Three centuries of Red & White Quilts

Is this a stunning display or what?
 651 quilts on display at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City
The private collection of Joanna S. Rose.
The exhibition's title:Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts
was inspired by by a line from Shakespeares' Antony and Cleopatra:
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety...
  Staged by The American Folk Art Museum.
For more images, a  wonderful slideshow and article click here.
we're all excited about this in the quilt world and it's great to see "quilting" getting it's due respect in the art world.
