American Banner Rose

There will be quite a few posts in the next couple of days. There is lots of news to share and stuff about New York that we want to show you. First off ....... this was waiting for me when I got home. Two big boxes of American Banner Rose, our newest collection that will be sent out this week to the sales reps. Look for it in your local shop this fall.American Banner Rose is named after one of the first American hybrid roses from the 1800's. We love the big, old fashioned rose stripe. We hope you like it too.

Also arriving this week was the new American Patchwork & Quilting magazine - the June 2011 issue. Our Flying Free quilt was in it.

We have kits available and you can get them here.

Oh, and hey..... what's a new fabric debut without a give-away??!!

Make a comment here about the Infinite Variety show or red and white quilts in general, or if a red and white quilt is in your future..... and make that comment before midnight, Monday April 4th (not much time!!) and you could get a fat quarter of every fabric in the American Banner Rose collection.

More Later,

Laurie

I've loved seeing the quilts from the Infinite Variety show. I wish I could have gone to New York to see it in person.

Red and white is one of my favorite combinations. When I decorated my guest room, I made a red and white quilt for the bed and some redwork quilts for the walls. I love that room!

Thanks for having the giveaway. Your new fabrics are great.

Kwilt Noob said...

I would have given anything to have been able to go to the Infinite Variety show. The pictures I have seen are simply beyond words. What a wonderful gift Mrs. Rose gave the world, not just NYC. And, yes! I have been inspired to make a red and white quilt. Thank you so much for the chance to win some American Banner Rose. I always love your collections!

Ellen said...

Seeing all the blogged wonderful photos from the Infinite Variety show is very inspiring, and I can't imagine there are too many quilters who aren't planning a new red & white quilt. I dug out an old red & white UFO that I'm going to work on, once I finish binding the quilt I'm doing now! Love the new American Banner Rose designs - can't wait to get my hands on some of those reds!

Lori said...

I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend the red and white quilt exhibit. I do have plans to make one this year.

Margaret said...

I only live an hour away from NYC, but life was too busy this past week for me to get down to see the quilt show. I was so disappointed. It looks like it was such an amazing show! Thank you for the giveaway!

Strlady said...

How can we not be inspired by all those red & white quilts?
I just got my ap&q magazine and I loved your contribution. I'm thinking it's worked it's way into my TBM list!

Maxine said...

Love red and white quilts. Just sorry I can't get to New York for the exhibit. However, blogs have been great in sharing photos. I made a red and white quilt several years ago. It's called "Peppermint Sticks" and is a Chinese coin quilt. I used 36 different red fabrics.

WoolenSails said...

I have enjoyed seeing the quilts from the red and white show, so many beautiful quilts and patterns. Love the americana hats, such a fun pattern.

Monica said...

For a long time now I've been wanting to make Marsha McClosky's Feather Star Sampler. Seeing the red/white quilt show...on my iPad...it has inspired me to start working on it.

Carrie said...

Ooooh... Gorgeous!!! American Banner Rose is beautiful, the red looks great.

The exhibit? Saw it and loved it. Check. Red and whire quilts in general? Love them in all their forms - two colors, two fabrics, scrappy. Red and white rocks. A Red and White quilt in my future? Check.

Lee said...

I am planning on a red and white quilt - a picnic quilt to be exact.
My brother go to go to the show in NY and send some pictures! lovely!
I love your new line of fabric and thank you for the great giveaway!

zoeycat said...

Wish I could have gone to see these quilts in 'real life' but thanks for sharing all your photos!!!
My two favorite combos for quilts are red and white and blue and white...both great and have them all over my house.

Me and My Stitches said...

I (along with millions of other quilters, I bet) am seriously thinking about a red & white quilt. I didn't get to see the show in person, but thanks to all who have shared all of the wonderful pictures - so inspiring! I would love, love, love to win the fat quarter bundle...thanks for the opportunity!

Thelma said...

wow, count me in your giveaway! At first I thought I would select one quilt from the R & W Quilt Show and make it, as a tribute, but I cannot pick one, so now I'm toying with the idea of maybe combining my favorites into one. This I know for sure, I need more red fabric!

Tina said...

Oh my gosh! What a wonderful treat for the eyes! I would have loved seeing these quilts in person but since that was not to be, I can't thank you enough for sharing the great photos - the close-ups of the quilting is fantastic and much appreciated!

Nancy said...

Those red and white quilts make my heart flutter. I'm a red person and I don't know why I haven't made one yet. Thanks for your generous give aways. Your fabrics are wonderful.

Stitched With Prayer said...

I have been looking at photos and a couple of videos of the Infinite Variety show and the variety combined with the beauty of the display just took my breath away. I can't imagine seeing it in person and trying to take it all in.

I also love your new fabric line, they are absolutely gorgeous. My fingers are itching to do some fabric fondling here, LOL. Thanks so much for a chance to win some. Hugs...

Tina said...

I already left a comment regarding the Infinity Quilt Show, but I have to tell you that I LOVE American Banner Rose!! I can already see a quilt for my bed made out of this and cannot wait to see it in the shops! I will be saving my money for when this line comes out. LOVE IT!!!

PamKittyMorning said...

Hey that's some really pretty new fabric, love the lighter almost aquaishblue!

Richy Jr said...

Red and White. I want to make on with tons of triangles. Someday I will. Thanks for the chance to win.

Erin in MI said...

I love seeing the pictures of the quilt show everyone has been posting. Just wish I could have gone myself!! Maybe I'll win your give-away - since it's my birthday today! :)

Jacque. said...

ohmy, I have been drooling over those red and white quilts...what an impact the exhibit makes!

