Red & White Quilting: An Iconic Tradition in 40 Blocks with Linda Pumphrey
Friday at 2:00 | Saturday at 2:30
Bold, graphic, stunning and versatile describes the iconic collection of quilts, showcased in the Red & White Quilting display. The quilts are from Linda Pumphrey’s newest book Red & White Quilting, An Iconic Tradition in 40 Blocks – original designs based on traditional blocks, rearranged to be contemporary with high-contrast appeal. Classic yet contemporary, red and white is one of the most iconic color combinations in quilting, inspiring designers, collectors, and major exhibits. The vibrant contrast of red and white quilts has enticed quilters for three centuries and been a staple since the mid-nineteenth century.
