and being talked about all over blogland? Well, it's the exhibit of 650 Red and White quilts that are on display at the American*Folkart*Museum in New York!! It's the largest exhibit of quilts ever held in New York City. If you go here, you can see the dates and times the show is open. You have until March 30th to get there. I know it would be worth the trip. I really wish I could get there, but it's just not possible. I'm in Minnesota and the quilts are in New York City. Forty years ago, we lived in New Jersey and I could have easily made the trip to see the quilts. But now, I guess that if I want to see red and white quilts for real, I could go to our local Sibley County Historical Society where these pretties are on display..............here) and one this past February (click here). I just love this quilt! It makes me smile!!
And I would just love to see all the different designs and quilting on all those red and white quilts in New York. I know they would make me smile, too. But when you can't get there to see them...........well, you have to see them through the eyes and blogs of others who have been there. And the best way to do that is to go over to Pat Sloan's blog and the list that she is building so we can all go see those red and white quilts! Just go here. Pat said "Tell everyone so we can build the list!" So, I'm telling, and after you go check out the list and you visit some of those sightings of red and white quilts, then you go and tell your friends. These are too lovely to keep secret. And I'm just wondering now.......do you think if there was enough interest that this exhibit might travel to other museums? hmmmmmmm.... now that's an idea!!!
Hope you enjoy seeing a lot of red and white all over!!
Have a great day!
