Red and White Wonderful!

Hi ladies,

I just stopped by the Park Avenue Armory to check out the Folk Art Museum's show of 650 red and white antique quilts.  All I can say is:  Holy $#*t!  (Please excuse the almost-cursing).  But seriously, the show is that good!

I would absolutely drag anyone and everyone to this show, even if they don't care about quilting.  The quilts are stunning, and the design for the hanging space is incredible.  The show is free and runs through March 30th.  If you can't make it, they also have a free iPad and iPhone app that should be available in the next day or so.

If you want to see some photos, check out the ones I found on Flickr (and check out the Flickr stream here).  Enjoy!
