I designed this New York Beauty in EQ 6 & 7 for my Grand Daughter's birthday. My grand daughter lives and attends college in Ohio.  I sent photos of quilts to her by email hoping she might choose a nice style. The last photo I sent to her was of a NY Beauty. She loved it and wanted a NY Beauty in teal her favorite color. She took a class trip to New York City so this quilt will reminder of a great adventure. I decided to make it in teal Batiks, the darkest teal was used as a sashing for the beauties. I chose 6 different teal batiks in all.  I wanted a nice contrast so I chose gold, tan and  red/coper gold.

I drew all of my blocks in EQ 6 and then upgraded to EQ 7 when it became availble. The blocks in the center sections are the same size at 12 inches. The border blocks where more complicated. I elongated the center, side and corner sections. The border blocks are 9 inches square with different lengths for completed border. There are 282 spikes which were foundation pieced into into arcs.  I quilted this quilt myself. It measures 95" X 95", thank heaven for Bernina's BSR. I began the quilt in January 2010, completed and shipped it to my grand daughter in September in time for her birthday. She loves it.

A true beauty of a quilt! I admire anyone who tackles this as points are not my strong suit.  I bet Sydney treasures this for a long time :-)

LOVE IT! LOVE quilts with points and this certainly does it for me! I would think this would do well entered in a show.