I made a red and white doll quilt for a friend a few years ago...and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.

I love your new fabrics and, of course, love the opportunity to win some! Thank you.

Sharon said...

All I can do is drool over the pictures of the show. Wish I could go to NYC and see it up close and personal. I love red and white quilts. Have fabric to make a small red & white walllhanging.

hookinct said...

Loved the show and can't wait for the book.
Your new collection is beautiful. Went to the experimental Rose Garden in Portland, OR last summer. Talk about great color inspiration. Just beautiful.

sandra said...

I would have loved to go see the quilts from the Infinite Variety Show but it wasn't in the cards but I have been enjoying all of the pictures on the blogs.
I love the red and white and blue fabrics because I make a lot of gifts for my American friends.Thanks for the chance the fabrics look wonderful

Sandra Henderson said...

Did you notice the big ole fashiioned rose stripe in the flower arranging room photos at plum orchard from a few days ago?!?! Love your new fabrics!

Kim said...

Two color quilts are fav's of mine, and red is my neutral...so YES YES YES! Plenty of red/white quilts in my future! I've got your quilt tagged in the APQ issue...screams summer to me! Love it! Your new fabrics look wonderful! Would love to get my hands on them! Thanks!

cakegirl said...

I am currently planning a red and white quilt for my favorite niece for her birthday in May. Planning because I am not sure what pattern I want to use. Also found come very cute red, white and blue firecracker fabric at the resale shop that I am anxious to use.

Kate said...

The Infinite Variety show was breathtaking, and I am thrilled that I was able to get down there to see it in person! I have a red and white schoolhouse quilt in my near future!

Gayle said...

I SO wish I could attend that wonderful red & white quilt show that everyone has been blogging about - the Infinite Variety is breathtaking by all accounts. I've made a couple blue & white quilts, but will have to switch it up at least once and make a red & white.

Mary said...

What a great give-away! I've made two color quilts but so far none in red and white. I can see it happening, though! Your new fabrics are beautiful.

Nadilah Sungkar Magee said...

I wish I could come and see the show..Your new fabrics is beautiful.

taylorsoutback said...

Have been living "vicariously" through everyone's blogs who attended that fabulous quilt exhibit. Have always loved red and & white and own some antique quilts. Seeing all the images being posted has pushed me to complete my redwork quilt set in an Irish Chain pattern.

Your new fabric line is wonderful - love the roses and stripes!

Also just mailed off my blocks to Moda for Just One Star. Thank you so much for helping to organize this project. Being the wife of a Vietnam vet, it is so gratifying to see how the country has come together in support of our troops. They deserve our respect.

bonniequilt said...

Thanks for pics of the show..we got snowed in again..can't get there from here!!
The new fabrics look great..My house is 1870's barn and alot of red white and blue!! perfect..
thanks for a chance to win

Miss Jean said...

Count me in on the giveaway!!!! I love red and white quilts.

Nancy said...

The red and whites were spectacular! I think I'd like to try a small piece - maybe this summer. The new fabric is luscious!

Hotquilts said...

After you told us about the pics and links to see the beautiful R&W quilts exhibit, everyone should be inspired to create a R&W beauty. I AM! Can't wait to see the new line and TOUCH it! New fabric feels sooo good and the smell! Gets me wanting to sew, sew, sew!:)

JoAnne said...

I so wanted to go the Infinite Variety Exhibit. I hope the possibility exists that it may travel in the future! I have always wanted to make a red and white quilt and so I let inspiration rule and now have a plan and even ordered the fabric. I'm still amazed that Joanna bought many of those quilts for $5-$10! Your new fabric is awesome! I can't wait until it is available.

Betweens said...

Now THAT is gorgeous fabric you are right I love that old fashion rose!!
I had the opportunity to surf alot of bloggers that posted pictures thanks to them cause I was not able to make the red and white show. They are just stunning I hope that they give incentive also to others to take time to hand quilt again.
I am also working on a red and white now that you ask. It was a school house blocks swap from one of the groups I belong to. I am adding a log cabin of reds and whites to set the foundation. My blocks are from all over the USA and Australia, wonderful cyberfriends that I hope to meet one day

supermom said...

Actually, there is a red and white quilt in my future. I've been admiring various bear paw quilts, both new and old and have decided I want one in red and white.

Thanks for the chance to win fabric from your new collection. It's beautiful.

Robyn *Ü* said...

I had no idea the red and white quilt were owned by one woman. What a collection!

Janet said...

Your new fabric line looks wonderful! Lovely prints, and gorgoeous reds and navys.
I'd have loved to attend the Infinite Variety show. I sure enjoy seeing everyone's pictures from the show. I hope there will be a book!

Pat / Silver Thimble Quilt Co. said...

New fabric from Minick and Simpson = credit card trouble for me.

Love It!
Pat

pdudgeon said...

yep, definitely have a red and white quilt in my future, but haven't decided on the block yet.
i've already made one red and white quilt and gave it away to my SIL last Christmas.

What a great quilt exhibit that was. thanks for taking us along on your trip!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

After all the blogs and news articles I read and looked at about the Red and White exhibit, I was surprised to be invited to join in a Red and White virtual bee! I'll have my own red and white quilt within the next year!

aztel2000 said...

I have been so jealous of everyone who was able to see the quilts in person, but it has been wonderful seeing the photos that so many have been posting. I think my favorite is the Vortex quilt just because I can't imagine the logistics of piecing it, and also I love the one that looks like giant rickrack!

Marge said...

There has been amazing pictures taken and posted on blogs of the Infinite Variety show. Thanks for sharing.

kshackabq said...

