red and white exhabit

well, i went to ny to see the red and white quilt exhibit.  i was just blown away.  about 20 quilters, rented a charted bus to take us to the exhibit.  we also stopped at the city quilters quilt shop. it was a cold day, but a great day seeing the quilts.  the reason why some of us went was because we wanted to see the quilts to give us an idea on what we can make for the red and white challenge that we are in.  although all of these quilts are solid red and white, some of us, that are in the challenge will be using polka dots, stripe anything that is red and white.  i can not wait to see what we come up with.  we have until december to complete our quilts.  we are going to try to find a place to display our quilts in december. i have tried twice on working with these two colors and it is hard for me.  i am not use to working with just two color and it is not a portrait.  wish me luck that i come up with something.

stitches for now,

Wow, those red and white quilts are so pretty, I wish I could have gone with you all. And now, I can't wait to see what you do for the R&W challenge, I know it'll be awesome as usual!
