My friend Bill Volckening (see his blog here ) has a terrific collection of New York Beauty quilts that spans over 150 years. He has written a book, due in April, about these great quilts. The coffee table book will have over 300 pages with 70 quilts made between 1850 and present day; all examples and variants of the complicated patchwork design best known as New York Beauty.
I was lucky to have a part in a few of the quilts. I hand quilted a few of the vintage quilt tops that he collected. remember this quilt?
here is a preview of the contents
I am really looking forward to reading it! Advanced copies can be ordered here
Happy quilting and reading
