I wish I had a new red and white project to show you - so many ideas spinning in my head. I've done some planning and figuring inspired by one of my favorites from Infinite Variety, but stash yardage is short and time even shorter! So, I'm sharing the last of my favorite non Red and White photos. The quilts might be repeats from other blogs, but they're my favorites. These quilts are from the Amercan Folk Art Museum exhibit. The Amish quilts were behind glass, so close-up shots won't do, but I love this shot from the floor above.
The star quilt is circa 1860 - 1900 from Geneva, New York.
At left is a close-up of the Slashed Star quilt (dated 1872 from Lancaster, PA), a variation of Mariner's Compass. I love the border on the quilt at right. - no info on this quilt due to bad photo.
This last quilt (again no details due to bad photo) is perfect for a spring post!
Isn't this entryway great!
Jan and I love libraries. We visited the main branch (built in 1911) on 42nd St on our first afternoon. We planned to go back for one of the guided tours, but quilts took precedence. Jan recommended a great book - Time and Again by Jack Finney - set in NYC in both 1970 and 1882 . Part of the plot takes place at the Dakota on the edge of Central Park, which we visited. I just finished the book and really enjoyed visualizing the city. Thanks Jan!
Finally, the Chrysler Building. It was a great trip!
