Three centuries of Red and White Quilts
Aren' t these absolutely stunning?
If you are lucky enough to live in New York, then you should try and get to the Park Avenue Armory at the American Folk Art Museum and see the "Infinite Variety:Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts" exhibition.
It opens today and goes until March 30...and the best bit...as a gift to the public, it's free!!!
With an awe-inspiring array of 650 one-of-a-kind red and white American quilts on exhibition, it's an absolute must. The quilts are on loan and belong to the private collection of Joanna Rose. It is the largest quilt exhibition to be held in New York.
I would just love to wander through the exhibiton and view 300 years of sewing history.
The quilt designs, which show beautiful examples of hand-piecing or applique, will hang in spirals from the ceiling so that fronts and backs of the quilts can be viewed. The designs range from geometric to fanciful florals, and span 3 centuries of quilt craftmanship and artistry!!
Just amazing what these, predominantly women, created by hand.
For the rest of us we'll just have to make do with the photos...fingers crossed they'll do a book!