Those red and white quilts are amazing and gorgeous. Thanks for letting us enjoy the show through your eyes. Thanks, also, for the peek at American Banner Rose.

Laurie in Iowa said...

I'm seriously considering making a red and white quilt. I have several red and white samplers on my walls and the quilt would compliment my collection.

Pam P said...

I love red and white quilts!! I recently tracked down some Flag Day Farm yardage (Polly's Quilt, in red) and I'll be hand quilting it forever!! I finished a small version for my dog Sugar so that we'd have a matching set :) Congratulations on American Banner Rose - it's just beautiful!! Thanks for sharing it - some lucky winner will be so happy.

Lisa said...

I experienced the Infinite Variety show on blogs through the eyes of those who did attend...and I was unprepared for the impact of seeing it this way ~ amazing to read about what each who attended took away from the exhibit. What an experience! A red and white quilt is in my future for sure.

Kristy said...

I have one bedroom totally decorated in Americana...so I am seeing a red and white quilt in my near future...such inspriation from the show. The new line of fabric is inspiring!!!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

The red and white quilts were stunning. Love your photo of the star within a circle, those points look perfect!

Bari Jo said...

The pictures from the NY show were amazing! Makes me want to make a red and white quilt!!! I am going to start stash building for a scrappy one in the future. I have lots of reds mixed in with country blues and greens - reds in the kitchen - would love to see the new collection!!! Can't wait! Thanks for the great giveaway! Enjoy your blog so much! Bari

Lorraine said...

I wish that I had been able to view the wonderful exhibit. But, there were so many posts and blogs with photos that I almost feel as though I had been there. Thank you all.

I am fortunate enough to have a red & white Double Irish Chain quilt that my grandmother made in my dining room.

Your new fabric line looks scrumptious!

Patchwork Penguin said...

Oh it's lovely!!! might be havin' to get some some :o)

Alicia said...

I haven't done a two color quilt, or a monochromatic quilt either, but I think red and white is best shown with BLUE

noblog said...

Based on the recent NY show I will be making a red and white 2 color quilt. I have not chosen to do it in solids or red and white prints however. Your new American Banner Rose caught my attention right away because I really like red aqua.

Linda said...

Love the "American Banner Rose" fabrics. Have made a red & white quilt and want to do another.

Really enjoy your blog. Thank you for having the giveaway.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

I love your new fabrics! Red/white quilts are a favorite of mine and I sure have been enjoying the photo show in blogland. I am going to start another one soon. Thanks for the chance!

Smeek said...

Thank you for sharing with the give away. A red and white quilt is definitely in my future but after oohing and aahing, which one?Decisions, decisions.

Barb said...

There is definitely a red and white quilt in my future. Your posts and links sent me running to my little red and white bin of fabrics eager to begin that quilt I have put off for far too long. Thanks for the incentive and the chance to win some of your beautiful fabrics.

Bevie Pearl said...

Seeing the quilts from the Infinite Variety Show via the photos was absolutely amazing.
Your American Banner Rose is absolutely wonderful to the nth degree. I also found it interesting to find out how it came about being named.
Thanks for the chance for this awesome giveaway!!

Joyce said...

Thank you for posting the pictures. I wish I could have been there. I'm so inspired to make a red and white quilt. I have an antique Robbing Peter to Pay Paul quilt that I put out every Christmas. Would love to win some of your fabrics!

Becky said...

Thank you for sharing the pictures of the red and white quilt exhibit. They are beautiful and inspiring. You new fabric line looks beautiful too.

Robin C said...

Love all the fabrics and yes there is a red/white quilt in my future

Linda said...

Hooray for the Red,White and Blues! Just love that conbination and the American Banner Rose looks wonderful. Thanks for another great collection.

Nyla said...

Your new fabric line looks yummy, love those diagonal stripes! I am planning a red and white quilt and this show really makes me want to get started. I've heard there will be a book of the show, great for those of us who could not go. Thanks for the giveaway, I'm hopeful!

Meredith said...

The Infinite Variety quilt show made it hard to pick a favorite. Due to its location i hope a lot of non quilters went and are inspired. They might be inspired. I enjoy hand quilting so it was interesting to see all the work.

I enjoy hand quilting and once I finish the quilt top on the frame I will be creating.

Irishgirlsews~Wendy said...

Love the new banner rose, I'm making a red & white school house block in memory of my mom, she loved that block design, & although as a young girl was not allowed to wear red, she did love the color, so I thought a quilt would be perfect.
Wendy

Sharon said...

I thought the hand quilting was amazing, and every time we said some like " I don't see many basket quilts" we would start to see them. I couldn't possibly pick a favorite, but I see a few in my sewing future. It was an incredible display of workmanship, simply fantastic.

Anonymous said...

Have been enjoying see all the beautiful red and white quilts on the different blogs. That must have been one terrific show. Love the way they were displayed.
Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

Pati said...

I didn't get to see the exhibit in person but I did look through pictures. I've always wanted to do a red and white quilt, but just haven't done it yet. I have however, made several red, white and blue quilts.

Kathy said...

I love the clean crisp look for Red and white quilts. So versatile. Add navy accents for summer, and Patriotism. Add Green for Christmas! Oh, to be able to see these hundreds of quilts, all in one place! I would be there for DAYs, looking!
I love your fabrics. I have many parts of the past collections, since I make alot of R,W&B quilts and wall quilts for my sister. To win these FQ's would be wonderful.

Thank you for sharing, even if I don't win!

QuilterPattiO said...

After seeing all the quilts on line I order red and white to do one. I have afeabthered star in red and white must decide on something new!

