Infinite Variety: Red and White Quilts Revisited

The quilt show of amazing proportions!
Even if you weren't there, who can forget it?

I was there in March 2011 with my daughter (our only other major vacation together as adults) and she met my quilt friends and we all attended the show. It was amazing. It was powerful! it was beautiful and unforgettable.




 We get another chance to re-live it through this awesome book put out by the American Folk Art Museum.
Brings me right back to the Armory in NYC!

Our Fat her............. I'm a little slow! LOL I had a tough time reading this one from across the room. 

Here's my instagram feed for this week.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. When I walked into that room with my friends, we were all in total awe looking up. It was an experience that is still and will always be fresh on my mind. It made that much of an impact. Just a stunning display of one woman's collection, arranged as a milestone birthday gift. I am so blessed I could attend.

  6. I have my Book. I saw just a part of it in Chicago and it was breath-taking for sure! My Mother would have enjoyed it. She loved RED. Seeing all of them reminded me of her. Another Red & White creation will be in my future.

  9. What an incredible experience it was to attend this fabulous exhibition and to meet up with you for one Lori and all the other wonderful quilters that travelled around the world to see it.
    Never to be forgotten. I remember I cried when I walked into the Armory. A very powerful exhibition indeed.

  11. It sounds like a fantastic book. I'm still confused about why Martha Stewart wrote the forward though!

  13. I was at the show also. Took my breath away. I preordered the book and love it. I organize a block for our guild to make, and I just had to make the next one a red and white block.

  20. I can t believe I didn t get into the city for this show! I d love to have the book.

    You have some very interesting quilts on your Instagram feed, I esp love the Geese in two sizes which form a pinwheel block. And one looks like wool, maybe Sue Spargo-ish?

  21. Just remember this is a book of every quilt that was in the show......no patterns or directions.
    It is just a great art book!
    Lori.....how about a red and white sew along later next year after the holidays?

    Happy Sewing
