Red and White Quilts

Joanna S. Rose has been collecting quilts most of her life. When her husband asked her what she wanted for her 80th birthday, she said she wanted to see all of the 651 red and white quilts she owns, at one time. 
So this 6-day show was staged, and I was thrilled to be able to see it today at the Park Ave Armory.
It is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.  It was a red-and-white wonderland.

I will let these photos speak for themselves.  You can read more about the exhibit in this New York Times article.  I took over 100 pictures, and have selected some to give you a feel for the beauty of the exhibit, a hint of the exquisite detail, and also some of my own favorites.
