More than most patterns, New York Beauty has been made in the full range of detail from the very finest to the most crude. This falls somewhere in the middle. The overall effect of this is extremely dramatic, largely because of the unusual color combination. In addition, the sunbursts in the centers and placement of the pattern on a diagonal add to the strong effect.
The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There are several inconsequential scuff marks that some might want removed but I do not believe it is essential. Quilting patterns in the off blocks follow the outlines of the circles surrounding them. The edges are finished by turning front and back together. Measurements are 73" x 86". Elements of the quilting and construction lead me to believe the quilt was made in the South but I cannot say for certain.
