Red and White Quilts

Here is a shout out for the Selvage Blog!  Please check out Karen Griska's blog for several posts of photos of a fantastic display of red and white quilts.  She was one of the lucky people that attended the American folk Art Museum's display in New York City of 650 red and white American quilts all owned by one woman, Joanna S Rose.  From looking at the web page for the museum it was a great show and the display was so interesting and unique.  There have been lots of blog posts and write ups about this show in many publications lately.  Too bad I live in Nebraska and it just wasn't in the cards for me to get there.  Thanks to Karen for posting so many photos over several blog entries....just keep going backwards on her blog to see them all.
This is a promotional poster for the event which was held March 25-30, 2011.
Here are just a few links about the show that I found.  Some have great photos of the displays and the quilts.
