Here are two wedding quilts from the recent Red and White exhibit "Infinite Variety" in New York City. None of the quilts had descriptions attached, but these two quilts tell their own stories. I wonder if Lavinia Rose, the maker of the quilt in the top photo, is related to Joanna Rose, the owner of this huge collection. Also, I wonder if both these quilts were made by the same person. Similarities include the couple's names at the top, the focus on God, a key design, several "fonts," some horizontal floral applique, straight-line quilting, and of course they are red and white.
From the photo above, you might wonder if all the viewers were men. :)
More red and whites tomorrow.
