Artist’s Statement:
New Beauty is a wholecloth quilt, based on the traditional New York Beauty block. Karen K. Stone’s Cinco de Mayo quilt patterns and Emma of Sampaguita Quilts provided inspiration and permission. The designs were done on my shortarm machine, entirely hand guided while on the frame. This was intended to be a portfolio of stitches but suddenly a work of art emerged and I fell in love with the simplicity of the thread.
