referencing a groundbreaking design

Here's a new one. It came from an Etsy seller in Arizona, and was made following a familiar Karen Stone New York Beauty pattern. I'm still trying to gather information about the maker, and will share more details as I receive them.

The design source of the new quilt is on the cover of Karen Stone's 1995 book "New York Beauty: Traditional Blocks with Contemporary Variations" - and it should be noted that Karen's design included elaborately pieced borders. Even though my quilt doesn't have the pieced borders, it's a clear reference to a groundbreaking design- one that hadn't yet been represented in my collection.
