New York Beauty Simplified


If this cover isn’t eye candy, I don’t know what is!!!  This is my friend, Linda’s, new book out from AQS.  You can order your very own autographed copy (with free shipping!) from Linda’s website  or pick one up from your local quilt shop. 

Linda has developed a technique to make those New York Beauty blocks nearly fool proof!   She shows you exactly how to do it with step by step directions and photographs.   

21 stunning quilts, all made with the same technique, yet all completely different looking.  Then she even gives you directions on how to use up the leftover scraps to make mini quilts.  You know how much “The Fabric Minimalist” (me) loves that idea!!!   And if that weren’t enough, there’s a gallery of another 18 quilts from which to draw inspiration! 

All of the quilts were quilted by either Linda or her talented daughter, Sarah.  They have compiled all of the quilting designs into a companion book, Dynamic Designs, also available from Linda’s website or


Linda will be demonstrating her technique at the upcoming AQS Lancaster, PA show and teaching classes at the AQS Paducah, KY show, as well as Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA.  Check out her full schedule at

Just be forewarned…these quilts are addictive!

  1. Oh they look just yummy–I love those blocks but have not had the fortitude (or time) to tackle learning them. This might be the time!

  2. OK! I just ordered the book! Her technique just sounds too good to not try. Too bad I didn’t get in on the pre-order! She could have signed it for me which would have been cool since I’ve actually met her! Can’t wait for it to arrive!
