April's Theme Day : Edges

Hundreds of ladies' fingers worked
on the edges of these 650 quilts for centuries...
A special exhibition at the Armory, a rarity these days:
Free entrance and a permission to take photographs.


Des centaines de petites mains ont travaillé
sur les contours de ces 650 quilts pour plus de 200 ans.
Une superbe exposition sur Park Avenue avec 2 particularitées:
elle etait gratuite et les photographies y etaient autorisées!!!

Beautiful quilts, and an interesting way to display them. Very nice shots. It is unusual that photos are permitted, but welcomed I'm sure.
Happy Theme Day, no fooling.

What an absolutely amazing exhibition of these beautiful quilts. So wonderfully hung and two great photos. I didn't realised the women in those days only worked in red.

I love looking at quilts, and these were displayed so beautifully. I'm glad you were allowed to take pictures and share it.

OMG, this is fantastic. All the quilts were red and white? What a feast for the eyes.

Marie Noyale thank you so much for coming back to us on this theme day with such a beautiful post. The common colour theme for all these quilts brings out the amazing creativity in design. And yes indeed the thought of the many hours of sewing put into these quilts is mind blowing.
I did a bit a quilting at some point in my life and can relate to the work involved.

What a spectacular display, thanks for showing this to us !!!

C'est très photogénique ! Un joli choix pour le thème du jour, ces innombrables bords en rouge et blanc.

I can't say that I have a big interest in quilts but the superbly composed bottom photo really makes me feel like I should see this myself!

just SUPERB!

Coucou. Ma maman s'est lancée, il y a de cela quelques années, dans la confection de quilts et autres trucs merveilleux, elle y passe du temps mais pas assez selon elle, étant débordée par les choses de la vie courante. Néanmoins, chaque fois que je vais lui rendre visite, elle me montre fièrement ses nouvelles oeuvres. Je suis toujours très fière d'elle et elle m'a donné le tout premier patchwork qu'elle avait fabriqué: une petite maison sur un fonds bleu.
Bises et contente de vous revoir, vous vous faites rare.

That is amazing! It must have been even more impressive in person. Great photos!

La mise en scène est, à mon humble avis, très réussie. Beaucoup plus difficile et plus gourmand en temps que le point de croix ;-))

Peter April 4, 2011 at 3:02 PM  

Splendid way expose and / or a very gifted photographer!

So nice to see you back!!

claude April 5, 2011 at 1:12 AM  

Bonjour Marie Noyale !
Beau travail. C'est bien car l'autorisation de photographier nous fait connaître ces oeuvres et cette expo.
A bientôt !

wow!!!

JM April 6, 2011 at 1:16 PM  

This is fantastic! The second shot was like a flash in my eyes! :-)

Tash April 13, 2011 at 7:04 PM  

it bears repeating --- REALLY FANTASTIC!!
It must of been awe inspiring to be there in person.
What a treasure of art. I'd like to try making one or two in this kind of pattern (maybe finish the one started 6 years ago 1st!)

Virginia April 19, 2011 at 7:51 PM  

Oh this is just marvelous. I love the theme of red/white. Makes such an impressive exhibit. I love your work. I'm so glad you're back .
