The Benton County Historical Society & Museum in Philomath, Oregon, is showing “Beauty Secrets: 150 Years of History in One Quilt Pattern” through October 1, 2011. The Smilebox presentation from The Quilt Show below is of some of those quilts of the New York Beauty design, a very graphic and loved pattern. The quilts are highly graphic and are beautifully quilted. The quilts are from Bill Volkening’s Collection.
