    Mrs. Rose received a red & white baby quilt in 1957 and started collecting them. This amazing installation celebrates her collection, her
    80th birthday, and her fondness for NYC. Quilters, you join an inspiring history! Dazzled Dotty

    All 651 are different although 2 quilts were made by one quilter. They are making the show into a free app for Iphones. How cool is that?

    Thanks so much Dotty- for the pictures and the news about the Iphone app! I have been waiting for pictures of this show ever since I heard about it about six months ago.

    I read about this show a couple of weeks ago on Ricky Tims & Alex Anderson web site. I am so glad you got to go. It looks like an awesome show.

    Thanks for sharing your photos. I went to the Armory web site but they only posted 5-6 of the quilts. Pretty amazing collection and she sounds like a very interesting woman!
