Here's my finished paper-pieced New York Beauty sections.
Aren't they pretty?
Ok, so I'm a history buff as far as quilt blocks are concerned.
Why is it called New York Beauty?
What year did it first appear?
I kind of had an epiphany while working on these the other night....I think this part looks like Lady Liberty's crown (Statue of Liberty). That would explain the New York part, and beautiful part.
What do you think?
Any other insights to other block names?
(Who is Aunt Sukie and why did she "choose" that block?)
