New York Beauty is a difficult pattern to execute which may be why I have never before seen them done as a pair. This pair is especially well pieced and quilted. The off blocks are quilted with finely stitched bouquets of flowers. At the intersections, the maker made the unusual choice of miniature Dresden Plates. The colors are very soft and pleasing. Included with the quilts is a matching pair of square throw pillows. One quilt measures 63" x 96" and the other is 63" x 100". They are from Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania; circa 1920. Condition is excellent.
