I'm Excited!!

Friend and fellow quilter, Fran, and I are going up to New York City to see the Red & White Quilts display at the American Folk Art Museum on March 26th. I can hardly wait!!! We're taking the train up and back and it should be a fun adventure for us. We'll go up early in the morning, see the display, and then come home at night. It will be a fast trip and I'm sure we'll be tired...but happy :o)

The quilts on display (650 of them) are all from one collection - INCREDIBLE!!! This is the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in NYC and I'm so glad that we'll be able to take it in. I'm not sure if we'll be able to take photos, but, if so, I'll post some for you all to see.

Hope you all have a great day and keep smiling :o)

Ooohhh, you are so fortunate! I have been writing about Red and White quilts on my quilt history blog as well as posting links to all kinds of articles and videos about this exhibit, but I did not get to see it in person. Hope you'lll stop by and take a peek!
