New York Beauty Quilts Electrified: 12 Fun, Skill-Building Projects Using Easy Foundation Paper-Piecing Techniques to Electrify New York Beauty Blocks by Linda J. Hahn, Deborah G. Stanley
New York Beauty Quilts
New York Beauty quilts were introduced in the mid-1800s. At that time the textile industry had boomed with new fabrics, giving quilters the freedom to explore complex patchwork designs. Since then, the energetic-looking design—named after the Statue of Liberty’s crown—has evolved but the motif’s sharp points and technically challenging curved seams have remained steadfast through the years. To this day, it remains a beloved block and a topic of interesting quilt history.
Award-winning quilting teacher Linda Hahn introduced her simple paper-piecing technique for clean, precise blocks in New York Beauty Simplified and New York Beauty Diversified. Now Linda is back with more fabulous things to do with this grand old patchwork design!
New York Beauty Electrified offers 12 sparkling new skill-building projects that will kick up your quilting with fun embellishments and updated piecing instructions to make construction even easier. Linda’s amazing one pin technique lets you create NYB blocks that have clean sharp points and nice easy curves, practically guaranteeing the perfect block the first time you try it.
Hahn has teamed up with quilter Deborah G. Stanley on this book. Her specialty is simple, easy-to-complete sewing and quilting projects. The pair are proud to share their time-tested technique and patterns with quilters everywhere!
