknown reason, many New York Beauties originated. Measurements are 65" x 84"; made circa 1920; excellent condition.
