Red and White, Too

Yesterday was opening day for the Red and White, Too quilt exhibit at the Art Enables off Rhode Studio, 2204 Rhode Island Avenue, NE, DC.  Man oh man, talk about some red and white eye candy!!!

I knew it was going to be a nice display but when seen all together, the quilts are stunning.  Look at this one - African Suns  (on the right) - by Carolyn Burgess, it's gorgeous.

This closeup shows the great piecing and quilting detail in one of the blocks

each block has an adinkra symbol in the center.

And look at this one - In My Blood

I especially like some of the detail Tambra added with beads and buttons

Quick Response, below left by Renea Bailey, was inspired by the QR codes used for adding web links to a printed page, great inspiration!

And on the right is Confetti by Nadine Mills; she used a great selection of red and white fabrics for this exhibit, such as in Line Art, below.

The "X" quilt in the forefront was made by Jackie Stafford.  More than 1200 pieces in this quilt, with 1080 cut on the bias!

The Red and White, Too quilt exhibit will run though February 24 at the Art Enables off Rhode Studio, 2204 Rhode Island Avenue, NE, DC.  You can see more quilt photos by visiting Felicia at The Slow Quilter.

Sew forth and sew on
