Infinite Variety Red and White Quilts
Well I am back from New York after visiting the Red and White Exhibition.
If I am rambling we shall have to put that down to jet lag . I'm here posting just trying to keep myself awake before I take myself of to bed to get my body clock back in line!
We were there when the doors opened on Friday morning and the impact when you walk through those doors was just incredible- so incredible it moved me to tears. Am I mad or am I mad.
You really had to be there to appreciate what a fabulous way that THINC Design displayed these quilts in circles , row upon row rising upwards.The circles dipicting women sitting in circles at quilting bee's
I can't tell you what a truly amazing, inspiring experience it was.
Over the coming weeks I will be posting some of my favorites - I say weeks as it turn out I have taken 365 pictures and their were 650 quilts. You could have one for every day of the year.
My (PIC) Sue and I also meet up with many new and old friends from around the world for dinner on Friday night. Bev organised the dinner and so if you read this Bev thank you so much for arranging it- It was a wonderful opportunity for us bloggers and non bloggers to get together and put faces to those blogging names.
I am not sure that The Russian Tea rooms knew what hit them with this multi cultural array of women and a few husband's.
I expect lots of them will be posting their photo's over the coming weeks so you had better pop over and have a look at what they have to say and show.
Lori, Vicki and Jan,Linda, Mary and Jo.
The above were all at the dinner-We had so much fun-Quilt talk of course.
We also meet Kathie and Barb and am sure they will be posting photos soon.
Hope you enjoy the INFINITE VARIETY - Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts wherever you read about it.
