Red and White Explosion at Park Avenue Armory!

I walked around the Park Avenue Armory with my mouth hanging open this afternoon- flummoxed at the sheer scale of this exhibition.  Red and white together are one of my favorite color combinations- and there, at this six day show (go today!) are no less than 651 pieced, appliqued, and embroidered quilts all made of turkey red fabric and thread, and all from one collector.  Can you imagine?    If you're in New York this weekend, you really must see this free exhibit on the Upper East Side.  If you're anything like me, it'll blow your mind.  I took a ton of photographs, and here are my favorites.....




A book about the quilts is forthcoming.  I can't wait to get my hands on it.  For better pictures than mine, check out this link with a video interviewing the designers of the exhibit at the end.  Holy Cow!
