Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you are having a wonderful day with your family and friends. We are. The holiday started last night when Bill and I went to see The Drowsy Chaperone. If you are local, make sure to see this! What a lovely night at the theater.

I am finally done posting pictures of our whirlwind trip to New York. Thanks for indulging us. Polly wants to go back in March. This is why.

A quilt show sponsored by the American Folk Art Museum. But.... because of the epic size of the show (650 red and white quilts!!!!) it will be held in the Park Avenue Armory instead of the museum. Save the date, indeed.

I just asked my g.f. if she wanted to go to NYC for this. I'm not getting any takers, so I might make the trek on my own. This seems too amazing to pass up. Thanks for sharing the picture. Happy Thanksgiving

I will be there for sure!
I really enjoyed seeing the exhibit at the AFAM and now I need to go back in and see the Star quilts.
You need to come back to NYC to see these quilts and the second part of the quilt exhibit at the AFAM

Wow! I live in the UK - this may be the reason I've been looking for to take a trip to New York!!

WhooEEE!!! You're going of course?
Wish I could - remarkable! And entry is free too!!! An idea: do you think the presenters could be prevailed upon to gift you a catologue raisonee or two and maybe some other goodies for you to give away - what a promotion that would be for them!!!!
I know if you go you will take lots of pictures(if that is to be allowed)
Have a great holiday weekend!
Janet in Nova Scotia - it's snowing!!

That looks amazing! I would definitely go see it, but I am too far! Go and take lots of pictures for us!

Vicky said...

All of those quilts are from ONE private collection?!!! All I can say is WOW!