Lizzie said...

That's one amazing collection of red and white quilts, wish we could see it in person but my quilt group and I were viewing it on the web on Thursday. We had already planned on making a red and white Ohio Star quilt for our next charity quilt, what inspiration that gave us...

Rori said...

It has been so great to see so many blog posts on the Infinite Variety show. I told my husband about it and his comment was, "Why does one person need 650 red and white quilts?" They are stunning!

I just completed a block exchange with red and white 6.5" nine-patches. I am waiting for just the right inspiration.

Love your new line of fabric...red, white and blue with roses...how can you not love it!!! Thanks for sharing!

Jill said...

Love the new fabric line!! I was lucky enough to attend the red and white show and I am so glad I did. It was the most amazing display of quilts I will probably ever see. Words can not explain what I felt at that show. I will have to make a red and white quilt in the near future!

SueB said...

I would have loved to have gone to the show and seen all of the Infinite Variety Quilts. But I had to enjoy them all in photos that people posted on the net. I am right now makeing a red and cream Log Cabin and yes I would love to make a red and white quilt soon. Love your new fabrics American Banner Rose.

Fibercrafter said...

I too considered flying across the country to see the show, but scheduling didn't work for me. I did get the free iPad app to see the quilts though (still hafta buy an iPad!) Red & white 9-patch blocks from a swap are awaiting an interesting setting...

Anonymous said...

Your inspiring photos of the Infinite variety show have me motivated to finally start the red and white quilt I've been wanting to do for years! I appreciate all that you share on your blog. Your collections are beautiful! marisa

Sandy, Quilt guild president said...

WOW, I think the picture that takes my breath away is the one from far away taking in how awesome in size this collection is. Kudos to the owner of these quilts for sharing with the public.
Thanks for your travelog and blog pictures.
Love red, white and blue quilts and all your fabric lines!!

I downloaded the show on my IPAD and all I can say is that whoever curated that show, and designed the display is GENIUS!

farmhousequilter8 said...

I just happen to be making a red and white pinwheel right now. I had wanted to do one for years after seeing a red and white quilt tied around furniture in a pick up years ago. How I have regreted not stopping that pickup to see if I could buy that quilt. I love all of the pictures I have seen of the quilt show. I am sure it was breathtaking. Love the new line of fabric, too. Paula in KY

Deb G. in VA said...

I wish I could have gone to the Infinite Variety show. I've enjoyed seeing all the pictures and can't wait until they publish the book with photos of all the quilts. I would love to find a pattern for the Vortex quilt. I am definitely thinking about making a red and white quilt. Your new fabrics look wonderful! Thanks for the chance to win some of it!

Becky said...

I would have loved seeing the quilts from the Infinite Variety show. I find myself spellbound just looking at the photos on websites. I have a kit for a red and white quilt. It's on my list of UFO's finish this year. Thanks for sharing information and photos from the quilt show!

rickbarbara said...

The red and white quilts were oh so inspiring but you two have so much inspiration for quilters. I just came from HollyhillQuilt Shop in Oregon and I will miss you when your there. Love your Red/Whites/Blues and all your new stuff. I did the just one block ...you inspired me. A big fan. Barbara

Mimi said...

I wasn't able to attend the show and I think I am going to regret it for the rest of my life, but just from the pictures, I am inspired (like many I am sure) to make a red and white quilt in the very near future.

Debbie said...

I have some of the pictures from the show saved in my pictures and have picked my favorite as my wallpaper on my work computer. I have had a lot of peoples ask about it and I tell them I would have loved to see it in person but having it as wallpaper is the best I can do. Your new line is beautiful just like all your fabrics. LOVE.

Sue said...

Thanks for showing the red & white quilts, I wish they'd have that show travel throughout the country, I'd really loved to have seen it.

Judy in Michigan said...

Oh my - what a great give away! Your new fabric is luscious!! I think I have read every blog post about the NY show. It was breathtaking - even in pictures! Sure wish I could have been there. I think a red/white quilt will be in my future. I loved the one with 4 letter names - how old fashioned and fab! Thanks Laurie and I really liked your pattern in Am.P&Q...received my mag. today.

Suzie H said...

I wish I could have gone to the quilt show in NY. Red and White make such a great contrast! I am currently working on a red and white Dear Jane.

Thanks for the give a way. Love the new fabric line!

Heather said...

I wish I could go to that show, it looked amazing! I am glad you were able to attend :) I made a red a white quilt a few years back and it is one of my favorites ever. Your new fabric is gorgeous.

Anonymous said...

Red and white is so simple and so stunning -- times that by 650 -- WOW!!! The red and white of Polly's Quilt is still in the hand quilting stages awaiting the time it can be used. The show must have been awesome for both the numbers and the display. Thanks for sharing with us. Patti

Yole said...

I'll be in NYC next week. Too late to see the red and white quilts!!! But I've read all about them on all the blogs. I already have two red and white quilts. Thinking it's time to start a new one!

Deb said...

The Infinite Variety show looks wonderful, wish I could have been there. I have a red/white quilt planned for the future, but haven't started yet. After seeing these quilts, maybe I can get motivated and get it done. Your new line is beautiful as usual. Thanks

madrekarin said...

The next best thing to being at the Infinite Variety show has been reading about it on various blogs. (At least that is what I keep telling myself!)Who says that 2-color quilts are boring? Those quilts are amazing.
American Banner Rose looks to eb equally as beautiful.

Janet said...

I just saw that pattern in AP&Q today and LOVE it ... it's so YOU (and me!).

