New York Beauty is a sought after pattern that is not often seen because it is difficult to execute. It consists entirely of curves and points, two of the most challenging aspects of patchwork. The maker of this example further challenged herself by adding yellow compasses in the center of each block. It is very well quilted with double rows of diamonds in the white areas and concentric arcs in the red. Indiana origin; circa 1880. Measurements are 71" x 86"; excellent condition.
