“New York Beauty quilts are rare – hard to find and harder to make,” says collector Bill Volckening. “They are highly prized and representative of America’s finest patchwork. Over the years, the pattern has been known by a number of names, including Rocky Mountain Road and Rail Through the Rockies. For this exhibit, Volckening selected an array of quilts which spans a century and a half and demonstrates the enduring popularity of this historic pattern. New York Beauty quilts are very rare and RMQM is excited to host this beautiful collection.
New York Beauty: Quilts from the Volckening Collection, a book by Volckening is available at the RMQM Gift Shop and provides more insight into this collection.
Rocky Mountain Road is sponsored in part by QUILTmania.