I've seen so many photos of the red/white quilt display ... amazing. I have a red/white one I'm hand quilting, and have visions dancing in my head of another ... I just need to find/pick a pattern!

What I can see of the new line is great! Thanks for the opportunity to win some!

regan said...

I was at the show, too.....best show of our lifetime....totally amazing, and I hope it travels around the world, so more people can see it! I've posted a ton of pics on my blog, and I love seeing all the other blogs with pics, too. Fun!

Thanks for having a giveaway! We love that!

Mary said...

I wish, I wish, i wish....that I could have gone to New York to see the quilts. I love red and white quilts.
Thank you for sharing your pictures.

Now, I wish, i wish, I wish...that i win the fabric giveaway! What fun that would be!!

Kwiltsfl said...

I wish I could go to the Infinite Variety exhibition! And would love to make a red and white quilt - but how would I ever choose a pattern - I want them all!

Love your new fabric line - nice to see bias stripes. They make great binding.

~Karen

Megan said...

My very first quilt was a red and white pinwheel quilt. I've also been contemplating some redwork embroidery for the past little while.

Ned's Place said...

The Infinite Variety quilt display has been so inspiring looking at all the quilts, I especially liked the quilts draped over chairs in a circle depicting a sewing circle.

Your new American Banner Rose range is lovely. I will have to buy some of the flower motifs in red/black/gold/blue to use in a quilt for Broderie perse applique , it's hard finding fabric to use for this method.

Becky S. said...

The Infinite Variety show looked amazing from the pictures I've seen! I wish I could have gone-I LOVE red and white quilts!
Your new American Banner Rose fabrics are beautiful.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Tiff Blakey said...

I don't have any current plans to make a red and white quilt. But I'm loving all the pics I've seen from the show.

barbara r-g said...

i am not a red,white and blue person. i love red, i love blue and of course white but i have never been a flag type color decorator. i do appreciate those who pull it off with such creativity. the fabrics are a whole other story i love the combinations in this line and i loved seeing your photos of the Infinite Variety show. fabric is always a plus. thanks

passingdowncrazy said...

I'm still looking for that perfect red fabric to make a red and white fabric. Some day!!!

badlandsquilts said...

I've been collecting red & white blocks from a quarterly bee for 5 quarters so I have over 30 blocks... now to just decide on the setting? Can't wait to see more of the new fabric & what looks like an aqua blue?!

Debbie said...

Wish I could've been there. The show looked great! I actually am in the middle of making a red and white quilt, but it's more of a UFO than a WIP. I will get back to it one of these days. Thanks for counting me in for these lovely fabrics.

PEGGY said...

Those red and white quilts were fabulous!!!

I have always been obsessed with red but now I'm adding patriotic in the mix with some blue and white/tan.
I love the quilt in the new magazine, I got mine yesterday and immediately decided I need to make that project up.
If I could win the fabric I would be in HEAVEN!
Peggy in NJ

Janelle said...

I love seeing all the pictures from the show. It's inspiring and red and white is classic. The pictures look amazing how the show was set up as well.
I would love to win a fat quarter bundle of your new line. Pictures are fun but never do your fabrics justice! They are always so much better in person!
Thanks!

After seeing these beautiful red and white quilts,there is no doubt that there will be one in my future.....I cannot wait to get started on it.....love love love the new collection of fabric, can't wait for fall !!!!

Looks like I'll be getting some red and white fabric!!! What a thrill to get to experience this wonderful show thru your words and photos....
LOVE the new fabric collection....as always, it's amazing and can't wait to plan a project around it......

Barbara J said...

I've been savouring all the beautiful red and white quilts that's being shown on various blogs. It's the nearest I will ever get to the exhibition or any quilt exhibition for that matter!

There's something about reds and whites ... such classics. Actually I got a Bear Paw quilt top done in red and white when I first red about the NYC exhibition on your very blog. Such inspiration! I just needed to get my red and white fix! :)

Perry said...

I have oohed and aahed over the Infinite Variety show pictures and even downloaded the app for the IPad. I would love to have seen it. Red is a color I put in the majority of my quilts, but I have never made a red and white quilt. After seeing the pics from the Infinite show, I am thinking I may have to make one.

Donna K. from N. TX said...

I'm inspired to make a little red and white quilt of my very own.

trelly said...

I love the red and white quilts! I am looking for red floral fabrics to star a baskets quilt in red and white... your new line is delicious, congrats!!!!

Kathie said...

the exhibit was the most amazing thing I ever saw. I was so overwhelmed with emotion as soon as I walked into the armory, I wasn't even thru the doors and I was in AWE! A red and white quilt in my future???? YOU BET probably a few, and yes of course I came home and ordered a couple of moda belle solid reds and white (almost white) fabrics
I love your new pattern in AP And Q...would love to win the fat quarter bundle!
thanks for the wonderful giveaway, sorry I missed meeting you in NYC

Amanda Browning said...

This is my first visit here and I love your blog! The fabrics are stunning!

Sarah said...

I love the red and white quilts. I have a top done in red and white, and one that is partially quilted that is red and white. Then I saw the pictures... so tempting to start another one. Mine aren't nearly as nice as the ones in this show, though.

The new fabric line is great. Sure to be a hit!

Vicky said...

The Infinite Variety show must have been stunning for those able to attend. I've been gawking at all the pictures. It was timely as solids are so big right now! I've made a few red and white quilts but most were scrappy. A red and white quilt, hopefully hand pieced and quilted, is definitely in my future. Thanks for your genereous give-away.

I would love to make a red and white quilt. so far, I have only made a red and yellow one. I saw your quilt in the magazine and it is on my life of patriotic quilts to make. Thank you for the chance.

