Park Avenue Armory Quilts

I so wish I could have seen in person the incredible collection of 651 red and white quilts on display this month at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.  The quilt collection was loaned by Joanna Rose to the American Folk Art Museum for the purpose of this exhibit, called "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts".  Infinite variety indeed - no two are quite alike, and it's incredible to note how timeless and even modern many of the patterns seem.
