Coming soon: two quilts for the "New York Beauty" collection. I will be exhibiting quilts later this year, and thought it would be good to add a couple quilts to the collection. The first was made by Jim Brown of Bennington, Vermont. It is a dynamic, new New York Beauty in red, white, black and gray.
The second quilt is late 19th century, 1870s or 1880s, and includes a couple unusual elements. The appliqué buds between arcs are unusual, as are the sunflower cornerstones. Handsome colors, too. The gold color was probably another color originally, perhaps red or green. Here are a few more photos of both quilts.
