Appears to be a stunning quilt show upcoming in at the American Folk Art Museum in New York that features red and white quilts. I love this colour combination! I wish I could get down there to see the show, but it is not to be. Instead, I am entering my red and white snowball quilt from last year in Taryn's online Red and White Quilt Exhibit for all us travel-challenged bloggers.
I made this quilt, which I called Red Hots, in the fall of 2009 as part of the scrappy snowball challenge organized by Allyson and Nicole. It is batted with wool and backed with flannel, and as a result is the toastiest, coziest quilt going. It is my favourite cold weather quilt!
The actual quilt show in New York features 650 American red and white quilts from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. Can you imagine collecting so many quilts in the same colours? Not I, although there is something very special about a red and white quilt.
Those of you who are long time readers of this blog will find this post old news, since you've seen this quilt before. However, I have been busy this weekend, and I do have a couple of exciting finishes to share. I'm just waiting for a day without rain to get out and take some photos, so stay tuned! And in the meantime, go see the red and white quilts that have been posted in Taryn's exhibit! And post your own!
