Park Avenue Armory Host Red And White Themed Quilt Exhibit
People visit the "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts" show presented by the American Folk Art Museum at the Park Avenue Armory on March 30, 2011 in New York City. The 650 American quilts from three centuries are coverings created mostly by anonymous quilters in the 19th century. It is the single largest quilt exhibition ever displayed in one venue in New York.
Made using fabrics from the Josephine credit. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the blog where I found this wonderful quilt. If you are the marke,r please let me know so that I may properly credit you.
My client Heather calls this the Snowflake quilt and you can see why! The blocks and fabrics she chose definitely give the quilt a wintery snowflake look. The print fabric has a silver metallic detail which really give the quilt some sparkle. I quilted the center of the quilt with the Flurry panto and custom quilted the borders. Quilters Dream Blend batting, white and navy So Fine thread, and the bobbin thread is a light blue Bottom line to match the backing. Didn’t get a picture of the backing as it was so cold out this morning (-37’ windchill) so it was a quick photo shoot! That is one of the reasons my blog has been quieter than usually this past month, just too cold to get good pictures outside! Also I had another root canal done last week that really affected my week as it was more painful than the other ones. Still not feeling 100% but hope things will start improving with the dental issues soon! I quilted the corner blocks in the border to look like snowflakes with some diamond and linear shapes plus added a few curved designs. Quilted a simple cross hatch in the inner border, large swirl in the middle border and a open feather in the outer border.
