New York anyone?

Running now through Wednesday the American Folk Art Museum is having a special exhibit of 650 red and white quilts!

Look at this show!  I guess we are not in ‘Kansas’ anymore…

The exhibit is being held at the historic Park Avenue Armory, displaying quilts on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose.  This is the largest quilt exhibit in the city ever, and it is a free event.

For more details, in case you actually can make a trip to New York in the next few days, visit their website at http://folkartmuseum.org/infinitevariety   Their site also has links to many more photos of the event.

In case you can not make a trip to ‘the city’ here are a few photos of quilts at the show.

 

It is only about an eight hour drive from my house to NYC….

Later, Sandra

  3. Did you know that all 700 red and white quilts belong to one woman? She has been collecting for years. Where does she store them all?
    It is cold and windy out at our weeklong quilting retreat at Sandbridge! We just keep the sewing machines humming – 12 of us.
