Red and White Quilts
By

Rating
This significant catalog is a highly detailed look at the world's most celebrated collection of Red and White quilts. Like the Log Cabin or Baltimore-style, the Red and White quilt is a hugely popular genre of quilting. Colorfast Turkey red dye became readily available in the mid-nineteenth century, so red and white quilts became extremely popular, due not only to the newness of the color but also because of the extremely vibrant and punchy contrasting color scheme. Featuring over 650 quilts from the past three centuries, this book is filled with the gorgeous and imaginative designs of feathered stars, diamonds, animals, oak leaves, baskets, lettering, and snowflakes, as well as fascinating examples of careful embroidery and applique. With inspiring handiwork, designs, and visual histories, this book exemplifies the sheer magnitude and poetry of Red and White quilts and is a staple compendium of this beloved art form.

The answer: Breathless astonishment at the grandeur of this American domestic art. There is much to love in Red & White Quilts: Infinite Variety -- on virtually every page." -PATRICK T. REARDON.COM "[Red and White Quilts] includes not only photographs of each of the 653 quilts in the exhibit grouped by theme, but also contains essays by key players in the development and design of the show itself, making what was already visually inspiring that much more impressive an accomplishment for how logistical challenges were met with creativity and innovation. -QUILTERS NEWSLETTER "Whether you missed the exhibition or adored it, this tome [Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety] offers a compelling testament to the power of pattern." -ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST Every quilt jumps off its glossy page in Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety. Half a dozen full-color, you-are-there photographs set the scene, bringing the reader right onto the floor of the armory along with people gaping, pointing, snapping photos on their smartphones, swarming the museum shop for souvenirs. -THE EAST HAMPTON STAR "This is a book that one can open at any spot and peruse.
