Made in Vermont

This sensational "New York Beauty" quilt was made in Vermont by a talented gentleman named Jim Brown. I found it on Etsy a few weeks ago, and had to add it to the collection because I will be having two exhibitions this year and wanted to add a couple new quilts to the mix. The quilt is large, 96" square. According to Jim, it is a variation of a pattern seen in American Patchwork and Quilting.

Jim thought this pattern would look stunning in a Red, Black, and White combination. Points are paper pieced. Cotton fabrics, Warm & Natural Cotton Batting. Machine quilted by Tessa Atwood of Hummingbird Hill Quilting. This quilt won a 3rd place People’s Choice Ribbon and a Vendor’s Choice Ribbon at the 2014 Bennington Quiltfest held in Bennington, VT. Jim was very kind to send more information, which I will keep on file, and you can also learn more by visiting his Etsy shop
