Very clean, fresh look that could be created with a family heirloom quilt.
While we are on the subject of quilts, I would like to share with you the story of
Joanna Rose of New York City. Upon approaching her 80th birthday, her husband
asked her what she wanted and she replied ” something I’ve never seen and a gift to
New York City”. She had been an “accumulator”, not a collector she so aptly put it, of
red and white quilts since the 1950’s. She wanted to see her quilts displayed in one place.
When asked how many she had, she said “oh, probably about 70”.
Once the quilts were counted the total was 651! The only place she thought
she could display them all was the armory. Here are some photos below of the exhibit.
