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.
