Take a Look

This is the last day for a spectacular quilt exhibition sponsored by the American Folk Art Museum in New York. It is a private collection of 650 red and white quilts, no two alike. What sets this exhibition apart, however, is the inventive display.

Grounded by a small circle of chairs each draped with a quilt the collection spirals upward into a vast industrial space. The thoughtful installation showcases the quilts in a manner that would surely please their creators.

If this leaves you wanting more, visit the International Quilt Study Center and Museum online. Located in Lincoln, Nebraska the museum specializes in quilt restoration and has an extensive data base of quilt collections.
