12 months ago this Sunday March 25th, the quilting world as we know it changed.
Thanks to the generosity of one woman, Joanna S Rose,
an exhibition of 651 red and white quilts were hung for 6 days in New York City.
l was one of the lucky 25,000 people who visited the exhibition.
Even now, 12 months on, l struggle to describe how that
exhibit changed my life and the way l think about quilts.
Its inspired me and many l know to make quilts with simple beauty.
And so to commemorate that week, and to announce this years
Quilts In The Barn Exhibition, l am having a giveaway.
l have 2 bundles of red and white fabrics,
from my own collection, to give away.
There are 12 pieces in each bundle.
How to enter?
Simply leave me a comment on this post,
telling me how, or if, your quilting has been inspired
by the Infinite Variety Exhibition held last year.
If you are a follower, new or old, you will get 2 entries.
So don't forget to mention that.
If you are a no-reply commentor,
please leave an email address l can contact you on if you win.
l will post anywhere in the world.
This giveaway will run till 30 March, which is when the doors
shut 12 months ago, on the Greatest Quilt Exhibit the world ( in my opinion) has ever seen.