Anne-Maree said...

I have not made a red and white quilt but these gorgeous quilts have really inspired me to. Your new fabrics are lovely and would be welcomed in my sewing room!

SharoninStitches said...

How I would have loved to see the exhibit in person and am so grateful to those who did go and took pics to share! I've had a red and white Lonesome Star in my mind for many years. Now's a good time to start putting thoughts into fabric! Love the American Banner Rose fabric. Maybe this time I'll be lucky! Thanks for the chance to win!

rebecca said...

I'm so jealous of your trip to NY. Hoping you had a wonderful time!! A two color quilt is in my future. Red and white sure is beautiful.

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

I have not made a red and white quilt but one is definitely in my future. My cousin has an antique Drunkard's Path quilt that I have always admired so maybe I'll attempt one of those.

And by the way, this fabric is definitely my favorite of all your collections. Just wonderful!

Barbara said...

How I wish I could have gone to see the show. Looking at all the photos in blogland has helped, but seeing it in person would have been wonderful. Someday I would love to make a red and white quilt because they truly are beautiful. Thank you for a chance to win some of your beautiful fabric but just seeing what is coming is great too!

Mary said...

Your new fabric is awesome! I can't wait to see it in person. The pictures of all the red and white quilts have been inspiring. I do hope the quilts go on tour soon. I read that they might. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

This is a fabulous giveaway! The show was wonderful and exceeds the words I have in my vocabulary. I feel quite blessed I was able to attend. I also love red, white and blue. The combinations you and Polly come up with are always lovely and classic.

Sharon said...

My husband and I went to NYC to visit my daughter and attend the show. There was an audible gasp from the people in line when they opened the doors. I felt really lucky to have been able to see the quilts in that setting. It really was a breathtaking sight.

I havent made a decision on what my red and white quilt will be.....but I envision something that will be a mix of piecing and applique.

The red and white quilts are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your photos. Red and white is one of my favorites, as well as blue and white, pink and white...! Your new collection is so pretty. Thank you and have a great day.

What a thrill to see so many red and white quilts all in one setting! It must have been a real inspiration!
Your American Banner Rose fabric is another winner and I can't wait till it hits the stores.

Hi Laurie---I got to go to NYC to see the Infinite Variety show!! The quilts were gorgeous and didn't you just love the way they were displayed? I think my favorite quilt was the red and white double wedding ring that way displayed on one of the chairs in the center--the simplicity was stunning.

KarenS said...

The Infinite Variety quilt show was amazing, I only wish that I could have seen it in person.I'm inspired to do a red and white quilt. I would love to win some American Banner Rose.

Swarren said...

Thank you so much for the pictures of the show.....sure wish I could have seen them in person!! The new line of fabric is just BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait for it to get to my quilt store. I could get a head start with a sampler of all the fabrics....hint, hint, hint :)

Cathi said...

A red and white quilt is definitely in my future -- in fact, I have started making the little blocks for one already.

The look of a red and white quilt is so striking that I think I shall have to make a few!

Kathryn said...

What a red and white week I had. First, I had the good fortune of living close enough to NYC to be able to see that once in a lifetime Infinite Variety quilt exhibit. Then to top it off, I won 48 red and white quilt blocks in the online Block Lotto!! You can make it 3 lucky events with a win in your giveaway. Thanks. Kathie L in allentown

How I wish I could see the red and White show in NY. I have always loved the look of Red and White quilts. It makes me want to start one today! Thanks for sharing your pictures and experience with us!

Linda C said...

Since I couldn't go to NYC to see the red and white quilts, but could only drool over them on the internet, I made my own red and white quilt and have hung it to the left of the fireplace.

Your new fabrics and are great and what a wonderful give a way!

Gretchen said...

I really wish I could have gone to NYC to see the Infinite Variety quilt show. From the blogs and the behind the scenes tour on the Martha Stewart show, it looks to be an indescribably beautiful exhibition. Hope a catalog will be printed of the show. I made a red & white quilt for my cousin as a wedding gift. I guess I need to make me one too.

Cindi P. said...

The show in New York looks like it is beyond words. It's amazing the number of quilts that can be made with just two colors. I have a red and white quilt that has redwork for the center panels.
Thanks for the give away!

Dee said...

I was amazed at how they hung those quilts for display. What a neat idea. I was also surprised that they were all from one person's collection. Lucky her!

Laurie said...

Great Pictures of the Quilt Show in NYC....thanks for sharing....I'm going shopping tomorrow for red and white fabric! The new line of fabric is wonderful....by fall, I should hopefully have my projects finished so I can start a new one with these fabrics!!!!

quiltingcarpenter said...

I would have loved to see the Infinite Variety show. Have really enjoyed all the photos posted on blogs etc. A red and white quilt is definately in my future.

Quilter from TX said...

Thanks for the posting of the Infinite Variety show. What an inspiration. It is amazing that so much can be done with just 2 colors and an imagination.
Love the new American Banner Rose collection. You are such an inspiration to me.

Karen said...

I have always loved red and white. I had a favorite shirt as a child that had red and white stripes with a white collar. I loved that shirt and wore it till it was worn out. Red and white has always been my favorite. I'm in the process of making a redwork snowman quilt, while it's been in the making for a while. I love the new line of fabric and I can't wait to see it. I'm thinking it would be beautiful in a Schnibbles quilt. Thanks for the chance to win. Happy Spring,
Karen M

Cindi said...

I wish I could have seen the red and white quilts - thanks for sharing them with us. Two-color quilts are my favorite.

