Favorite color?

What is your Favorite color?
Did you answered Red and White?
(I know white is not officially a color)
What is your Favorite Fruit?
Did you say a good juicy apple?
then New York City is the place to be March 25-30.


The American Folk Art Museum is transforming Park Avenue Armory’s Drill Hall with red and white quilts from one collection. YES, ONE COLLECTION. Joanna S. Rose’s collection features 650 red and white American quilts. Largest exhibit of quilts ever to be held in the city.

My friend, Dale from The City Quilter has  created an interactive map of all the don’t miss events.
How about a guide to the Garment district? Bam! Here it is.
The following is a letter from Dale.

Dear Lissa,
Given the unusual abundance of current quilt-related shows in Manhattan, and the extraordinary additional events in late March, we thought some people might find it helpful to have a simplified transportation map to guide their use of mass transit if they visit NYC.
This link takes you to a web page with a color map that we created: http://tinyurl.com/6b9flce It is also available–just one click away–from our home page, as well as from The City Quilter’s Facebook page

The map can be printed out; but note that the five venues include clickable web page links for additional detailed information about each location, including opening hours. The map is still quite functional as a B&W printout. You will also find Paula Nadelstern’s helpful guide to the Garment District as a live link as well.

Please feel free to circulate; we hereby give permission to copy our map and/or forward the pdf and/or link. Sincerely,
Dale Riehl

The city quilter even has it’s own subway fabric. How cool!

It is truly an exciting time to be a quilter.

 Then there is Tinsel Trading. (this picture is their booth at the Creative Connection) Thousands, millions of items from floor to ceiling at their actual store. 

What about Purl Patchwork? I am hyperventilating thinking of all the fabric greatness that is in New York City.

What if ……..
all the quilters that are in New York…………
during the exhibit……. 
met at the top of the empire state building………
at midnight?
Well, maybe not.
Pack your cameras,
oil up your sneakers,
and take over
the Big Apple.

    Wow…what an amazing show to go to! I just recently found the most amazing quote on white from the white issue of Country Living last month… "White is not a mere absence of color, it is a shining and affirmative thing: as fierce as red, as definite as black." –G.K. Chesterton, English philosopher

    Anyway, I thought it was a cool quote on white!
