Infinite Variety Revisited 2022

It is official! Quilts from the Red and White exhibit will be on display April 1, 2022 to September 10, 2022 at the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln Nebraska!

Fleur de Lis

The International Quilt Museum’s Quilt of the Month comes from the upcoming exhibition, Joanna S Rose Collection of Red and White Quilts, on view from April 1st to September 11th in the West Gallery. Mrs. Rose’s collection of Red and White quilts became a memorable part of quilt history when her husband partnered with The American Folk Art Museum to display over 600 of her red and white American quilts in the Park Avenue Armory for her 80th birthday. The exhibition, Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts, was the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in NYC at the time. 

“Fleur de Lis” is a gem of Mrs. Rose’s collection of red and white quilts, and its history has been well documented. It’s quite rare to know why a quilt was made, which is the reason we are featuring “Fleur de Lis” as March’s Quilt of the Month. 

If you attended in NYC you are likely to never forget it!

It certainly won't be as exciting as NYC but I have asked my daughter if she'd like to revisit. 

How about you? Will you try and see this amazing collection while it is on display?



  1. Oh how I wish!!! We were there 18 months and I loved going while it was open. I only made it twice because of Covid closures.

  2. The Fleur De Lis is just incredible! I would love to visit this display, but wow. So far away from where I live!

  3. Fabulous show and collection,tho Nebraska is a bit out of my reach.

  4. So glad you will get to see this exhibit again--in NE! Hope you take lots of pics :) The one in NYC was amazing!

  5. Very exciting, I will certainly try, summer has become very busy but I would like to get to Omaha. its a short trip from there.
