For the last ten days we've featured red-and-white quilts we admire. Three of them are from the 19th century, and three are from the 21st century. These photos help show the infinite variety of quilts that can be achieved, with only two colors !
You can scroll to older posts for details, but here are the quilt names along with original websites. Row 1: Bold, by Debbie Grifka, at Esch House Quilts; Gordion Knot, from Stella Rubin Antiques. Row 2: Maze Quilt, courtesy of the DAR Museum; Vortex Quilt, courtesy of the American Folk Art Museum. Row 3: Red and white applique quilt, by Mary Vaughan, at Fun With Barb and Mary; Red Delicious, by Esther Aliu.
For six days in 2011 (March 25-30) the historic Park Avenue Armory in NYC will be transformed into a glorious display of color and design when the American Folk Art Museum presents Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts. Defying gravity, the quilts will appear to spiral in mid-air filling the enormous volume of the Drill Hall and creating circular pavilions that invite visitors to experience the quilts in a three-dimensional environment.
