Red & White Quilt

Linda from Quilts in the Barn recently travelled to New York City to the incredible exhibition Infinite Variety:  Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts.  This exhibition included 650 red and white American quilts which were on loan from the collection of Joanna S Rose. 

The exhibition inspired Linda to finish her own Red & White Quilt - Linda's quilt is a wonderful example of this traditional style of quilt.

Linda loves feathers and so feathers I quilted.  Each setting square has been feathered with a heart.  The setting triangles are feathered to flow around the quilt.

If you would like to see some more of the Red & White Quilts from the Infinity Variety Exhibition, have a look at some of Linda's Posts:-
  • Impressions - gives a great sense of scale to the exhibition
  • Texture - a series of individual Red & White Quilt photos
I think I may well have been inspired to make my very own Red & White Quilt.  Hopefully the Infinite Variety Exhibition will eventually travel the world so that we can all experience those incredible quilts.


  1. Oh, I love your feathered heart blocks! It looks so nice on her quilt. I know I have to make a Red & White after seeing the Exhibit in person!!

  2. Can't go wrong with magnificent feather quilting like yours Karen! The red and white colour scheme is such a classic! Another beautiful quilt!

  3. What an amazing exhibition; how wonderful it would have been to see this in person!

    This quilt is lovely, and the quilting is perfect.

  4. Linda's quilt is beautiful! and you've given it another dimension with your stunning quilting!!

  5. The exhibition would have been amazing. How wonderful to work on a red and white quilt, this one is beautiful Karen, I love the feathers. xo

  6. Red is my fav colour, so I may be biased, but the quilt is great. Your quilting makes it STUNNING!! Great job :)
