"[Red and White Quilts] includes not only photographs of each of the 653 quilts in the exhibit grouped by theme, but also contains essays by key players in the development and design of the show itself, making what was already visually inspiring that much more impressive an accomplishment for how logistical challenges were met with creativity and innovation.
"Whether you missed the exhibition or adored it, this tome [Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety] offers a compelling testament to the power of pattern."
Every quilt jumps off its glossy page in Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety.

About 4 years ago, there was a quilt exhibit in NYC in conjunction with Joanna Rose and the American Folk Art Museum. 653 red and white quilts were put on display. All the of the quilts are from Mrs. Rose's personal collection. The exhibit was a birthday gift from her husband. (Just sayin...she's a lucky lady for at least 2 reasons.) 350 pages of red and white quilts and the story of how the exhibit came to be.