Robin said...

Becase of all the "hoopla" about red and white quilts right now - I'm going to be on the look out for the perfect red to put into a quilt of my own. Maybe you're new red is just the ticket!

Beth Paulson said...

Seeing all the blog pictures from those able to go to the show is breathtaking!! I have always loved the red and white theme and now I can't make up my mind what pattern I want to use on my red and white. I am doing a scrappy 7 sisters with scrappy backgrds too that is a forever quilt but it is a great hand work anywhere and I love that ...Beth UpNorth

SherryB said...

WOW, the Infinite Variety show was wonderful...not only the beautiful blocks, but the QUILTING was amazing! That really is my downfall. However, I think I want to make a red & white quilt now that I've seen them; it would look really good on my red leather couch! And when I saw your new fabrics...I love them too, so will have to keep my eye out for them as well. Thanks for the chance to win them!!

lucysmom said...

Thanks for sharing pictures from the quilt show! I love your fabrics and thanks for the sharing!

krisgray said...

The pix of the exhibition are so breath taking... the designers were brilliant to use all that vertical space at their disposal. Love the new fabric - can't wait!

Mimi said...

Infinite Variety has been an eye opener. The historic presetation from a graphics view point is only the beginning. Such a nice couple to make this gift to NY and quilters. I down loaded app for my phone and have a new yard of red and one of cream.... so something will be created to commemerate this red and white event.

Ginny Worden said...

New York was wonderful, and the Infinite Varienty was the cherry on top. What fun to be in a vibrant,exciting city, and see red and white ( my fav ) quilts.

SarDee said...

I made a red and white embroidery quilt and throughly enjoyed it! I definitely see more of them in my future... I would love to see the show in NY but travel is not possible right now so I get to see it through some amazing photography! Thanks so much for posting about it!!

debbie said...

Thanks for sharing the pics of the Infinite Variety show, how awe-inspiring it must have felt to be there! I love red & white and blue & white, love all patriotic, too! So of course I love yours & Polly's patterns and ALL of your fabric lines, including American Banner Rose! Thanks for giving someone a chance to win!

phartubatech said...

The Infinite Variety show must have been impressive. I saw more pictures from the show on another blog. I can't imagine seeing that many quilts in one room at one time. Made me want to do a red and white quilt. Your new line of fabrics is beautiful. If I win the giveaway, it just may be the start to my red and white quilt.

Mike said...

My wife is a quilter and when she saw the pictures of this quilt show in New York she was amazed and inspired by all that red and white. I'm sure I'll be seeing red and white scraps of fabric around here soon. She had me look at your blog to see how they'd arranged everything for the show...I'm leaving my comment here just to let you know that I am a 'quilt widower'! (she once said she was a 'golf widow')I'd love to be able to tell her that 'I' won the fat quarters!

Sandy aka Army Mom of two said...

I've had a Red and White quilt in my mind for too many years, after seeing these pictures it is a must
do. The pictures and links were great, thanks so much, look forward to some more.
However, before it is just a red and white quilt, American Banner Rose has just stolen my heart, I would love to win that bundle! What is there not to love about this collection? It is beautiful.

Carol said...

I so enjoyed seeing the pictures of the Infinite Variety show in NY. It has inspired me to finish a red and white quilt I have about 3/4 finished.
Would love to win the fabric! It is beautiful, as are all of your fabrics.
I also love the pattern in American Patchwork Quilting.

donna said...

Thank you for sharing your photos of the Infinite Variety show. The quilts were stunning as well as the display.
I hope that the collection will travel to other cities so we have another chance to view them.
I am looking forward to making a quilt with American Banner Rose.

Nancyz said...

The Infinite Variety quilt show had to be breathtaking. From your pictures, I don't think that I could pick my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway.

susan said...

The way the red and white quilts were displayed was just amazing and a work of art in itself. I love everything about your new fabric line starting with the name right down to every piece of fabric!

TheLazyQuilter said...

Not sure if I'll have time to make a red and white quilt anytime soon, but boy do I love them. But more than that, I love the red, white and blues! :) Still itching to break out my Flag Day Farm - think I finally have a project for it - wheeee! Someone wants me to make a r/w/b baby boy quilt!

Del said...

I would have loved to be at the quilt show! What wonderful
red and white quilts! Thank you for sharing with us, and for the wonderful give away!

Nena said...

I absolutely loved seeing the quilts in the Infinite Variety show. The way they were displayed was so inspiring and creative. It showcased every quilt. I have pulled a bunch of red fabrics from my stash to make a red and white quilt because I loved the schoolhouse block quilt from the show but I'm needing a few more reds. I love, love your new American Banner Rose and am sure that some of those reds will work in the red and white quilt I'm planning. Thanks for designing another wonderful collection.

Quilter Kim said...

I loved seeing all of the red & white quilts and thank goodness for the internet that all of us were able to see it!! I would hope that a red & white (or any 2 color) quilt is in my future. I figure that I am going to have to live to 125 to do all the quilts I want to have. Thanks for the opportunity at the giveaway.

ninepatch said...

The Infinite Variety quilt show was absolutely beautiful. It shows what can be made with red and white. I certainly enjoyed all the pictures that you showed. A fat quarter tower of American Banner Rose would be wonderful. Bev

nngirl said...

This line looks like so much fun! I can't wait! I saw the magazine the quilt is really neat!

Laurie said...

I LOVE this fabric...it reminds me of summer afternoons at Grandmas house. She was poor in means but "rich" in flowers. She would take a rose branch and place a brick on the end of it on the ground. She has roses everywhere! The fragrance always takes me back to summer and days with MY sister. THANK YOU so much...I love it.

