Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts

There's something about red & white quilts that just appeals to a whole lot of people. Well a whole lot of people are going to love this huge (650+1 quilts) free exhibit that is being put on by The American Folk Art Museum in New York. Joanna S. Rose owns all the quilts and will be donating 50 of them after the exhibition.

Something else unique to this exhibit is the way the quilts are being displayed. Maybe some binoculars might be in order :) I wonder if they will let you lie down on the floor to look upwards?

The exhibition starts today, March 25,  and runs thru March 30, 2011. Yep, very short but if you can get there I'm sure it will be well worth the effort.

Thanks go to Joanna S. Rose (and her husband) for an unusual way of celebrating her birthday. This exhibit will also be her first time seeing all of her red and white quilts at one time :)

Addendum - Do you want to see a video of the quilts? I bet you do :)
