Library Journal
With their elegant rounded lines and radiating triangle points, New York Beauty blocks combine technical elements challenging for even the most accomplished quilter, including piecing the arcs with points and working the curved seams. The resulting quilts can be startlingly beautiful and well worth the effort, as evident in this teaching collection of 14 New York Beauty quilt projects. A trained artist and photographer, Wells sprinkles the book with color photographs that have inspired many of her designs, as well as minilessons on such topics as paper-piecing an arc, free-motion quilting, and joining curved sections of a block. A quilting tour de force, this is recommended for serious collections in large public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

This is a beautiful book, another of my favorites.
