New York Beauty Quilt for a Long Island Friend

New York Beauty Quilt Top

Elaine is an internet quilty friend who I see each year at the Lancaster show where a group of us gather for show and tell each year. Last year she brought me this beautiful New York Beauty top to quilt for her. I love how it turned out! You may remember this quilt from the design phase. 

She used a foundation for the paper piecing and it gives it a nice stability. Don’t you love all the batiks? She must have a nice stash leftover, eh?

I used a curl in each of the spikes and straight lines in the background. New York Beauty corner

The cornerstones got concentric circles and I feathered the backgrounds of the blocks.

I also did a curl design in the brown border. I’m happy with it and I know she will be too!
