Quilts

This weekend I visited "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of American Quilts," an exhibition at the Park Avenue Armory and it was magnificent!! There are 650 red and white quilts that all belong to the same person, Joanna Rose. The exhibition was an 80th birthday present from her husband and a gift to New York in that the exhibit was free. It was just amazing! If you are anywhere near New York you should come and see it. It's only here until March 30.

Now that is just amazing. The variety of patterns is wonderful when you consider those made by our grandmother...which were also beautiful, but standard oldies!

Excellent photograph showing the magnificent scope of the exhibit, unlike a partial photo in one of the weekend NYC papers!
