I took some time today to go visit the Armory in NYC and enjoy the Red and White exhibit of quilts. I have no words to describe what I saw. From the minute you set foot you know you are near something special. The room is a little dark, which makes the quilts shine. Every quilt I saw became my favorite. I invited my 17 year old to come with me and take some pics and even he was amazed. Is hard to believe that someone could own such a treasure and share it for free to every one.
Maybe what amazed me the most was the behavior of NY to this magic. Maybe quilts acted their magic on people. I was there for nearly 90 minutes, first looking at the quilts and then looking at the people looking at the quilts. No one was touching these quilts, doing anything they were not supposed to do, or anything. No one was even talking too loud, or moving too fast. Is like while you were there the city slowed down.
When we came out the speed of NY was back, but while we were there it was incredible. Wish you all could have been there.
