As promised, I wanted to let you all know how wonderful the Red & White Quilt Show in New York City was -- in a word --SPECTACULAR!!! Fran & I took the train up and back, making for a very easy and enjoyable trip to the big city. The cab ride up to the Armory was thrilling - like a car chase scene in a movie. I told my hubby that he couldn't complain about my driving fast around corners any more :o) We got to the Armory all in one piece, so I guess those cabbies know what they're doing but I sure wouldn't want to drive on the streets with them. They don't even slow down for yellow lights and hardly even stop for the red ones. As a pedestrian, you take your life in your hands crossing the streets - wonder how many accidents there are??? Anyway, back to the quilt show...as I said, we arrived safe and sound and this is what we saw when we went into the Armory...
...quilts hanging from floor to ceiling arranged in huge circles, back to back. There were 650 of them - all unique and in great shape. This show was a gift to the city of New York by Joanna Rose on her 80th birthday - actually I think her husband was the one who gave the gift. The show was FREE - can you imagine that!!
Fran's friend, Mettie, joined us for the show and so did my granddaughter, Morgan. We had a great time together enjoying the beautiful quilts. Now that Fran & I have taken the train to NYC, we'll probably do it again since it was so much fun.
Hope you all are having a great week - and keep smiling -