Susan said...

The blog pics I see of the show I am thinking DO NOT do the quilts justice.....but there was one in particular I spotted and then my eye kept finding in every single photo of all of pics published, it is the one with the white polka dots with the red background. How much fun is making a polka dot quilt??? LOVE your new line...okay, I am a rose crazy kinda chick, just collect them for the yard because of how they look. No, I don't baby anything that goes in the yard, but roses seem to thrive with or without pampering...hope I win... hugs from Florida...Susan

Lizzie said...

Red and white quilts are on my radar these days and I have one ready to cut out right now at home. The pattern is the Carpenters square and I can't wait to get it done! Lizzie

Joyce said...

Oh my goodness, I love the new line. It has just the colors I have been looking for. I can't wait to use them in a quilt.

Jeanne (RED) said...

I LOVE yor new American Banner Rose and can just see a beautiful quilt made from it!
I wish I could have gone to New York City to see the amazing Red/White qulits! The photos were amazing and there were so many I liked!! I definitely see one in my future!! Thank you for this chance for a give-a-way! Have a great day! Jeanne

Sharon S said...

It was so nice to read everyone's posts about the Infinute Variety show.

I have a red & white quilt top "waiting" to be quilted. I rescued it from my Gramdma's where it had a super puffy poly batting, a crazy "mock" patchowrk fabric back & was tied with red yarn. Can't wait to hand quilt it & give it the life it deserves!

Thanks for the giveaway.

lynnquiltsalot said...

I would have loved to see those Red & White quilts in person, but it wasn't in the cards. I've heard they may "go on tour." I hope Chicago is one of the stops. A red and white quilt is on my list to make one day! Thanks for the chance to win.

Jo said...

I have followed the Infinite Variety show on many quilting blogs, but your pics were the best -- thanks so much for sharing your experience.

quiltnmaryf said...

The quilts from the show were spectacular! Your new fabrics look yummy...can hardly wait! Thanks!

suz said...

This show totally blew me away. First, these quilts are all in the collection of one person - that's amazing. Second, it was wonderful that Ms. Rose decided to share these treasures with the public. Finally, the way they were displayed was breathtaking. I suspect we will see a lot of red and white inspired quilts in the next year. I'm hoping the display will be an inspiration to some of the larger quilt shows.
Your new line is lovely. Thank you for offering such a generous giveaway.

Linda in NC said...

Sadly late March did not find me in NYC, but I have been inspired by red and white none-the-less; I have a couple of ideas for small quilts, one in just solid red and white based on one of the quilts from the show and another in scrappy reds and lights, though I don't know quite what pattern I'll settle on. The pondering certainly is fun though!

Thanks for the great fabric give-away!

Janet said...

"Imfinite Variety" was definiteloy a crowd pleaser and I know the pictures I saw hafve inspired me to do a red and white quiot of my won - and what better reds than some of your new Banner Rose line. You gals have done it again!!! Beautiful - hope I win!!
Janet in cold and snowy Nova Scotia

rjk said...

After seeing all the red and white quilts I decided that I will have to do one. But it won't be until I can quilt even better.

Audrey said...

I'll bet the quilt show in New York was fabulous. I would have loved to go to it! And I also would find a great project for American Banner Rose should I win! Thanks for the opportunity.

lovetostitch said...

Being as red IS my favorite color, it would be a good guess that red & white is in my future. In fact, ever since seeing the pictures all of the net - I've been pulling all my red & white out.
Love your new fabric line - right up my alley!!! Can't wait for the magazine to show up and oogle it lots closer, better yet, is it too early to wish for fall so we can see the fabric??

Julie said...

I don't live close enough to the Infinite Variety show to see it "live" but have appreciated seeing the amazing pictures that have been posted on-line. I have a few fun oldish red and wite quilts in my small collection. My favorite is a sweet and simple crib quilt. Your new fabric looks WONDERFUL!!

SheilaS said...

I wish I would have been able to see the show in person but since I couldn't, I have been checking blogs about it. I hope-hope-hope that they will make a book with all the quilts in the show so that we people who could not go to the show will also be able to enjoy their beauty. What a gift to the people!

Emma said...

Sad I missed the Red & White quilts. I have one old red and white Irish Chain quilt that shows her stuff during Christmas and Valentines. Love you new Banner Rose!

kathy said...

love the new fabric line and was sooo sorry to miss the exhibit in NYG but the timing was just not right for me,

Deb said...

A red and white bearpaw quilt is on my to do list! Wish I could have gone to the show. Looks spectacular!

Meg said...

My uncle actually saw the photo in the New York Times and sent it along to me via my mother. It has been hanging in my office for 10 days now, and all I can think about is making a red and white quilt of my own. But you know, then I start thinking about other color + white combinations, and my brain has just been churning with possibilities!

Anonymous said...

I can't tell how much I appreciate seeing the pics of the red & white quilts! Second best to being there.
I've always loved two color quilts, esp with red, not blue. Have a big collection of fabrics and have no excuse for not having started one..seeing these may be my inspiration. I would love to win your giveaway, am a big fan and thank you for your generousity!
piecefully yours,
Susan Vicary

Cheryl said...

I love red, white and blue! I am working on a disappearing 9 patch in patriotic prints. Hoping to finish it up and get it to my longarm friend so I can have it before the 4th of July. And the American Banner Rose fabrics are beautiful. I am new to quilting and sometimes all the fabric and pattern choices are a bit overwhelming but I'm learning so much and loving it!

PamKittyMorning said...

Saw this in the magazine and loved it. So happy!
